We're on a Boat!

Tue., June 25, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Attack Theatre has been putting on adventurous, genre-bending dance performances since 1995 — this year's The Rube Goldberg Variations, for example, adopted the concept of the titular machines and paired them with Bach. To celebrate another winning season and to look forward to its next, the company is hosting Attack Theatre: We're On A Boat!, a cruise on the three rivers featuring light food, a cash bar, and plenty of nautical puns (hull of a good time, ferrytale ending, etc.). Submit your own boat pun when buying your ticket online for a chance to win an all-access pass to Attack's forthcoming 25th season.

Now Mohamed, who serves as executive director of the center, will be honored with the 2019 New Person of the Year Award by the Thomas Merton Center, which works to create a more peaceful and just world by addressing war, poverty, racism, classism, economic and environmental justice, and human rights. The award ceremony will take place at the National Association of Letter Carriers Hall.

Embodying Queerness

Wed., June 26, 7 p.m.
Performance artist Moriah Ella Mason will present Embodying Queerness, a new dance theater piece at The Space Upstairs. Mason will reflect on queer and Jewish identity in the diaspora through an open process workshop, no formal dance or movement experience necessary. The event will examine texts on queerness and how people experience queerness in their bodies and includes meditative and collaborative movement explorations. Those interested are encouraged to wear loose, comfortable clothes and bring water and a notebook.
