we're all mad here

Last weekend The Triple Door's Mainstage was transformed into The Looking Glass- a swanky and brazen night club with Eat Me and Drink Me as the snarky hostesses.  The party guests? You, plus the magical, seemingly discombobulated characters of Alice in Wonderland.

The wonderment of meeting new party guests can be excitingly daunting, and with the help of the savvy White Rabbit guests made an acquaintance with the frenzied Mad Hatter, the defiantly sassy Red Queen, the graceful and logically illogical Caterpillar, and of course, the mischievous Cheshire Cat.. just to name a few.  

We're counting the days until we meet the sexy crazed characters at The Looking Glass again.

The mad buzz for Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland at The Triple Door:

A lil' Q&A ~ Saul Williams

Last year, the multi-faceted poet, actor and musician Saul Williams put a call out through social media for poets to send in their writings. After reviewing over 8,000 poems, 100 were selected then fused into one voice and Chorus: A Literary Mixtape was born.  The Triple Door asked Saul a few questions to get an idea of the sound of his internal mixtape. 

The Triple Door: What did you have for breakfast?
Saul Williams: Nothing yet, I'm still sleeping. Typing, walking, as I look for coffee.

TD: What inspires you to create?
SW: Good coffee. Good films. Good books. Good music (but I prefer great music). Great conversations where we connect dots, take shots for every epiphany, dismantle some long held suspicion, confirm the unbelievable, and laugh laugh laugh (in that order). I also like nature.

TD: Who inspires you to create? and what would you say to them if they were standing in front of you right now?
SW: They are standing here right now and they won't let me type it.

TD: Do you believe in "writer's block"?
SW: No. I believe there is a time and place for everything and that 'everything' includes not writing. There's a time to make music and a time to make love, a time to write poetry and a time to just dance. In fact, there's a lot of time.

TD: You've mentioned, at the end of the day, you're a performer. What do you love most about performing?
SW: I love the challenge of being put on the spot and the only escape is to create- to free yourself from your fears and just go there.

TD: What was the first record you ever bought?
SW: Spoonie Gee- Spoonin Rap

TD: Describe your art in three words:
SW: Pure Punk Rock
