This afternoon was the neoNuma Arts Holiday Salon. By any measurement, it was a great success. Jill Alexander Essbaum, Anne McCrady, Alan Berecka, Winston Derden, and David LeMaster wowed a room full of people with their craft of writing. We stepped outdoors briefly to the parking lot to see a section of Toni Leago Valle's choreography from her upcoming show, tetris. Sara Draper had a laptop set up to show some of her choreography on video. Saute laid out some great finger foods. All in all, it was a wonderful event and I'm a bit amazed at how it all went.
Jill was also featured on the Houston Public Radio program, the Front Row this past Wednesday. You can still hear her interview in their archives.
It's been a very busy week, preparing for this event, but I can honestly say it was worth it. It exceeded all my expectations.
Thanks to all who showed up for it and supported these literary and dance artists.
