12:30 pm Twelve Pianos
Half Moon Bay, California. Mauro Ffortissimo, an artist and musician, drags an old grand piano onto the bluffs near his home by the sea. He plays it every evening at sunset for the migrating whales passing just offshore. The internet catches on, the news cameras arrive, crowds swell to hundreds of people. And the city orders it to stop.
Location: Stryker Theatre
