Burning Briefs: Tales of the Burning Man
Five storytellers will lay bare what happens when they venture into the desert to live and revel in America's most celebrated Mecca for "radical free expression," the Burning Man Festival. Come hear mythic tales of late-night vision-quests, impossible synchronicities, playa melt-downs, art car chases, shade structure blow-outs, life-altering epiphanies, and all the magic and mischief that happens when 30,000-plus people converge in one place to manifest their dreams.
