The X-rated life of bees, decoding Chartres Cathedral and Montana stories highlight Pecha Kucha Night Wednesday, September 12 at the Ellen Theatre.
Writer Alan Kesselheim , photographer Thomas Lee, David Baumbauer of MSU’s Plant Growth Center, and visiting French professor Pascale Hickman are among the 12 fascinating and eclectic presenters at Bozeman’s fourth Pecha Kucha Night.
Kesselheim and Lee will team to present a photo essay of Montana stories titled “Behind every door and fencepost;” Bambauer will discuss “Tales from the Hive: Sex, murder and the queen;” and Hickman will present “Reading a Medieval Picture book: Chartres Cathedral.”
Additional presenters include: Alice Stanley (Leonard Cohen’s secret life); Angie Kesee (Having a wonderful time: wish you were here. Postcards Across America); Kathleen Rauch (Bokashi—Fermenting food waste); Jim Madden (Drawn to Scale … a personal history); Megan McGlothlen (Food: Shaping Impressions); Tom Dickson (Confessions of a failed cartoonist); Stephanie Newman (A printing sensation resweeping the nation: Letterpress!); and Steve Maly (Me and Louis Riel).
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the first presentation starting at 7:20 p.m. Pecha Kucha (peh-chak-cha) offers anyone with a passion or a vision--designers, artists, inventors, architects, adventurers, enterpreneurs—an opportunity to share their ideas with the community during a fast-paced, friendly social get-together.
There's just one catch--you only have 20 slides x 20 seconds each, a total of 6 minutes, 40 seconds!
Kent Davis, teacher, performer and comedian, will serve as MC.
