Le Salon des Refusés #3

Dancing Monkey is pleased to present the third installment of Le Salon des Refusés, a staged reading of ridiculous plays and screenplays by Mike Czuba. This time out we present SHANIQUA and the SPACE QUEEN. A lost gem from the early 2000’s and missed opportunity for production companies everywhere!! But it’s not too late as no script ever truly dies.

January 30th, 2019 – 8pm at KOI – 1011, 1st Street, SW, Calgary.

Performed by the Dancing Monkey Players: Michelle Brandenburg, Lonni Olson, Constantine X. Anastasakis, Filsan Dualeh, Wil Knoll and Melissa Tuplin (Contracts still in negotiations).

The event is FREE! Bring your thirst, have a little food, and dig in those couches, sofas or chesterfields for some loose change – We’ll be passing the hat at the end.

Images from previous Salons can be found HERE and HERE.

‘LIKE TOM CRUISE LOVES RUNNING’

Like Tom Cruise Loves Running
A New One-Act play by Mike Czuba
czuba.mike@gmail.com
© 2018

An immediate, physical, Meta-Theatrical, one-act play, with 3 people, 3 chairs, much running and a struggle to answer the question: “How do you love?”

Three people, actors, characters meet in a space that looks similar to a theatre stage. They immediately try to show/prove how much they love. Grand statements are made, running on the spot, arguing, debates, agreements and declarations power this play from start to stop with a rhythm and pace that will leave everyone out of breath.

Characters:
Parker
Charlie
Morgan

**All Characters are described as gender/age neutral (They/Them). Although they might lean traditionally one way or another, directors can do what they wish.

**If running is not possible, the “running on the spot” can be replaced with any physical activity/gesture depending on ability of the actor.

Solo Projects.

In the time honoured, Rock&Roll tradition ( See Kiss ), The Monkeys are going to spend a little time on some solo gigs: various theatre, dance and music things, teaching – across the freakin’ country, community building and more schoolin’.

Monkey works will arrive, here and there, as art-things are hard to stop doing, but nothing full-on Dancing Monkey as we looks for some funding to take our dance-moves to new places; where we can continue to challenge ourselves creatively, and evolve artistically.
