WE ALL FALL DOWN:
BAREBONES 22ND ANNUAL HALLOWEEN PUPPET EXTRAVAGANZA
We All Fall Down begins with children at play, representing the need we all have for joyful play as a part of our lives. But as time passes we see that play becomes structured with rules, and when taken to an obscene level, we see the commodification of play. We move into a scene of pomp and circumstance, and the ego becomes so large that it collapses. Out of the earth the resilient underground networks will grow, allowing everything to regenerate once more, bringing the show to a close.

EMPTY BOWLS

Powderhorn Empty Bowls (PEB) is a wonderful community-building event that will celebrate its 9th Anniversary this coming November. Organized and carried out by a core group with the help of approximately 180 volunteers from the neighborhood this is an all-day event held on the first Friday in November each year. Local potters (including professionals, kids’ programs, and college departments) donate hand-made bowls, bread baked onsite and local volunteers cook soup. Neighbors come together, select a bowl, have a meal of soup and bread, and for this they make a donation.
