The Long Table is an experimental public forum originally developed by performance artist Lois Weaver. The Long Table experiments with participation and public engagement by re-appropriating a dinner table atmosphere as a public forum, and encouraging informal conversations on serious topics. It is literally a very long table set up with chairs and refreshments where anyone and everyone is welcome to come to the table, ask questions, make statements, leave comments, or simply sit, listen and watch.
This Long Table is held in concurrence with Palissimo's Strange Cargo. Performances are May 3 - 13 Thursday - Sunday at Synod Hall and presented by Performance Space 122 in conjunction with The Cathedral Church of St. John's the Divine.
