K.J. Holmes, dance artist and songstress, will be construing the history of the moment in an improvised solo using the verticality of the unconscious as ground to stand on. “When it comes to excavated ground, dreams have no limits.” Gaston Bachelard
In BEWARE THE SCORE!, Yvonne Meier whips Clarinda Mac Low into a frenzy, manipulating and challenging her with impossible improvisational scores. With great humor, intelligence, and sheer will power, the games begin. If you missed their previous bright conversation at Roulette in February, here’s your second chance. clarindamaclow.com

Theatre creators Mayu Iwasaki (of Tokyo), Maridee Slater (of Colorado), & Sonia Villani (of Rome), are investigating this moment, right now, with you. They bring to you their next encounter: L’APELL DU VIDE or Call of the Void. Are you the love of my life?…Even just for this moment.
Jacklyn Collier first heard ‘The Special Two’ by Missy Higgins summer of 2005, and was immediately drawn to the song’s soulful exploration of a woman’s infidelity. She worked on the piece for a project in a graduate school movement class…and, then it exploded. Special thanks toJon Sprik and Dave Bobb for coming on board.
HAVE NO FEAR. Send out smoke signals. Send out as the weather allows. In this season finale,Maja Rajenovich will move to the shadow dancer of the great message: We love you. I share with you this. majarajenovich.com
