    Whatever the One Acts are to local audiences, the one rule of the student-led theater production is there are no rules, and what happens each night depends on the mood of the actors and the alignment of the stars.

Co-curators of “Living as Form (The Nomadic Version)” are Antioch visual arts professor Sara Black, center, and Antioch artists in residence Jillian Soto, left, and Anthony Romero, right, who recently worked on the exhibition at the Herndon.

    For example, Women on Waves, a ship that performs medical abortions outside of the territorial waters of countries where it is illegal, or Project Row Houses, a low-income housing development in Houston where the houses are sometimes canvases for artistic expression.
