Heron at the LA River found at

Dear Readers, I am absolutely thrilled that my return to the blogging world coincides with new exciting works from  Cornerstone:

LA River lovers! Join us on Tuesday, March 24 for a reading of Flow, a play about the Los Angeles River, written by Julie Hébert. The latest play in Cornerstone’s Justice Cycle, Flow is a work-in-progress that explores environmental justice through the lens of the LA River and the communities that live, work and play along it. Date and Time: Tuesday, March 24, 2009 7-10pm Location: Farmlab @ the Metabolic Studios 1745 Spring Street, Unit 4 Los Angeles, CA 90012. A community partner for Flow, Farmlab is the team behind downtown LA’s Not a Cornfield project, an art installation back in 2005-2006. As a think tank, art production studio, and cultural performance venue, Farmlab is a short-term multi-disciplinary investigation of land use issues that are related to sustainability, livability, and health.

Cornerstone’s Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras, a theater troupe made up of day laborers, will be holding several performances at work sites all across the greater Los Angeles area over the next two weeks.
