I first met Siobhan at a performance in Kensington, Brooklyn. The monthly series was called “Tiny Dangerous Fun” and it was hosted by John Leo and Andy Sapora. Two very funny dudes! Siobhan made an impression on me from her wonderful personality and vulnerbility with the audience. If you are up for a great and unique theater experience I suggest you go this charming young woman in the bathtub!

Here are the remaining dates

Tickets can be had here!

Vaudevisuals Bookshelf – “Where the Heart Beats: John Cage, Zen Buddhism

Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 12.06.44 AM

“A “heroic” biography of John Cage and his “awakening through Zen Buddhism”—“a kind of love story” about a brilliant American pioneer of the creative arts who transformed himself and his culture”  The New York Times

Composer John Cage sought the silence of a mind at peace with itself—and found it in Zen Buddhism, a spiritual path that changed both his music and his view of the universe. “Remarkably researched, exquisitely written,” Where the Heart Beats weaves together “a great many threads of cultural history” (Maria Popova, Brain Pickings) to illuminate Cage’s struggle to accept himself and his relationship with choreographer Merce Cunningham. Freed to be his own man, Cage originated exciting experiments that set him at the epicenter of a new avant-garde forming in the 1950s. Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, Allan Kaprow, Morton Feldman, and Leo Castelli were among those influenced by his ‘teaching’ and ‘preaching.’ Where the Heart Beats shows the blossoming of Zen in the very heart of American culture.
