THE STORY
Our story picks up where Don Quixote left off, but in the parallel universe of the Red Nose.With the passing of Juan Dickote, former semi-pro knight errant and pseudo-employer of our hero, Pancho Sanza. With Dickote’s death, Pancho finds himself loosed of his proverbial subservient shackles, freed to roam the planet under clear skies once again.
But the gawds aren’t done with him yet. Will he rise to the occasion and gain his long-sought glory, or forever be doomed to a life of mediocrity and antagonism? Show up to find out, and to help Pancho find his saving grace – or not…bwah ha and ha!

SF Springboard Workshops

Starting Tuesday, May 31st

Alexander Warnow, an accomplished photographer, DJ, event producer and expressive art therapist, has started a workshop on how to complete your creative project. Over three months sf:Springboard meets 8 times to give you the support and structure you need to complete the creative project you’ve always wanted to finish. Maybe you have a great idea for Burning Man. Or maybe you want to have an art show, get your music to a wider community by finishing an EP, or design a collection of clothes. Probably what you want to do isn’t listed here. No matter. All types of creativity are encouraged.

This workshop will:

*ask you to think big yet be realistic
*help you set goals & break up the project into manageable chunks
*give you a creative community that holds you accountable
*ask you to give support & feedback to other participants
*inspire you & push you in new directions

This workshop is not group therapy. This workshop is also not about how to stoke your creative fires. Rather, it is about how to harness the creativity that you already have and mold it into something tangible and real. It’s time to make your vision a reality by bringing community and accountability to your creative process.

Visit www.sfSpringboard.com. The next workshop starts Tuesday, May 31st and wraps up in mid-August. We meet at Million Fishes, a community art space in San Francisco's Mission District. There will be an informational meeting on Tuesday, May 24th at 7:30pm for those interested in learning more. Email info@transportedsf.com for more info.
