Let the August madness begin. First off, I want to let you know about the “Connectome” shows that I’m lucky enough to be a part of coming up this week….
String Lights Presents Connectome
A connectome is a detailed map of your brain’s neural network. Can it be altered through movement? Through a series of short dances, String Lights explores what gets caught in the crossings, including memory, dreams and personality. The show features Michelle DiMeo, Renee Guittar, Erika Hansen, Kimmy Hinman, Jennifer Mack, Matt Marka, Ashleigh Penrod and Una Setia. Stage managed by Erin Heelan.
