San Francisco-based YG2D is on a mission to inspire life by unabashedly sourcing our shared mortality! You're Going to Die brings people creatively into the conversation of death & dying, creating a space for all our mortal offering - poetry, prose, music, dancing, comedy, drama, happy, sad, & on & on & on… EVERYTHING GOES!

As a part of our second Alive Inside program [https://www.alive-inside.com] at Ohio’s Marion Correctional Institution, we’re offering an event on the outside, for local community, with an open mic featuring performances by our San Francisco-based artists!

You're Going to Die: Poetry, Prose & Everything Goes...
is an open mic event, the communal offering for us to explore the conversation of death & dying, to embrace our losses & mortality,
to grieve, bereave & honor those we’ve lost & love… while all the while making room for simply being ALIVE.

Sign-ups will be the night of & the list fills up quickly, so if you want to perform, you’d better get there early…

If you’re going to perform, keep it under 5 MINUTES. That’s right: 5 MINUTES. WE WILL TIME YOU. And we will hug you when we have to stop you [just to make it easier on you (or harder – depending on your propensity for intimacy)].

Poetry, prose, music, dancing, comedy, drama, happy, sad, & on & on & on… Remember: EVERYTHING GOES… so do whatever you want.

You don’t have to perform anything; the audience is as essential as the performers.

Please don’t perform anything with a setup that takes much more time than the time it takes for you to walk onstage. Honestly, plugging things in is endlessly boring. If you need to borrow an instrument, figure it out before you’re called to the stage.

IMPORTANT ::: DON’T TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUSLY. Come and have fun. The end. Remember. Someday, we won’t exist and neither will the English language. If you choose to take yourself seriously, then take yourself so seriously that it’s stupid. Ridiculousness is encouraged.

You're Going to Die. No. Really. You are.

Healing Broken Circles and You're Going to Die want to include everyone, so there is no charge. However, you may show your appreciation with a suggested donation of $10 at the door (or whatever feels right for you). *Donations help make more events like this possible*

Beer, wine and light refreshments available for purchase.
