“How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold?”
We announce the 21st installment of the Chase Public Response Project: On April 21st, the one year anniversary of his death, six exciting artists and thinkers have been invited to each perform ten minute responses to Prince’s 1984 single “When Doves Cry.”
The respondents have been given free range to respond however feels most appropriate to them; which could vary from musical performance, to poetry, dance, lecture, rant, powerpoint, game, anything.

ABOUT THE CHASE PUBLIC RESPONSE PROJECT//
Inspired by Pianist Brianna Matzke’s “The Stockhausen Response Project,” The Chase Public Response Project is an opportunity for creators and audiences to interact with art in a new way. Writers, artists, performers, and thinkers are assembled monthly to give their interpretation and share their impressions of the selected piece; they are given free range to do so by any means they choose.
ABOUT CHASE PUBLIC//
Chase Public is a collaborative space for art and assembly in the Northside neighborhood of Cincinnati. Chase Public was conceived with the intent to create an environment that could help balance consumption with creativity, individualism with collaboration, high art with honest work and plain language. Occupying a room that was previously Elyse's Passion, a feminist sex shop, Chase Public hosts poetry readings, music concerts, art openings, book signings, independent theater, stand-up comedy, hotly-contested debates, collaborative art-making, radical activism workshops, crazy-ass parties, and maybe one bird fight. Mostly poetry readings.
