The Lovinator by Wax Wing Inc. (Denver)

In a land far, far away, where time is circular, where “boobs are holy, poets mad, illustrious punks of progress shriek, where souls are outlawed and hearts are sick”… the second coming has come and will come again. We call it Rock ‘n Roll Tableau Vivant. It’s like Ziggy Jesus Christ Super Stardust silent film full of NOISE. $14 at door / $11 online

HOLDING PATTERN by Art as Action
A collaborative dance / poetry / music / visual art performance

Two weekend intensives and several on-going classes; see the www.controlgroupproductions.org for details and pricing.
