Open Casa: Virtual Exhibition: Christine Nguyen, Installation Artist
December 1, 2020 - February 7, 2021

Experience our virtual exhibition by installation artist Christine Nguyen!

Christine Nguyen’s work draws upon the imagery of nature, the sciences, and the cosmos but it is not limited to a conventional reading of these realms. It imagines that the depths of the ocean reach into outer space, that through an organic prism, vision can fluctuate between the micro- and macroscopic.

Chance Theater Cyber Chats - Online
Friday, January 29, 2021
8 pm

Join Chance Theater for our next CHANCE CYBER CHAT. The perfect chance to take a virtual theater trip together by watching performances online and then coming together on a video conference call to share experiences. Free Event

Friday, January 29th Cyber Chat - 'Every Brilliant Thing'
You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

NOTE: This show contains adult themes.

Watch the show on your own and then join us for the Chance Cyber Chat.

Online - Presented by Chance Theater in Anaheim

* Please note: We are not watching the shows together as part of our Chance Cyber Chat. You will need to watch the performance online beforehand. For more information and to sign up, visit
