I don't play racquet ball...do you?

The Fringe Festival is upon us, and that means performance, performance, performance. So much is happening these next two weeks, and one of those things is happening in the Racquet Ball Court at The North Boulder Rec Center.

We (me, Chrissy, Johannah,  Peg, and Toby) have been working on this site specific dance project for the last 5 months and we would love for you to come and see what we have been doing all this time.

We will be performing on Saturday, Sept 20th at 6pm Sunday, Sept 21st at 4pm Friday, Sept 26 at 6pm Saturday, Sept 27 at 4pm.

and oh yeah...


Because of a generous grant from the Boulder Arts Commission, and because of an incredible and surprising donation from a long time student of mine, we are offering a free performance in this year's Fringe Festival.

So here's the deal: the space is small. I think we can fit 40 people in the audience comfortably...maybe 50. So if you want to come, and I hope you do, I would suggest reserving a ticket online through the Boulder Fringe website.

I just saw Laura Ann's rehearsal for Kitsch and her show is great. It is weird and funny and strange and unknown. All of the things I love about live performance.

So check out her show too at http://bit.ly/1wqROrn.

And there are so many other wonderful live performances happening in this hamlet of ours: The Awkward Art of Flying; Flying Dreams; Wanda and The Wave; Shadows in Bloom; I miss my MTV, to name just a few.

Go to http://bit.ly/YTI4v2 for a full listing of all the shows happening around town these next two weeks. Your dance mission for this week is TO WATCH a dance.

It can be live. It can be on youtube. It can be your two-year old dancing for you before she takes her bath.

The next day, you are going to take out that notebook you keep by your bed (the one with your headlamp next to it), and you are going to write down the dance you saw. Don't worry about "how to write a dance down" just do what feels right to you. Do it quickly, without thinking too much about it.

The day after that, you are going to do the dance that you saw live, or on youtube, or that your daughter did for you before her bath.


(oh yes, there is a then)

you are going to post the dance you just did SOMEWHERE.

Here: http://on.fb.me/1tndQsd or Here: http://bit.ly/1u1Ytu1 or somewhere else that feels good to you or nowhere at all.

The most important part of this mission is to watch a dance, let it sit for a bit, do that dance you saw, trusting you are doing it exactly as it should be done, be curious about it all.

See you in the Racquet Ball Court.
