Calamity Co Dance in collaboration with Fresh Peach Dance will present Potluck: We’ll bring the dance, you bring the salad: a dance-centric modern & pop variety show of works in various stages of progress by dancers, actors, musicians, comedians, film makers, with a focus on the multi-talented and collaborative efforts between forms. All audience members are invited to be part of our exchange as we dig into the economics of access around movement-based theater. Audience members will engage in direct conversation and creative dialogue surrounding the questions: “How is dance meaningful? What does it cost and what is it worth?” Before and after the performance, local artists and anybody else who wishes to share will come together to form a marketplace for attendees to trade ideas and goods.

The iatitheater_ presents “Brown Buffalo”
Oscar “Zeta” Acosta, a prominent figure in Chicano Letters, died mysteriously in Mexico in 1974 at the age of 39.  His body was never found.  In this two act play the self-proclaimed “Brown Buffalo” is expelled from the Inframundo (underworld) by Native elders for being “too loud and profane.”  They command him to return to the world of the living in a quest to “find his body.”  In his search he interacts with the people he was closest to including ex-wife Sandy, son Daniel, and best friend/chief antagonist Raoul Duke who described Acosta as a “Samoan Attorney” in the book and movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
