The music from CircumVention was staged at Mills College
in collaboration with many talented choreographers and dramatists.

A stunning Princess of Ceremonies, played by Kike Adedeji
in a lovely 3-dimensional gown with pink wrap, circa 50s eyeglasses,
and very magic wand, introduced each tune with poetry of questionable merit.

Ms. Adedeji also performed As Almost Anyone,
a theatrical fantasy set at the beach.

In July, As Almost Anyone was performed in collaboration with choreographer and
dancer Mary Reid and Full Moon was performed by the Adolphe Sax Ensemble.
