Caroline Maryan takes us on the journey with her and shows us not only the great shot she went for, but also who she met along the way, what went into processing the photos, and what she discovered about herself doing it all.

Listen to Ingetje Tadros's stories - what she sees and feels is expressed fully through the words and her photographs. Through her photographs, Ingejte speaks about the families and people whom she met in Bali. Their stories of dealing with mental illness and forced to live in locked rooms.

Improv Madness: Rice Krispies

BY DAN DEMING-HENES
@ VOL 17 ON APR 14, 2016

Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "Rice Krispies." Hilarity ensued.

Dan Deming-Henes, as a professional designer, he has the requisite beard and attitude. Besides being able to trim facial hair, he has also had experience trimming trees as an Arborist. Realizing the glamorous lifestyle that goes along with shrubbery care was not for him, he struck out on his own, making art and telling jokes. He became the house manager for Atlas Improv Company in 2005, which he discovered required a surprising amount of diaper changing. Undeterred, he started taking classes and eventually joined the company as a performer in 2012. He now has people to take care of the diaper changing for him.
