It’s First Friday time again. Yay! Right? Actually, boo (well, kind of). Ever since the monthly shebang caught on with the mainstream (example no. 1: emo kids from Mesa’s Dobson High School; example no. 2: Mercedes Benz-driving Scottsdale folks of all ages), it’s been nearly impossible to scope out the visual art, which is one of those things that’s best enjoyed in quiet solitude. However, crazy crowds can and usually do add to the energy of a performing-arts show. That’s why we’re happy to see more events such as Kokoon, in which students at ASU’s Herberger College of Dance team up with students and faculty from Taliesin West to present an evening of progressive dance.
