I'm going to go out on a limb here and say: "No." But I must confess I don't understand Michael D.'s post at all.

Dear Shimer friends,

I do hope this message finds you very well, despite the state of flux Shimer finds itself in at the moment.
This is a message I received from Goat Island, a theatre collective that has been together for many many years, quite inspiring, and that I thought you may be interested in (kind of Shimer locals, in many ways perhaps)...

I am not going to address the Shimer move issue directly just yet.

Anyhow, and however, this from Goat Island... (if anyone goes can you share how it went? :)

Goat Island Says :-

Below, please find information about our first video installation (!) and an upcoming workshop we will be teaching in Chicago. As always, we encourage you to share this with anyone you think might be interested.
