Thank you for your reply! Yes, I was hoping you might participate, but I
imagine you are
If you are interested, then one idea is that you might lead a "worknet"
at our Minciu Sodas laboratory. That would include a discussion group
and wiki pages. We would organize this around your deepest value in life
and hold you accountable to keep clarifying that and openly investigate
questions that you want to answer (such as "What is more important,
essence or existence?" which you raised earlier.) Also, activity would
take place openly in the Public Domain except where content explicitly
notes otherwise. I would work as an organizer to assemble people, to
support your endeavors - what you want to achieve, and to look for
business opportunities that we might pursue. I would hope for your
interest in the long term but otherwise you would participate as you are
I am happy to set up this arrangement with others who might be
interested and are active at our Minciu Sodas lab's groups http://www.ms. lt
It would be great to have a "worknet" related to art,
but especially led by someone active at ActALIVE. I share also with our
lab's Holistic Helping group which Janet leads.
Aside from a "worknet", if that is too much commitment, we could set up
some wiki pages for information that you would like to share.
It's great to hear from you!

RE: [actalive] Thank you, Dennis Kimambo, for bridging with us!
Sounds very interesting, I couldn't be on line on sunday because I was
in a cremature, but I would like to know to Algirdas and his art works.
The theme of the chat is very similar and related with the theme I
proposed to create a MS lab when I was a member. I have some info
maybe can be useful.
Dennis, I would like to keep your dates because I know some theatre
companies in Europe very interesting, as well as I'm personally involved
in one teather iniciative related to the "four wall" (going beyond the
four wall) and anti-happenings perfomances, where the target is the
public create and participate in the theater play, like an active part,
so maybe that might be interesting in yours projects.

I am very grateful to Dennis Kimambo for engaging us today by Skype. We
had gathered at the Europos Parkas sculpture garden to pursue sculptor
Algirdas Zokaitis's question, How can Lithuanian artists without money
show their work in other countries? Dennis rose to the challenge and
talked about his own experiences as an actor, writer, director,
organizer and activist. We were interested to learn how he integrated
his community work, as
a volunteer, and his professional work. Dennis
talked about the immediate impact that community theater had for the
audience to discuss real life situations regarding HIV/AIDS and reflect
publicly, what to do? how might we behave? how do we think? I have not
seen it but I imagine it is quite impactful. We managed to speak by
Skype and also see some pictures. Maybe someday we can engage each
other by video and see such community theater and perhaps learn and
share and do likewise. I was myself intrigued to realize that although
Dennis support himself through his professional theater work, but his
travels are possible through his community theater work. We discussed
amongst ourselves in Lithuanian, and I noted that when a person is
invited for their community work, then it is like inviting the people in
their community as well, so it is very good for networking. And that
Algirdas's activity with the children in the neighborhood, the
classes he leads free-of-charge, might lead to his travel. Algirdas
sang two songs that he wrote and was very encouraged by Dennis's
reaction. We were also provoked by the idea that we, too, might travel
some day to Kenya and participate in community theater. I also noted
that when we share energy with Dennis and give energy then surely that
energy helps him give energy to those around him and that is a great joy
for us. Dennis, thank you for reaching us and I appreciate your
efforts! Is there a group in the European Union who we could send a
small honorarium to in thanks for your work? Please let me know, we
will gladly do so. Thank you!
Dennis also spoke about the great importance of ActALIVE in sharing
knowledge of opportunities and making international connections that
open up the possibility of travel. I am also learning that such a voice
from far away can have a great impact on our thinking twice about what
