This new work for dance and chamber ensemble examines the mystery and elusive magic of ruins. Ruins remind us of a past that could have been and a future that never took place, tantalizing us with dreams of escaping the irreversibility of time. Exploring the disharmonious relationship of human, historical and natural temporality, ruin gaze makes a powerful case for connection. Tickets are pay what you wish starting at $5.

Do you LOVE Valentine’s Day? Sticky sweet, lovestruck, SO cute and all googly-eyed mushiness? Or do you HATE Valentine’s Day? Sourpuss, eye-rolling, don’t-get-me-started-on-couples, can’t stand this capitalist holiday?

Whatever camp you belong to, THIS is the show for you! We will celebrate love and roast the holiday that brings it to us on a candy-red, heart-shaped platter. At your service are two of the funniest comics to hit the stage together: Melissa Douty and Mike Brown along with Maddox Pennington and Anthony Oakes. So, bring your boo, your bestie, your boss, your baby (18+ please) and let’s do this!

Joe’s Movement Emporium is located at 3309 Bunker Hill Road, Mount Rainier, MD.
