crowdshotamonthof

The other night’s show was awesome. Thanks to everyone who came out, brought food, shared stories, and maybe even got a little freaked out by our exuberance. The stories moved around, featured dreamy trespassing, father’s who don’t want to pay for parking, ghosts in our nightmares, and more. Next month will be A Month Of… …

The Architect’s Dream House

A dreamscape is born when you empty a place of people.

A Month of Boundaries: Red Line Book Club

Hillel gifted us with this idea of creating a space within a space after he started busting out moves at a club. The audience told him, “You’re a really good dancer!” But rather than rock out to the dance club grooves he didn’t care for, he had popped in his earbuds. The club was just …

A Month of Preview: Genius Gambler

This month’s theme is “Genius: Be an Inventor.” Unfortunately for me, no genius source of inspiration came readily, until I stopped wracking my brain for ways to make something original and new. I’m going to try to borrow from one of the oldest tropes associated with “The Genius” – as someone who games the system, …

Afterwards, I met up …
