For some reason the gabled dry stone folly that was completed in California last year has always been referred to as a 'greenhouse' structure. We were always looking for a better name for it. On Saturday night there was a special inaugural performance held within this new walled space. Amanda Stinson along with Elika Freeman and Lia Miyamura,  who are members of a dance group called Toniq Vivant, put on a vibrant blessing dance performed to the haunting beat of specially selected global tribal music debuted with fire. It was magical.  Afterwards the structure came to be referred to as the Pyro-mid.
