We're making a new dance.


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: 



Reaaaaaach for it: Mad King Thomas' quest for immortality

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

One King to Rule Them All: My experiments continue

Last time on the MKT Files, we sent in a bunch of photographs.  

Here we go.


Mad King Thomas had our first post-mortem face-to-face meeting!  Google Hangouts has been surprisingly effective, but there's nothing like actual face time.  
We went to Hollywood, Joshua Tree National Park, Venice Beach, and the Salton Sea (the new setting for Welcome to the Shattering World). 
Well, one of us was glamorous, anyway.

Rehearsal report: a question.

Monica assigned us, about a month ago, something she had done in her Power, Privilege and Oppression class (What a class title!)
The task, as summarized by me: Find your resistance. Who, if they walked into your life tomorrow, would you struggle to serve to the best of your abilities, more or less because of groundless (and perhaps unintentional) bias on your own part? Is there a group of people who you just don't react well to? What three steps can you take to reduce your resistance to that group?

This may mean nothing to you, but I will share it anyway.

We're back in rehearsal, you guys. Monica's the boss! When we were planning out this weird year of experimental long-distance-choreography, we thought: we'll let the person who has the biggest life change lead rehearsals! They'll be able to make it suit them!

It turns out that big life changes are a little hard to recover from. We started a month late, but we're here and in action (right in the middle of my own Big Life Change).

Announcing the plan for the rest of our lives

FIrst let me say this: Rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated. Not only are we NOT dying, we are planning all kinds of excellent activities during our time apart. 

In case you haven't heard the news:

Monica is moving to Boston to learn about dance/movement therapy; I'm moving to LA to learn about palm trees and radical pedestrianism; Theresa is moving to South Minneapolis to learn about pond ownership.  

House shows.

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts..."
-Some guy
We're doing a show in houses. It's a show about life, family, home, dying, and all the other things. It's not about blond hair or sparkles, except when it occasionally is.
