Just a quick note until the “official” September post goes up!
Had a busy August with several performances and began teaching again – a new course at Cal State University Monterey, teaching Creative Writing and Social Action has been especially exciting!
With the play – I continue to rewrite/revise the script that was produced while at the Atlantic Center for the Arts while exploring future venues and support opportunities for next year. The Community Engagement component will also continue to grow – we had a small gathering of women to generate interest and discuss issues of skin color and beauty recently, entitled “The Sweetness of Being in Our Own Skin” (featuring desserts!) Let me know if you are interested in hosting a small house party to help fundraise for the project.
Next up will be the October 23 A History of the Body staged excerpt and story circle, so please save the date to join us! It will be at CounterPULSE in San Francisco, 7:30pm.
I’ll also be present at the PAWA (Philippine Writers & Artists) table at the Filipino Book Festival on October 2.
Last, I am available for BOOKING (workshops, speaking engagements, performances) for late 2011 through 2012. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and cc’ Alicia Kester at email@example.com.
