Announcements: butoh dance and films coming

One of our guides, Joan Laage, is also an accomplished butoh dancer - she and her group staged a very interesting 'Wandering & Wondering' butoh-happenings last summer in SJG (link to pics here);  they will be doing it again this summer:  Saturday, August 4 - don't miss it!  But before that, the group will have 2 more performances you might want to see:

FILMS: the Unit 86 film non-committee (we are working on non-mission statement) would like to show you 4 japanese films this season  (2 documentaries and 2 feature movies).

- AUGUST:  Thursday 8/23/12 - 1:00 pm
- OCTOBER: Thursday 10/18//12 - 1:00 pm
