Hi hi!
Dialogue is beginning!
Frank Homeyer is here from Germany and will go to Boston after. Maybe Chicago?
Yes, very! short notice!!
We don't have as many international artists this spring (I think I was burnt-out after last year) but it starts up again in the fall.
If those artsist (there are many) can go to your space - will be great.
Questions: where will/can they perform
Where can they stay?
You can also call me anytime 646.578.3402
