Want to do something a little different this Halloween afternoon? Come to the Center of the Universe to see Circa 1751 perform spooky and scary acrobatic feats! Circa 1751 is a group of performers who explore circus techniques. They will be exhibiting skills in hand-to-hand acrobatics and the lyra (a hoop suspended in the air). The performance will begin at 4 pm on Friday October 31st. As usual, it is a free event open to the community. Get a little taste of the circus to get in the spirit. Come check out Circa 1751!

Open Mic a Success!!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Open Mic last wednesday. It was a fantastic time! Everone seemed to have fun. We had quite a few jam out sessions. New and original music was created. We also had a few poets show up to share their original works.
Special thanks to Rachael Shapiro for helping to host the event! She did an excellent job involving the audience and passersby.
Thank you to Dharma! They were fantastic. It was great to see a group of people enjoying music so much.
I need to give huge thanks to Chris Walsh for allowing me to borrow the PA system. It was a huge help. It couldn't have happened the same way with out that support.
Also Thanks to Deidre Hirschfeld for providing Video recording capabilities and helping to clean up.
Richard Hess provided the means to get the equipment to the Center of the Universe.

There were several people who wanted an open mic to happen more often. This might be something to look into for the future....

Acoustic Open Mic

The Center of the Universe has a natural proclivity for an interesting acoustic experience. Next Wednesday (October 15th) musicians are asked to gather at the Center of the Universe sculpture to explore the acoustic possibilities of the structure. Kira will be hosting the open mic with Rachel Shapiro. Other performers are welcome to attend and share their sound experience. If you want to secure a spot, please contact Kira: or 505.715.2460.
The actual time of performance is flexible. It should start around 4 pm and continue as long as people are hanging out and enjoying music.

Thank you to everyone who contributed stories about the Center of the Universe! I will start work immediately to create a piece for performance. The date of the performance will be announced later this week. If there are still might be able to convince me to let you sneak it in....
Thank you!
