A Word About Video and Performances

Video and other two-dimensional representations of real, live storytelling events cannot adequately convey the richness of the experience --or the many styles and stories that are available to meet the needs of  a wide variety of audiences.  

In fact, each performance is unique and variations are indicative of the organic nature of the artform. For practical purposes, additional video of programs--in whole or in part--may be provided upon request for specific purposes.

These are not professional videos.  Rather they are quick capture recordings and posted simply to offer a range of venues, audiences, and stories.
