Update #3

Soon, you will see all of our amazing digital memories...


Hello everyone!

We just wanted to reach out and let you know that everyone who requested a Gift will receive one soon. Additionally, you will be able to view almost all of our videos and pictures: we will be uploading them to the Oracle Blog. We are still in the process of sorting through everything, but we will send out updates everyone once-in-a-while to let you know what we've posted.

It was such an amazing trip. We want to show each of you what you helped us accomplish. Stay tuned for more great videos!

In the meantime, here is a Belarusian newspaper website with pictures from our performance in Brest.

Update #2

Want Belarusian postcard and candy? You deserve it!


Hello from Minsk!

You did it! You helped us reach our goal - and then you helped us pass our goal - and now our trip will be absolutely perfect!

We are having a wonderful time, by the way. And our new theatre piece is an amazing story. Four travelers undertake an epic journey through the Belovezhskaya Pushcha in search of a mysterious flower that makes wishes come true. They must overcome greed, selfishness, and face their greatest fears as the spirits of the forest try to lead them astray. And...we made it in 5 days! The Belarusian artists are very talented and creative individuals. We can't wait to show it to you!

We would like to send you small gifts and memorables from our journey. After the project finishes (at 5PM CST tonight), we will create a survey where you can give us your address.

And...we have included a small sample of the work we've been doing.
-  The video file is from a group exercise we conducted during our workshop on Day 4.

Again, many thanks for everything! We can't wait to share our wonderful stories with you.
