I want to share this beautiful description Nancy sent to me of their space in Poland. Keep in mind as well they will have the singularly special pleasure of Mike’s sounds.
Excerpted from an email from Nancy Stark Smith:
The Global Underscore in Warsaw will be one of the final events of the V Poland Contact Festival Warsaw Flow in Warsaw, Poland, which started on June 18. The Underscore will take place in a beautiful old high school (Liceum im. Stefana Batorego–the Middle and High School of Stefan Batory), in their large, light-filled, wood assembly hall. The ceilings are high, the floor is parkay wood (covered with white marley) and one wall–facing south, I believe–is all windows, to the park and the sky. There are elaborate chandeliers hanging from the ceiling down the middle of the space. There is a slightly raised area at one end of the large space, where the small piano will be, along with Mike and all his other instruments. The participants in the Global Underscore will be the members of our intensive workshop during the festival plus many others from the festival that will join, probably twice as many as our group*.

Now that facilitators have the username and password to this blog, I encourage blogging all things GUS 2014.
Also if you’d like me to add a space description to your site on the map, I’d be happy to. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject: space description and “the name of your site”. I can upload a photo too. Feel free to blog it all!
