DaNCEBUMS opens each evening with their riotous approach to dance in Press Kit. Next, April Sellers Dance Collective recreates their work The Animal Corridor with a new cast member. Alternating performances with ASDC, Samantha Johns and Nona Invie create an ode. Finally, Detroit-based Kristi Faulkner Dance closes out every night (and their tour to Minneapolis via the GRUNT network) with Four Letter Word.

Based On / A True Story: Two New Plays Presented by Raw Sugar and Theatre Corrobora 

Based On / A True Story: Two New Plays presented by Raw Sugar and Theatre Corrobora

This two play-event explores the personal, real-life stories of three local female artists. The narratives are connected by a common thread: What does it mean to think you know the life path you are on?

Act One: Raw Sugar presents FADEAWAY GIRL, written and performed by Rachel Petrie

FADEAWAY GIRL is the true story of playwright/performer Rachel Petrie’s experience coming to terms with a bipolar disorder diagnosis. From her very first manic episode in 2004 to present day, Rachel shares her personal stories of derailment, discovery, reinvention, and joy.

Act Two: Theatre Corrobora presents THE CRITIC AND THE DRAMA QUEEN, written by Hailey Colwell. Performed by Aidan Jhane Gallivan and Hailey Colwell

THE CRITIC AND THE DRAMA QUEEN was inspired by the story of real-life friends and co-producers Aidan Jhane Gallivan and Hailey Colwell, a local actor and writer, respectively. The play follows the evolution of a friendship and the scary places it can go when artistic pride gets in the way.

Friday, November 17 — 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, November 18, — 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Seconds

Presented by BRKFST Dance Company 

In Breakin', the term "biting" describes one person taking another's stylistically unique move and incorporating it into their own arsenal of movement as if they created it. In many ways this artful theft, more than winning, is the high stakes in a breakin’ battle. Seconds explores how individuality and innovation are both commodified and censored in consumer culture. Dancers grapple with external and internal governing forces that compel conformity, rendering bodies disposable and replaced. Through a blend of Breaking, martial art and contemporary dance vernaculars, BRKFST company members tease out the multiple metaphors embedded in Seconds, interacting with timing, repetition and circumstance, while striving to discover and empower their covetable identities. Sound design is in collaboration with Twin Cities sound artists Katrah Quey and Breakaway.

Dates / Times

Thursday, November 30 — 7:30 p.m.
Friday, December 1 — 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, December 2 — 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, December 3 — 2:00 p.m.
