Miranda July Knows What You're Thinking 

Miranda July gave what I hope will be a first of many farewell performances, meaning I hope she comes back and goes away from Portland again and again throughout her brilliant life. How I Learned to Draw was a one woman variety show. Ms. July employed overhead and video projectors, one screen, a few props (pillows, streamers, a violin wielding child), no costumes, most of the stage and some of the audience, as she checked each skit off her list. She was engaging, self-deprecating, amusing, disturbing, and, well, visionary, as usual.

Miranda is headed south to seek her fortune and make a film -- Me and You and Everyone We Know.

Please see the interactive website learningtoloveyoumore.com she created in collaboration with Harrell Fletcher.
