Small Box Series is a quarterly performance series limited to a 4x4 box. Movement artists, musicians, bands, writers, actors, poets, and more use the small stage to bring the audience closer to their work and their experience.  Each show has limited capacity and provides provisions and beverages to encourage audience interaction and artist/audience conversation.  Produced and Curated by Lisa Yaconelli

ABOUT MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE VIDEO SERIES  From July 2020-October 2020 the box was dropped off at an artist's home where they had to create something new in a week.  The results of that creation was recorded and revealed on IGTV, Facebook, and Vimeo channel Small Box Series (link above) Message in a Bottle.  Follow Small Box Series on Facebook and Instagram for latest artist and performance information.


From October 2020-December I will be collecting writings from YOU, cut and pasting them together to create a soundscape for a dance to be performed and on video in Spring 2021. Supported by Athens Cultural Affairs Commission there are two ways to participate.   

1) Write a letter to a friend, foe, real, imagined, dead or alive and tell them about your pandemic experience/s.  These will be read anonymously.  You can write a poem, a list, or a story.  Roll it up.  Put in a bottle.  Drop off. 

We have cans with an ocean wave over them at different locations all over Athens.
