Mime Radio was performed and written orally at a series of events over a two-year period, then transcribed and edited into a novel. The story recounts an adventure around a cast of eccentric characters, who meet at the Tiki Coco, a bar in Los Angeles that holds “Challenging Reality Open Mic” nights for amateur inventors and performers. Eventually, the protagonists get caught up in trying to help Marsyas, a character from ancient Greek mythology that lost his body after being defeated in a music contest against the god Apollo, to recover his voice, his very ancient voice. Unbeknownst to them, this recovery unleashes a disaster… Mime Radio is a novel about language and perception. 

Mime Radio was copublished by <o> future <o>, Adéra, CRAC Alsace, Kunstverein Amsterdam, and Sternberg Press.
