A Performance
Thursday, September 29, 9pm
$12 at the door (Free to MEMBERS)

James Ferraro will debut “Mind Storm,” a ballet for one dancer accompanied by Ferraro on the piano. “Mind Storm” is based around a speculative fiction that explores the cybernetic enclaves and digital violence of combat trauma relived through virtual war simulations.

Ferraro has recorded under various names over the years, but now records under his own. His latest album, Human Story 3, was self-released in 2016.
