Central Idea of the NYhelpsNY Benefit Variety Event on December 16, 2012 at Dixon Place:
The huge disconnect between those who know first hand:the relief work and level of trauma in our city, and those who don’t. The disconnect between the classes, between the haves and have nots. Sandy has brought all of this to the forefront.
The evening was also, in part, the launching of performance-centered events by the Ecologic Vibrancy Project that seek to foster dialogue with current ideas through performance.
The piece I directed for the Puppets + Poets festival Time of Whelm was a part of this, as well as my clown Jack Somebody
Jim Moore was one of the photographers at the event and graciously invited me to be a guest blogger on his beautiful site, Vaude Visuals. Full coverage of the event is here:
