Stephen Crall is collaborating with Charlie Newman and Steve Dalachinsky on a project which is being performed at Café Mestizo on October 4. This performance involves Stephen painting, while Charlie and Steve perform their poetry. Skype is being used so the artists in remote locations are able to see and hear what each person is doing.
