Le Salon des Refusés #2

January 31st – 2018. Cafe Koi. Le Salon des Refusé returns for its 2nd evening of ridiculous material. Our first evening presented AFTER US THE SAVAGE GOD in 2016. This time out we present WAITING FOR GORDO by Mike Czuba. (Cast to be finalized – but rumour has it the band is getting back together.)

Post

* A play, based on a screenplay by Mike Czuba, Andrew Kenneth Martin and Gordon Currie, based ever-so losely on another play by some other dude and influenced by a single epidsode of the Six-Million Dollar Man. In no way does the content of this play infringe on the copywright of any other plays with similar titles. Any similarites to any other persons or characters alive or dead is 100% coincidental and should be treated as such. If you have to ask if something is real… it already is.

Monkeys on Late Night.

On November 29th, the Dancing Monkey crew was invited to present their performance video GOOD FORTUNE DRINKS TOO MUCH at LATE NIGHT AT THE PLAZA.

We felt very comfortable in their special brand of madness.
We also discovered that monkeys fit quite snuggly on questionable chesterfields.

New – *PAGE ONE – REPRISE

The latest instalment of *PAGE ONE:  Actor Tristan D. Lalla reading p.39 of REPRISE by Mike Czuba.

**Page One is a video initiative by Dancing Monkey Laboratories to connect with actors, dancers, designers, and anyone else really, to read the first page of one of Mike Czuba’s plays (*or – a page from anywhere in the text, or the last page, or a collection of sections, eventually even the screenplays – it’s flexible – and contains many an ‘ish’ as is suggested by Nocturology‘s non-existent, yes strongly suggested, theatrical guidelines.)

NOBODY SAY ANYTHING – LIVE.

Dancing Monkey’s Nathaniel Schmidt is about present his latest musical endeavour called Nobody Say Anything. The group is comprised of Nathaniel with Chris Dadge, Mark, Limacher, and Nate Waters. They play music like you’ve maybe never heard but maybe you have – but not from them.

Thanks to a Small Experiments Grant from CADA (Calgary Arts Development), they were able to put this show together and experiment with new sounds and new ways discovering sounds. It would be great if you could join them at this live concert event in fulfillment of the the grant. There will be beer and a few other special surprises.

June 29th, Festival Hall, 1215 10 Ave SE, Calgary, Alberta. Doors open at 7pm.
