7 Promises features two ecological preachers (Davis Freeman & Jerry Killick) that call for the audience to turn their words into action. We know we’re up against an impending ecological disaster, but the question is, why are we not doing more about it? 7 Promises looks at these issues with a sense of urgency and humor. This highly adaptable show has been presented on the street, for diplomats and ambassadors, and in the context of numerous ecological conferences. Please join us for an evening where we’ll actually change the world – and what greater inspiration then free alcohol?

Random Scream

He created the company Random Scream in 1999 whose aim is to expose the eclectic elements of everyday culture with proposed lines of flight for dance, theatre, and visual arts. The projects aim to draw attention to what is already there by focusing on our personal interactions and how our choices directly affect each other and the community we live in.
