Her large-scale work, The Trash Project, was named a #1 Arts Event by the Austin American-Statesman, #1 Dance Event by the Austin Chronicle, Most Outstanding Dance Concert by the Austin Critics Table, and is the subject of a feature-length documentary film entitled Trash Dance. Allison is a native Texan and holds an MFA in Choreography and Performance from Mills College and a BA in Anthropology from Wake Forest University.
Paul Finley has been teaching guitar for over 25 years. He has performed for many years in Austin as a soloist, a theater musician, a children’s performer, and with an Austin Celtic and Cajun band (Glenn Glaz/Bayou Beaujolais), and has performed with the Austin Symphony Orchestra and Phil Keaggy. You can also find him backing up artists like Gina Chavez, Todd Garza, Anyah Dishon, Dave Thies, and Daniel Makins live and in the studio. His soundtracks have been used in documentaries, websites, presentations and commercials for Milwaukee Public Museum, U.W. Milwaukee, Arizona State Parks, Anasazi Foundation, Imagine Art, Sun Pop Studio productions, author Keith Miller and other regional commercials & television. He both teaches at One Day Academy and offers private lessons.
Pub Church stats at 5:30 PM in the backroom of Scholz Garten. The second half of the conversation is opened up to the congregation as a roving microphone gives voice to all who wish to comment, question, and share their perspective. At the end of the discussion, a radically-open Communion service is always offered.
