|Lazer, Tom & Erika rehearse for our show in Whittier|
We need a party for the winter.
That's a lot of what I'm interested in with this project. I wanted an excuse to get people in a room together, to drink wine and eat cookies and share stories about how the winter months are treating us. We had such fantastic shows last week! We were at an apartment building in Whittier with an impressive spread of food, and then at a home in the Merriam Park neighborhood of St. Paul, where the piece was performed next to a real fire, and we ate chili with the audience afterwards. Then on Sunday we performed a private show for a cookbook author and a poet, and their fourteen guests. We all ate soup and bread together, and had lots of post-show discussion. On Monday we had an indoor picnic on some astroturf at the Ivy Building! So, basically lots of lovely people, amazing food, and community building.

I like performance that feels like a party, and I think this show does. We've been lucky to have been joined by wonderful, warm audiences, and to have performed in some gorgeous spaces. And we get to share 5 more public shows! We'd love to see you at one of them:
Sunday, February 23-- at my just-moved-out-of home in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood of St. PaulTuesday, February 25-- at Omega House in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis
Wednesday, February 26-- at another great home space in Whittier
Saturday, March 1-- at a home in the Central neighborhood of South Minneapolis
Sunday, March 9-- at Skewed Visions in the Casket Arts Building of northeast Minneapolis
You can read more about the show on the City Pages blog, and more about the performers (such great ones!) over here.
I wish you a very happy & warm February!
