This years
performance ‘Unveiling the Mirage’ explored relationships between
people. It included everthing from personal journeys into inner self to
expressions of culturally inhibited gender roles. From beginning to end
it was a very intense and deeply touching performance. [Photo: T &

Washing dishes for a
concert meal of at least 150 people sounds a bit scary. These
residents; Gabriel Hendrix, planning
intern Scott Airlie and Brad Bishop, are actully having a great
time. [Photo & Text: SA]

This dinner was
served in the cafe. Here are servers Gwen Birk, Liz Schiffler, Ira
Murfin, Marlena Mejia and Justin Dehnert. [Photo & Text: SA]

The cafe looked
classy with white tablecloths and napkins. Paolo Soleri [in blue shirt] is enjoying the dinner
and conversation with workshoppers Rebecca Keithen and Stefano
Capranico. Another wonderful event. [Photo & Text: SA]
