About GESTURES: "The path of life wanders through many landscapes and marks the routes once traveled. Encounters with inhabitants of different cultures shape the understanding of diversity. Glimpses of foreign lives better my compassion for others not of my own persuasion. Without words, gestures speak the language of all time. A celebration of the similarities and like-spirited people, my goal is to share those moments with others and hope that we can understand that which is not only familiar to us."
All screenings will be held at the Saugerties Public Library at 7:30PM.
Poetry reading at Cross Contemporary Art gallery. More readers and details TBA.

A three hour purification with Linda Montano and 12 performers, MC's by Laura Kopczack. At The Reformed Church of Saugerties.
Linda Montano, of the shoe-selling Saugerties family, has been a major force in the world of performance art since the early 1970s, when she followed sculpture studies, did a stint as a nun, and completed her MFA at the University of Wisconsin in Madison with a seminal work wherein she bound herself to another person for a full year. Her work as always been about shackles and spirituality. In addition to her tangled relationship with the Catholicism in which she was raised, she has spent much time in Zen monasteries and in a variety of ashrams. Linda Montano lives in Saugerties.
Arm-of-the-Sea Theater is in the process of uncovering and re-purposing the site of an 19th century water-powered Paper Mill on the banks of the Esopus Creek in Saugerties.

Arm-of-the-Sea’s proposed Tidewater Center will transform these mill ruins into a place for performing arts, river ecology and local history.
