Veiled Revue
By Amber Daniels and Becky Hill

Veiled ciphers through historic vaudeville repertoire extracting inspiration to create an abstract dance theater work. In an era of #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, American territory borders, a global pandemic, a monumental presidential election and further investigations of social norms, we are researchers with the knowledge that the present is affected by our past. Using vignettes, audiences will simultaneously experience both the despair that haunted the entertainment industry of the vaudeville era, as well as the joy. We will manipulate how vaudeville was viewed then versus the transformation of what it could be today. The piece will be performed in “armor,” a costume that covers the body entirely to erase gender, sexuality, race and class. It is our hope through this investigation, we will have audiences question, react and be moved to action.

I AM IN A BASEMENT
By Tristan Koepke

Reflecting on creative practices on pause, Tristan builds small accumulations that give way to lacy patterns of ritual that unfold and rupture into chaotic, effervescent celebrations of catharsis and release. Sinewy threads of movement repeat and intervene in a contemplation exertion, endurance and destruction.

A Cool Yule: A Swinging Holiday Cabaret

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.
