Since 1994 we have remained a small group of ordinary people who have volunteered their time and support to create small extraordinary acts.
We dig deep into our own pockets. We do our work to keep sane. We do it to be human.
The Ningo Guide, which is one of only 6 remaining independent magazines in China, has allowed us to republish many of their photographs and articles written for their Just Jinx column. We are indebted to Nick Jamura, Sylvie Metzer, Thane Holland and all of our friends in China. Colin Cameron documented much of our theatre history, and without him, we would have no visual memories.
Along the way, we have been assisted by incredible artists, teachers, parents, musicians, clients, social advocates, writers and friends. We are indebted to each of them.

We were gifted by an embracing ‘working audience’ of 30,000+ patrons of the Mode Theatre for many years. They taught us priceless lessons. We pay tribute to the many incredible artists and social activists who have died along the way and whose memorial celebrations we were honored to have at our theatre. Our deepest apologies for those we have omitted.
