Spark reveals art that we might not always feel comfortable talking about. The Traveling Jewish Theater performs "Blood Relative" (formerly called the "Middle East Project"), a drama showing the crisis of Israel-Palestine from several perspectives. Radioactive mushroom clouds are the subject of conceptual artist Richard Kamler, stimulated by his own thyroid cancer. And finally we head out to the Fat-Bottom Revue the Big Burlesque show by voluptuous vixens.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
