Catch-22 at Curio Theatre Company

April 25, 2018 8:00 pm

by Joseph Heller
Directed by Claire Moyer

Disillusioned bombardier Yossarian has only one goal–to live forever. He tries everything to get out of flying dangerous missions, but unfortunately, there’s always a catch: Every time Yossarian comes close to getting away from the war, the brass raises his mission quota, leaving him endlessly embroiled in military bureaucracy. Featuring a bizarre cast of characters, Joseph Heller’s stage adaptation of his classic satirical novel asks what it means to be sane while surrounded by madness.

Previews April 25, 26
Opening night April 27
Closing May 19
Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm
Industry Night Monday May 7 at 8pm

Poet-tree En Motion Presents “Moving Meditations Class + Live Sonic Immersion/Sound Journey

May 23, 2018 7:00 pm

Resident artist Gabrielle de Burke (“Plum Dragoness”) will collaborate with shamanic sound wizard Iron Gump and accompanying musicians Johnny Nue, Mookia and Deet. De Burke will lead a Taoist-inspired Vinyasa yoga, kung fu, and qigong fusion exercise. This practice will invoke a sense of stillness and sacred space in preparation for Gump’s healing vibrations to balance body, mind and spirit. The musicians will play instruments including flutes, bells, strings, gongs, singing bowls, drums and more in a jam-session style to lead the group on a meditational journey.

The event is free and donations at the door will benefit the “B1BUS Project.” The bus will be a “sound sanctuary,” a mobile retreat from everyday living, which will also include indigenous art. Gump also calls it a “transcendental taxi.”

“With the art I have created I will fund the building of a dream I’ve had for over five years,” Gump says. “The dream is to create a space to teach mind and body movements, take people on sound journeys, create more artwork and share what I’ve learned/continue to learn in life. With your assistance we can bring the B1BUS to life in 2018!”
