PURE Theatre – Underneath the Lintel – December 9-23rd

by Glen Berger
December 9–23
Directed by Sharon Graci*


Underneath the Lintel tells the gripping story of an eccentric librarian who discovers a weather-beaten book in the overnight return box—113 years overdue. Sparked by a message left in its margins, he, in spite of the fact that he never left his native town of Hoofddorp, embarks on a magical quest that takes him around the world and 2,000 years into the past. With astonishing twists and turns, Underneath the Lintel draws us into an unforgettable odyssey.

Featuring PURE Co-founder Rodney Lee Rogers*
* PURE Core Ensemble

PURE Theatre is located at 477 King Street, Charleston, SC.

Abridged Minutes: November, 2016 Safety & Security minutes

Abridged Minutes: November, 2016 Safety & Security minutes

The following is an abridged summary of the minutes from the November 2, 2016 Safety & Security meeting. A complete copy of the minutes is available in the archives section of the SIPOA website at

Committee Discussion Topics:
• Due to the recovery from hurricane Matthew a formal meeting was not held in October, 2016.
• 15 mph speed limits: Although Dennis will recommend to the Board eliminating these signs and possibly replacing them with information signs (sharp curve, driveway ahead, etc.), these speed limits currently remain in effect until changes, if any, are actually approved and implemented.

SIPOA Security Report: Since no formal Safety & Security meeting was held in October, the incident reports and citations for both September and October are included in full November report.

-September Citations:
 34 speeding violations
 4 stop sign violations
 3 no pass displayed violations
 2 no drivers license violations
 1 no registration
 8 parking violations
 1 commercial access violation
 1 unauthorized vehicle violation
-October Citations:
 17 speeding violations
 5 stop sign violations
 1 leaving the scene
 1 passing unlawfully
 1 reckless driving
 4 no pass displayed
 4 no drivers licenses violations
 4 no registration violations
 2 parking violations
 1 trailer violation

All appeals were reviewed and/or heard and decisions were made based on the facts and merits of each case.

Motion: Following an appeal regarding a trash dumping issue, and much discussion by the Committee, Dennis will recommend to the SIPOA Board a clarification of the definition of “contractors” to exempt property management companies from that definition. This will give them authority to dispose of trash at the SIPOA facility on behalf of property owners, since the property owners they represent have already paid SIPOA fees for this service.

Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art – October 21st-December 10th

artPeter Eudenbach: This is Not an Object

Peter Eudenbach: This is Not an Object is on view at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art from October 21 – December 10, 2016.

This is Not an Object consists of objects that blur the line boundary between the functional and the farcical, as Eudenbach examines the relationship between concept and reality. Such an exploration can be seen in the artist’s Coffee Table, 2004, which is an actual coffee table that brews coffee. Other works, such as Tours de Revolution, 2007, a Ferris wheel constructed out of models of the Eiffel Tower, explore the idea of using readymade objects as works of art usually pushed to absurd levels. The exhibition’s title, This is Not an Object refers to the iconic painting The Treachery of Images, 1928-29 by surrealist Renee Magritte, in which a depiction of a pipe is accompanied by the caption “Ceci n’est pas uno pipe’ [“This is not a pipe”]. With this connection, Eudenbach’s show asks the question: “How is an object supposed to function?”
