Nagle, Sano, and Birk
Spark looks at the legacy of modern dance pioneer and San Francisco native Isadora Duncan, and one of her biggest fans, Mary Sano, who came to the Bay Area from her native Japan to dedicate her life to the preservation of Duncan's work.
Then, we join Ron Nagle, whose love of both ceramics and rock and roll has led his artistic career in very different directions.
And visual artist Sandow Birk takes puppetry to a whole new level in his filmic adaptation of Dante's epic "The Divine Comedy."
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
Visit with the multi-talented Ron Nagle, first in his ceramic studio and then in a recording session.
Witness how Mary Sano carries on the spirit and legacy of modern dance pioneer Isadora Duncan.
See why Sandow Birk believes that San Francisco is the perfect setting for a journey through heaven and hell.
