A mysterious older woman picks up a young drifter at the Greyhound bus station. A lonely widow befriends a young bartender in an Arabi Laundromat. Superman drops in to the Bywater library. And a fortyish party guy clinging to his youth meets an intriguing older gentleman in a French Quarter bar.

INVOCATION is a collaboration by writer/filmmaker Erik Bosse and writer/performance artist Laurie Dietrich, both based in New Orleans. This new, site-specific, enhanced story-telling project has been described as a live radio show, a literary concert, a psychedelic story-hour for grownups, even a series of waking dreams. Everyone will walk away with a different experience, and that is by design.

Friday, November 9 at 11pm, Saturday, November 10 at 9pm, Sunday, November 11 at 5pm and 9pm.
