Doors That Only Open in Silence (open participation workshop in free improvisation)

The monthly series of improvisation research at Temescal Arts Center continues. Bring your instrument or come to listen. No advance notice needed — just show up. Small groups will be randomly assembled from submitted names immediately before each group plays. We try to keep transition time between groups at a minimum. Audience & participants encouraged to donate some cash for space rental. Over by 10pm.
