Into the Absurd: A Virtually Existential Dinner Conversation

Join Tina Brock, the IRC's Producing Artistic Director, for a weekly virtual dinner conversation, where she'll share the table with creators in the community and around the country. Saturdays at 5 pm, we'll dig into the Who, What, When, Where and Why of the existential challenges we face as artists and creators, illuminating the people and the stories in our backyard and beyond. At the IRC, We Bring Good Nothingness to Life. 50 minutes, a new perspective each week. Zooming, Facebook Live! + past dinners in IRC's You Tube Page. We hope to see you at the virtual table of life until we eat again!

Live every Saturday at 5 pm through 2020.
