Wolf Pack Theatre Company, Online

Calling all SINGERS! 🙂 Open to everyone, location not important!

On Wednesday, November 25th #TeamWolfPack will be hosting a holiday Zoom Cabaret benefitting #CommunityCrisisServices 50th Anniversary Celebration!

You will need to provide your own music (play an instrument, karaoke tracks, etc.) or simply go acapella, but here’s the catch…
All songs must be holiday oriented, be in the public domain or you must have written permission from a composer/writer for anything not in the public domain. In the comments I will provide a link/list of public domain holiday songs.

Please note that the Cabaret will be taped, and may be posted on multiple social media sights. This is a purely volunteer opportunity benefitting #homelessness, #domesticviolenceprevention and #suicideprevention efforts through CCSI.

Responsive Wild
Choreography by Krissy Harris

Responsive Wild considers and questions notions of womanhood and femininity. Inspired by family history, rock and roll, and physics concepts, Harris investigates these ideas through highly physical, bold and expansive movement. The work is in conversation with feminist theories and reveals a complex interrelationship of the inside/outside body and its potential for energetic expression.

Ghost Bride
Choreography by Rose Xinran Qi

Ghost Bride is based on the Asian tradition of a ghost marriage, when a man dies early in life and his family recruits a young woman to marry him in spirit. Through a combination of movements derived from postmodern dance and classical Chinese dance, this work conveys a story of revolution for women’s rights through time and place. Qi evokes the Chinese feminine form Shenyun (bearing) through breath control in order to communicate the internal emotion behind specific movements.
