VERB FRAU’s daily live web-streaming broadcasts from 7a*11d festival in October 2016 are now edited and ready for your video-podcast viewing pleasure on VIVO Channel and iTunes.

For those not easily bored and who enjoy that real time durational thing, all original live web-streaming “dead” broadcasts can be watched on 7a*11d website

BUT

If you prefer the faster paced TV experience that includes theme songs, cut-to-the-Eiffel-Tower visuals and Magic Ponies, then these 9 BRAND NEW EPISODES of VERB FRAU TV are just what the Doctor MD PhD ordered.

VERB FRAU (aka Margaret Dragu) interviews local/national/international artists about topics/notions/ideas that are important to performance art while discovering intimate details about the artists’ personal creative processes. At the end of each interview, the artist creates a 1 – 3 minute live Desktop Performance for camera and broadcast. (NB: Because the Desktop Performances were so popular with both festival and virtual TV public, VERB FRAU hosted an all-day all-desktop performance event for Episode 6.)
