The Rendezvous Presents:

Tricking Power into Performing Acts of Love

June 5th at 6:00 pm


The Jewelbox Theater





A little magic, a little vaudeville, a few laughs, real conversation, insights, some music.…Take your mind out for spin and Dig Trickster!
Dr. Shepherd Siegel, a descendant of oil barons and bootleggers, grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the midst of that whole utopian sixties thing. He was a rock and jazz musician, then educator. Siegel has over thirty publications in the education field and has been recognized for many achievements, including but not limited to awards from Foreword Reviews and from the Colorado Independent Publishers Association for his first book on tricksters, “Disruptive Play: The Trickster in Politics and Culture.”
“Disruptive Play” spread its message of playfulness and progressive change. Its essential follow-up is 2022’s “Tricking Power into Performing Acts of Love: How Tricksters through History have Changed the World.” It explores the Trickster archetype in African American culture; the female trickster; slapstick, time travel, and what vision trickster holds for us today.
Shepherd works hard to play with you, make you laugh, make you wonder. He’s all about being with groups of people large and small, sussing out the energy, finding the funny bone, and providing some of the beat to get the group rhythm to swing.
