It was followed by the announcement of the theme for our 2009 Summer Festival, coming June 5-28.
Michael Gardner created a Powerpoint presentation we projected on the screen, which has been going around the Brick staff this week, and here it is as a movie (which for some reason messes up the transitions a bit, but whatever), the 2009 Festival Theme . . .
I won't be doing anything for this Festival, but I will be presenting my own Gemini CollisionWorks festival once again soon after - this year from July 31-August 23.
Appropriately, as a corrective to the above Festival, my four weeks of (I hope - rights, energy, and money depending) four shows is tentatively known as The Bummer Festival, and comprises:
George Bataille's Bathrobe, by Richard Foreman (political prisoners and impending death!)
Blood on the Cat's Neck, by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (symbolic and literal vampirism!)
and Spacemen from Space, by Ian W. Hill (space opera as metaphor for anti-intellectualism!)
Fun for the whole family!
