All about Dada (and bringing it into the now): mata+ “Schsch” show

Last night was our mata+ “Schsch” show at ASZ in Kaiserslautern. We got a write up in the local paper and had a nice turnout for the evening.

Studio Update: Making Peace With Failure

I recently came across the title of a book, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype, by Clarissa Pinkola Estés.
