Performances, music, cooking demos
Saturday, Dec. 18, 7:00-11:30 p.m. at the Nonstop Institute
Nonstop Institute’s holiday Gala fundraiser will feature performances, music and artful cooking demos. Shuffle by actress/writer Louise Smith will present random contents of the performer’s psyche responding to a prescribed playlist with audience as director and witness. Cuban-born multimedia artist Juansi Gonzalez’s In the name of God: Odios, Oh Dios! Odium, Oh to Him! meditates on uniforms and uniformity and has been described as a “therapy of confrontation.” Dancer Jill Becker will perform Indictment, a tribute to Iraqi women who have lived for a generation with economic embargo and war. Chefs Raul Enriquez (NYC) and Michael Casselli (YS) will team up via skype to tempt the audience with Burrito Mambo, a mouth watering performance with a delicious payoff.
