May’s finish: Big n’ cheap.


Jeez Louis-Dreyfus: Gone are the days when the dance season slowed to a trickle after Memorial Day. Tons of goodness going on this weekend — GET OUT!

  • If you’re just hearing about Julia Rae Antonick’s call to arms and you’re worried you missed the boat, fret not: There’s time yet to get in on the action and see her show for free. Just email Jonathan Meyer at jonathan (at) khecari (dot) org and they’ll put you to work. If you’re not in the mood to perform, that’s fine too: Antonick’s show, PEND, is naturally open to the passive, plain public as well, running Friday and Saturday at 8:00pm at Overdier Hall on the third floor of the United Church of Rogers Park, 1454 West Morse (at Ashland).
  • ‘Tis that time of year perfect for Hamlin Park’s theater, when you can show up an hour early, grab insanely delicious grub and horchata at Tony’s Burrito Mex, and have a pre-show dinner outside watching the neighborhood leagues play ball. Thursday and Friday the Fieldhouse welcomes The Luna Troop, who will present their Letters and Love Songs at 7:30pm. Tickets are deliciously burrito-priced: $8 in advance [write danceyogamom (at) yahoo (dot) com] or $10 at the door.
  • As someone who gets off at Howard, I know all too well how Blue Liners love to complain about what a haul it is up to Rogers Park — lucky for them, Friday‘s got some action in The Wick. Silverspace is the place for Quicksilver Occasion Pieces, the triple treat of Thomas Helton on doublebass, Carol Genetti’s stunning vocals and Asimina Chremos’ consistently-face-meltingly-awesome dancing. Crazy talent, casual setting, pay-what-you-want and BYOB, it’s pretty much the ideal weekend kickoff. 8:00pm at 1474 North Milwaukee Avenue.
  • Rehearsals for Becoming Gods, another show I’ve already discussed here, is upon us at the good ol’ & gorgeous Epiphany Church Saturday and Sunday at 3:00pm. Rather than run down the details I’m just gonna post their beautiful flier:


To recap: Go support dance this weekend. It will cost you nothing, or close to it.
