O’Maley Middle School building two beautiful rowboats

On Thursday I was able to go over to the Essex Shipbuilding Museum to watch the 8th graders from O’Maley Middle School making from scratch two beautiful rowboats. The staff at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum was terrific. The kids were so involved in doing this. What a great project for these kids. Very impressive to watch these kids wanting to learn. On Friday the students will be launching these boats from Pavilion Beach. Thank you for letting me involved in a fun time.

Another great workshop at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum

I have taken this course at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum quite a few times and every time been there have learned something new.  Wish to thank Lenny Burgess, Barry O’Brien, Dave Delorey and Tony Schettino for their guidance and patience.  We always have a great time.

UK-based dance artist Vincent Cacialano and Gloucester dance artist Sarah Slifer pair up to perform Cacialano’s PLEX,

a multi media performance event. It is a collaboration of contemporary choreography, sound and visual art. Three works will be shown during the evening, two dances titled Plex 1 and Instructions for stopping and starting, as well as a short film titled Ouch. The work explores visceral, challenging movement and complex compositional structures alongside visuals and moving imagery.

“It looks simple in the beginning but the further Plex is taking you you may get startled by all the aspects telling something at the same time, somehow together. You are getting plexed indeed."  Phosphor – Live

“a combination of strong execution and off beat humor”  The Washington Post
