Thom Stanley Presentation of "Learning to Fly"

APG member Thom Stanley's Tandem Theater Company will be giving a sharing session about his latest show, "Learning to Fly", including a low-tech performance of the piece plus an informal presentation (slides and discussion/ Q & A) of the experience the group had at the Les Sages Fous festival (Micro-Festival of Unfinished Puppetry), and some conversation about what's next for the piece as a result of the trip to Canada. Thom was the recipient of a 2014 guild grant to help with development of this show.
