This Weekend (Load of Fun is where it's at!)


The 50 Greatest Ladies & Gentleman @ The LOF/t
The Missoula Oblongata presents their fourth full-scale touring production, The 50 Greatest Ladies and Gentlemen. As always, the company has created their own homemade lighting system—run from the stage by the performers, as well as an interactive set made of junk, and an original score played live by the composers-turned-actors.
The 50 Greatest Ladies and Gentlemen takes place just after the Treaty of Versailles. A veteran who is genetically predisposed to cowardice searches for his brother from whom he’s received a mysterious letter. When the veteran comes upon the town from whence the letter came, he finds that his brother (and the rest of the town) have been caught in a dance mania—a hysterical mass tarantism. With no one else around, the veteran befriends a spider—likely the one who is responsible for the tarantism, and together, they go up against the town doctor who believes that breakfast (and everything ordinary, for that matter) is beneath love.

In The Jungle & more @ The LOF/t
Los Solos will be presenting the Baltimore premiere of Stephanie Barber’s new performance piece in the jungle which premiered in May 2009 at The Stone in NYC.
57 minutes, digital video, live performance, lecture and music

Part musical, part poetic lecture, part video transpiration soaked performance, in the jungle, playfully and sorrowfully tells the tale of an unreliable narrator in a self imposed exile. Given a grant to study the equivalent of animal cries and whines in jungle flora our heroine has lived for 1, 612 days deep in an unnamed jungle.
