(Post and photos by Alisha Spielmann with an assist from August Schulenburg.) (What is Flux Sunday?)

(post and iphone photos by Isaiah Tanenbaum) (What is Flux Sunday?) It was lovely to return to The Loisaida Center for the second Flux Sunday of our residency there! While Gus and Heather took Mercena back to Forest Hills, I was left in charge with a terminal case of post-rehearsal brain.

The Salvage Project

The Salvage Project

The Salvage Project: Behind every special object we keep, there’s something even more important: a story. From the Rockaways to Fukushima, from New Orleans to Port-au-Prince, our world continues to grapple with how to rebuild after disaster. What do we let go of from Before, and what do we search for in the ruins of After? With…

Flux Sunday 2/15/15

(What is Flux Sunday?) This past Flux Sunday was a very special one because it was our first event during our residency at the Loisaida Center.
