Koans and Performance Project to premiere “We Are Still Here” in San Francisco

Last February, we encouraged Buddhadharma readers to consider supporting the Koans and Performance Project in raising the funds necessary to mount an interdisciplinary theater work. Looks like the investment paid off: We Are Still Here, a contemporary “music-theater essay” riffing off the Perceval legend, and incorporating the zen koan methods employed by John Tarrant at Pacific Zen Institute, will premiere at San Francisco’s CounterPULSE  July 5 and 6.
