7. Cave Dogs, FF Alumns, at FringeNYC, Manhattan, August 10-24

Cave Dogs performs Sure-Minded Uncertainties at The New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC) this August. Join us for a performance on Sat. 8/10 (8:15pm), Wed. 8/14 (7:15pm), Thurs. 8/15 (3:45pm), Sat. 8/17 (6pm) and Sat. 8/24 (12:45pm).

Cave Dogs members are Suzanne Stokes, James Fossett, Ted Conway, Douglas Keller, Adam Mastropaolo and Maria Jansdotter-Farr . Grammy Award winning Dean Jones created the soundtrack

We bring together visual artists, musicians, dancers, storytellers, and writers in the spirit of experimental interdisciplinary collaboration. Innovative, large-scale shadow projections, cast onto a scrim from props and actors, move in concert with projected video imagery and an original soundtrack. We tell stories, create visual tableaus, and produce effects that conjure the dreamlike quality of early experimental film. This multi-media artifact documents, preserves, and celebrates important cultural voices and stories. We hope our stories charm, intrigue, challenge, and captivate all of you

Sure-minded Uncertainties, explores science, technology and nature through the alternative lenses of micro and macro perspectives, situations and experiences. A range of fantastical characters and modern day archetypes, including a scientist, a naturalist, an ancient wise woman, a tailor, a technology man and a chrysalis, navigate a series of transformations throughout several scenes. The performance presents vibrant storytelling; merging ancient traditions, shadow puppet theatre and contemporary art forms - including film, video, sound, and computer-generated animation. Enjoy a healthy dose of the sublime, the exciting, the absurd and downright fun. It's magical, like watching dreams cross into the conscious world.

Cave Dogs international performances include, The Malmo (Sweden) Cultural Festival, The Grand Ol & Mat (Malmo, Sweden), Friskolen 70 (Copenhagan, Denmark) . New York performances include, Power House Theater at Vassar College, The Woodstock Fringe Festival, P .S . 122 (NYC), Henry Street Settlement (NYC), HERE (NYC), The Woodstock Comeau Property, The Widow Jane Mine(Rosendale, NY), BSP (Kingston, NY), Julien J .

8. Beth Lapides, FF Alumn, in Time magazine, August 1

Hi Guys,

Hope this finds you well!

An essay I wrote for an book called "No Kidding: Women Writers on Bypassing Parenthood" was excerpted in Time today!

http://ideas.time.com/2013/08/01/i-just-dont-want-a-child/?iid=op-main-lead

Ironically, when Henriette Mantel asked me to write it, I was in the midst of a massive, major, tumultuous life shift. I had absolutely NO time. So I wrote the piece in 5 minute chunks, between moving, and crying, and letting go, and getting willing, and grabbing on and producing 4 episodes of UnCab for Amazon. I almost didn't hand in. But I finally I did press send. And it turns out I had enough time to end up in Time!

Here's hoping you have a more time than you think you have!

Best,
Beth

PS -If you happen to have time on Sunday, UnCabaret is going to be very delicious this week and I absolutely insist that you come if you can.
