My Dear Friends,
After many years of not performing, I am finally in the process of creating a solo performance. It will be work-in-progress and only 30 minutes. But I would love to share what I have so that there will be room for your input. I hope you can come and share a wonderful evening of a show and dinner.
Please reserve as there are only 50 places and dinner needs to be prepared in advance.

What would the world be like if we can see like a snail? It’s curious antennaes, which are actually its eyes, reach out to the world and quickly retract in seeing how cruel and ugly it can be. It is very sensitive and can easily be crushed and eaten. It lives in direct contrast to the economic values that model our society and business which are based on faster, farther, and cheaper. It has nothing to compete against. It’s race is just to survive. It’s accomplishments are just moving to a better leaf and a cooler shade. We may mock it as lazy and stupid, but look closer and we see that it is constantly moving, constantly searching, and constantly feeling.
My life as an artist is like this snail. I am 42 years old and this is my first solo. From an outside perspective, I am moving pathetically slow. However, I have been so busy. But accomplishing what? My mother wants to know. So, I guess this is my opportunity to show and to share of a bit of a journey of this snail.
