Corn Husks
Choreographed by Gunild Pak the essence of this work stems from the bonds between women and nature, earth and light, seasons and submission, sound and silence. The sounds of paper wrinkling and swaying becomes part of the score. Paper is torn and wrapped around bodies, thrown into the air and used like sand in the sand paintings as in native cultures.

Foibles of Faith or The Human Side of Holy Worship
Choreographed by Elizabeth A. Miklavcic this work is an examination of two bizarre church stories that represent universal strange worship experiences. The female role represents the abuse or manipulation of symbolic icons.

You're Mean to Me
Talented vocalist Kenneth Ezell Bass sings a torch song to the audience. Literally holding a torch, of sorts.

Glimpse at the Goober in your Galoshes
Co-created by Christopher Murry Ivins and Elizabeth A. Miklavcic this work is a challenging odyssey into a couples' "day in a life" of kitsch and otherwise fragmented surreal moments tied together with movement strings.

Guest choreographer Julie Preston set this beautifully danced solo on Christopher Murry Ivins.

Nuclear Ovulation
Created by Christopher Murry Ivins this work is just strange!

Keepin' Out of Mischief
Kenneth Ezell Bass returns to sing the audience a second torch song.

Company Tasks in Clapping Stacks
Concert Finale - Choreographed by Gunild Pak this high energy dance is a statement about the pace of keeping an independent performance company going and the hoops company members must jump through to perform.
