Join us, for one night only, as we shine a light on binaries, a light so bright that these binaries begin to warp. New oppositions emerge, new couplings: presence versus abscess, versus abyss, versus obsess. There are ones now, but no zeroes, the zeros look like figure eights.

Doors are open that can’t be closed; they will have to be something else. Our writers are either asleep or in wait, following a compass that only shows North or death. Come along as we navigate this frontier. Let us take you somewhere new.

ENTER>text is a living literary journal, an immersive event where the audience is activated to seek out unique encounters with text throughout the whole of Concord.

ENTER>text: Obsolescence – November 17th 2012



If you stop to wonder whether or not you are obsolete, it’s already too late. Stop wondering and start celebrating. We have crossed the threshold; humanity is entering a brave new age: The Age of Obsolescence.

Save the Date – an immersive engagement. A bacchanal in a forest of telephone poles. The animals only pretend to be extinct. Come face-to-face with your intended in a true portable document format. Now that we’re no longer needed, we can explore what it is that we want.

There is no stage, no podium. Guests will seek out their own unique encounters in text. Readers and their work will appear throughout the space, from the gallery and bedrooms to vehicles and secret corners, a living literary journal.


Diana Arterian, Mark S Bernal, Saehee Cho, Sam Cohen, Kestrel Burley, Stacy Elaine Dacheux, Marco Franco DiDomenico, Kate Durbin, Lauren Eggert-Crowe, Daniel Hockenson, Henry Hoke, Bryan Hurt, Amy Howden-Chapman, Emily Kiernan, Michael Molitch-Hou, Lan Pham, Tracy Jeanne Rosenthal, Kirsty Singer, Stephen Van Dyck.
