Some pop inspiration unearthed from Sam in response to being asked to cover Elvis.

The song and stage of Elvis that feels closest to my experience of growing up in an exported southern debutante pageant culture.

The idea: A writing, movement, music memory salon.

It has been a fortunate fall for A Better Container. The project has been chosen for a residency at Studio Current as well as for the Northwest New Works Festival in 2011.

And this weekend, I get to spend three days learning about tuning scores from Karen Nelson.

Armed with these fortunes, A Better Container moves forward.

To kick off it's next phase, I'm hosting a series of memory salons for anyone interested in exploring and grappling with memory/forgetting/identity. Please get in touch for more information. shannon k stewart at gmail dot com.
