A Few Good Stories

Spark gets an insider's look at the intricate process of creation and the discovery of one's voice. Experience Jaime Guerrero working at the Bay Area Glass Institute as he and other glass artists coordinate their movements in order to create his detailed pieces. Lauren Yee and the high school students of the SF Young Playwrights Festival show us the maturity and talent of first-time playwrights as they see their theatrical creations put into performance. The memories of Iranian-Americans are preserved in Taraneh Hemami's work as she prepares for ZeroOne in San Jose. Finally, Rebar Encanment project reminds us that a little humor can help in a time of transition as Southern Exposure revamps their gallery space.
