Hi Friends,

Hope this finds each and every one of you very well. I am very well (thank you!)
because there are a few exciting things that I would love to share with you.

I am normally not one to use reviews to entice you to come out to see shows, but I
am particularly proud of this work that will be running for the next 3 weeks at the
Intersection. Here's a little quote from a recent review by Rachel Howard in the San
Francisco Chronicle:

"(ORBIT) is profound but not pretentious, spectacularly clever and arguably Shuch's
best work yet."

(For the whole thing check out: ... erformance)

I have been able to collaborate with an incredibly spectacular group of folks on
this one, and we would LOVE for you to come be a part of the party.
In addition, I'll be teaching a workshop through Dancers' Group starting on Monday.
This was really fun last year and I am looking forward to digging in deep with this
workshop. Maybe you can come?

Read on for more details. Hope to see you soon!

With love,



(notes from the edge of forever)

July 24-28, 1:30 pm-4:30 pm, $225 @ Dance Mission Theater
This workshop is an intensive exploration of the tools that can be utilized to
develop original Dance Theater work.
Like explorers of an uncharted land, we will excavate and exaggerate the terrain of
ourselves. Drawing from
personal stories and impressions of our world today, we will use movement, text, and
imagery to create sketches of new work.
We will focus on finding the extraordinary theatrical impulse within the ordinary
human experience. The workshop is designed for
students of all levels and performance backgrounds, as we will draw from the
inherent strengths of the individual participants.
