Committed presenters are:
ERIN BELL, musician/performer/philosopher
Do Right Belly Fire, Do Right Monkey Brain
An exploration of desire and love -- based on texts by Deleuze and Guattari, P. Chodron, and various neuroscientists and psychoanalysts, including Golden Retriever love affairs, babies, and a cockroach opera.
ALEX GOODMAN AND DYLAN GALLOWS, filmmakers
Extracts from the film Paradise Ends Here, and ode to totemistic creatures who trek to the beach and two friends that tramp with them. As they trek the desolate winter landscape their cameras capture images of the shadows of last summer and the sounds of the spirit of the cyclone ripping through tarps. Coney Island, before we even met you held me captive.
JOHN FARRELL, actor
Scenes from a developing one-man show about the life and work of Walt Whitman.
(tent.) JANA ZELLER, SPYBIRD THEATER, puppeteer
This puppet piece in progress is the story of an elegant woman--a rod puppet--who waits by the sea side for the return of her sailor son. She is haunted by shadows of his life. She has to put up with two obnoxious hand puppets who inhabit the same pier where she camps out. The excerpt is a scene out of the life of the two hand puppets, Kasper and Schatzie.
