WOF is BACK! Saturday November 1st, we return for a show that has become a sort of tradition for us. It is the day after All Hallow's Eve. It is known to some as All Saint's Day, and is right in the middle of celebrations of The Day of The Dead aka Dia De Los Muertos.
This is a time for feasting, festivity, and candy induced hangovers. It is also a time for remembrance, reverence, and reflection. In that vein, we invite those Floorists who come to the stage to share with us the essence of their chosen form of expression. Whether it is being used to honor the departed, haunt our waking hours and fitful sleep, or to simply entertain; bring the bare bones of what you do.
Nothing fancy or complicated or over the top. Only the simple yet essential marrow of your artform to be savored by the ravenous eyes, ears, and hearts of the audience.
Those of you who have been with us for some time, think of this show as being a combination of our Back To Basics Theme and our usual Day Of The Dead celebration.
So come share a story of a loved one who has passed on. Sing an acapella dirge. Dance to the silent clock of time ticking down the hours until all of us return to the dust. Whatever it is you do, bring us only the polished ribs and spine of it. Only the tendons and sinew. Only the gleaming grinning skull of it. Then get out on The Floor and bring life to Them Bones!
Your vertebrate Host and Ringmaster
