An Evening of Exploration with Benzie County artistsfinalbig5big

On November 28, 2009 from 6 pm – 10 pm, Gretchen Eichberger-Kudlak and Dan Kelly will present an evening of exploration at the Mills Community House Theater.

Dan will show a rough cut of the feature length movie Around Lake Michigan, The Search for Sustainable Civilizations, documenting his recent 300 mile sail aboard the 16 foot catamaran, Hello World. Sailing to Elberta Beach, North Manitou Island, Traverse City, Beaver Island and the UP’s Garden and Stonington Peninsulas, Dan discovered artifacts of our shared destiny. Audience feedback will follow the screening with Q and A. This is a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes of film making and participate in a work in progress.

Doors open at 6:00 pm with Melonie Steffes and Shaun Anchak of the ukulele duo Saldajé, who will bless the stage as the theater fills to capacity. Doors close promptly at 7:00 pm when Gretchen will make her Dancer / Choreographer debut in Glorious Dawn, inspired by John Boswell’s remix of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos television series. Around Lake Michigan follows immediately after.
