What a great No Shush Salon!
We mixed things up a bit and had our open mic intermixed with Paula Ngo's belly dance performances along with a mini-dance class. Here's a recap:
Brandon: Charcoal drawing of Amber abd poison on a dead body. You can come home. The training of playing chess.
Paula did a beautiful serpentine dance to The Smiths.
Mike: The living ghost girl in the translucent dress haunted Floyd's building. He blushed. Haunting, it's kind of what ghosts do.
Paula did a more sprightly hip-bopping song of Amores y Amores.
Ed: A story of a kidnapping. Aunt Martha was driving Jack. Then a stop that changed everything.
Then a poem called "Homework O Homework".
Mini Belly Dance Lesson! Check out the pics below.
Allison: Her first comedy routine and she shared it with us! Sneaky woman recorded it:
Alex: First scene of a Novelette about the beast princess. No one dared disturb the oracle. 12 augers, one is her uncle. Chose your words with care.
Rhiannon: Hospital bed sheets had more color in them than the cadaver in drawer two. Magical, freaky cadaver. "What the hell do we do? It's a self healing corpse."
J9: The first chapter of The Three Hazels. It's Hazel's 73rd birthday on the night the lights went out in Chicago. There was chocolate cake and an epidemic of dying children.
Paula wrapped the evening up with a traditional belly dance. Check out her fantastic website: Sepia Tribal
