This upcoming month's artists include:
*In the Light by *
*Vervet Dance, Directed by Loren Groenendaal*Vervet Dance presents their
semi-composed music/dance performance, *In the Light* directed by Loren
Groenendaal. This performance lasts all day, from sunrise to sunset,
occurring once a season for varying amounts of daylight. The performers
will be performing and not performing, exploring natural rhythms of
themselves, this community, and the earth with the sun. In the durational
work, the audience is invited to compose their own experience, observe or

*Oh, The People You’ll Duck! **by Kris Raghavan*
This is the beginning of an epic/verse-narrative long poem. It’s a story

*Chaos Theory** by Jessica Creane*
Chaos Theory is what math would be if math were a full contact sport
coached by your socially anxious high school calculus teacher. This
lecture/experiment on the nature of order, chaos, and theories is one in a
series of work-in-progress explorations of gamified thought experiments.
*: Edentia for soprano sax and tape by Analog Arts*An excerpt from
Karlheinz Stockhausen’s *KLANG*, taken from the 20th “Hour,” or
composition, from this 21-piece work. A complete performance of this all
day, 14-hour epic will take place at FringeArts April 7th and 8th. This
sprawling, multi-disciplinary work charts the journey of the soul from the
body into the afterlife, and is a fitting capstone to Stockhausen’s massive
