OPEN HOUSE: Boundaries

  • Open House 4419 State Line Road Kansas City, MO, 64111 United States (map)

A performance program of RCMA arranged for Open House

When the lights go down, where do the edges of place, person, or picture start and stop? How to engage the invisible lines drawn around regions, neighborhoods, genres, relationships, and the like? Do I squint, or raise my hand? Looking longer, listening forward.

Join us on a chilly winter evening for a screen reading performance wherein several artists will make the audio track for a most unusual vhs selection. Performers Amos Leager, Flannery Cashill, Zophia McDougal, Emily Eyrie, Jori Sackin, Ana Maldonado, and Megan Pobywajlo will read to a silent screening of early 90’s television recordings found on tape in one Woman’s basement in Kansas City, Missouri.

*Note: These events are not climate controlled, dress warm! Hot drinks provided.Access accommodations available on request. Parking at the house is limited and should be used on an as needed basis. Street parking is available on adjacent streets.


Open House is an experimental and collaborative neighborhood arts project located inside a single-family house in KCMO. We provide space for artists to explore their practice, provide a platform for immersive experiences, encourage collaboration, and help stage communal gatherings. Open House is funded through an ArtsKC Inspiration Grant and by individual donors. Check out or follow for more info.
