OUT OF THE BLACK BOX THINKING >>>

See dance as you've never seen it before - trouncing through a bookstore, a wine bar and a Thai restaurant! Tonight at King's Books, the BareFoot Collective will take to the shelves and deliver a unique performance in a unique venue that is just about the opposite of a formal theatre in every way.  

Tonight's performance will be tBFC's first of several modern dance performances out of the black box. The group aims to take dance into public spaces around Tacoma. So if you think you're safe from fancy footwork at the library or when you're dining upon a tasty curry at Indochine - think again!

The road shows will be 30 to 40 minutes long and will incorporate modern dance techniques from improv, contemporary styles, dance theater, butoh-inspired and body percussion.

"The BareFoot Collective has been creating opportunities for dance in Tacoma since 2008. We are thrilled to partner with local businesses this fall and bring dance to the people where they are. Tacomans will not have to go to the theater and buy a ticket to see dance this November - the BareFoot Collective is steppin' out!" says co-director Katie Stricker via the event's press release.

Other performances include: 7 p.m. Nov. 8 and 15 at Indochine, 7 p.m. Nov. 14 at The Mix, 9:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at Cork Wine Bar and 3 p.m. Nov. 17 at Tacoma Public Library's Main Branch downtown.

Indochine will be visited twice because it's delicious.

All performances are free.

Oh, King's Books will not be held responsible for any airborne books and beverages high-kicked ceremoniously from your hand.

KING'S BOOK, BAREFOOT COLLECTIVE, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 7, 6 P.M., FREE, 218 SAINT HELENS AVE., TACOMA, 253.272.8801
