UP NEXT: Unearthing the Family Jewels, June 18-21

Mad King Thomas presents Unearthing the Family Jewels

More Dance Musings - maybe for 9x22?

I have been thinking a lot about dance as a liberatory practice. I know this stems in part from my involvement with Don’t You Feel It Too?, a dance practice which touches on a lot of things, including personal liberation and social healing. (Summer sessions last week, in fact, and the next one is today! See you there?)

9x22 Ideas.

So, in about a week, Mad King Thomas will be showing a new piece, ASS BAD ASS, at 9x22.  It's, as yet, wholly unformed.  And here's what I'm bringing to the table: 

TRANIMALS

 
TRANSFORMATIONS

Fond Reminiscing

One of the most fun things about this show is that it is not only a chance to reminisce, but it’s actually an imperative part of the process. We’ve mentally gone through the last ten years of dances (and soon we’ll be going over the video footage as well!), imagining what will translate well (or strangely) onto new casts, what feels important not to miss, what we can excerpt, and how to represent the arc of that decade.

Reaaaaaach for it: Mad King Thomas' quest for immortality

So, our Kickstarter. We're close. Really close.
 

An Idle Suggestion

So, I’ve been making little sacrifices at the altar of the gods of kickstarter. I haven’t killed any lambs or anything, but I figure a few chocolate bars and copious entrepreneurial moisture (alternating sweat and tears) counts for a lot.

I’ve realized that while worshiping mystical crowdfunding has its own charm, it might be more effective to share my secret hope to the world, where actual people can help me achieve it.

We blew by Halfway There. By which I mean: you guys rock.

 
I was supposed to do a post about crossing the halfway mark in our Kickstarter yesterday, but here comes today and we are less then $1000 away from our goal.
 

YOU GUYS!!!

YOU GUYS!!!
