Since 2011, Cotuit Center for the Arts has been offering an open mic series called Salon of Shorts — now quarterly in the Art Studio. Award-winning writers and spoken word performers Christine Ernst and Gregory Hischak host the series, which encompasses all types of performances: poetry, storytelling, essay, music, performance art, improv, and stand-up. “We take all comers,” says Ernst. “everyone has five minutes of something interesting — maybe even genius!”
Their motto for Salon is “Sometimes it’s brilliant; sometimes it’s not.” It’s always a welcoming house and and the atmosphere is casual and cozy.
Each performer is limited to five minutes, including set-up. 18+, original work encouraged.
Doors open at 7pm for sign-up, admission is free, and $5 wine is usually available in the Center’s Gallery next door.
