Pecha Kucha

What's pecha kucha? Picture a TED Talk crossed with speed dating, and you're heading in the right direction. This eccentric form of performance got its start in Tokyo in 2003, when a bunch of professional architects kept boring their bosses with endless PowerPoint marathons. Their presentations were put on a mandatory diet: twenty images, no more or less, each on screen for exactly twenty seconds, for a total performance time of six-and-two-thirds minutes apiece. Since then, pecha kucha has been used in lively multimedia showcases on a broad variety of subjects and performances combining music, dance, theater, and spoken word. Agri-activism group Abundance NC cohosts this evening's six presentations, including Lewie Caraganis's "A River Bank Account," Angela Parrish's "Birds of a Feather," Karen Howard's "Love, Death and Going Home" and Laura Stewart's "Be More Like Spores: Notes from an N.C. Mushroom Farmer." —Byron Woods
