Andrei Codrescu, Henry Alford and Mark Twain Interview Each Other, with Max Rada dada performing and live, real-time drawings by Flash Rosenberg, introduced by Paul Holdengräber (as Mark Twain)
Direction: Flash Rosenberg
Video editor: Sarah Lohman
Andrei Codrescu’s new book, The Posthuman Dada Guide: Tzara and Lenin Play Chess, will be used as the chief oracle in this orgy of bibliomania.
Is old age a form of Dada expression? At what point does "eccentric" turn into "Dadaist?" wonders Henry Alford, in his new book, How to Live: A Search for Wisdom from Old People (While They Are Still on This Earth).
Paul Holdengräber hosts this discussion, drifting in and out of character as Mark Twain, who just wrote Who is Mark Twain? by Mark Twain himself.
Projected REAL TIME conversation drawing by Flash Rosenberg and "Unexceptional Tricks" by Max rada dada add tinsel to the literary merriment.
