    Through the Red Door

    Through the Red Door

    How can we change anything about our world if we can’t even hold a conversation? In the midst of extreme polarization, the Evolve Experience takes on society’s toughest issues to stimulate conversations that bridge our collective divide. Combining theatre and dramatic storytelling with workshop-style audience engagement, Evolve increases our capacity to hold complex, nuanced viewpoints. This unique process helps participants navigate profound disagreements, transforming defensiveness into curiosity and compassion. In this conversation, we speak with the co-creator of Evolve and founder of The Red Door Project, Kevin Jones, and retired Deputy Chief of Police, Bob Day. Together, we explore how to overcome our natural resistance to change and reclaim our curiosity about others.

    Guerilla Frequencies

    Guerilla Frequencies

    Annie Mitchell creates beautiful site-specific land sculptures that combine light and sound with the natural environment. Using handcrafted fiber optics and rhythmic soundscapes, she employs a method called brainwave entrainment, which induces the brain’s frequency following response. Her work is sometimes described as sound therapy, often resulting in meditative or even trance-like states. In this conversation, we discover how art and science can blend—tuning us to just the right frequency.
