Spring is all springlike and stuff

Even though the weather still blows, other energetic forces indicate that it is indeed spring in ticktockland. A slew of shows, new opportunities, and… new apparatus!

Miguel is hard at work already on all the new stuff for the June show, which features no traditional aerial apparatus at all. How can that be, you ask? Well come out to FRED later on this summer and you will see.

OK. We have a bunch more news and updates, too…

First of all, this was fun (photos by Natalya Pemberton):

Many thanks to the brilliant Zoe Keating. <;3

Here's a great still from that show by Stuart Updegrave:

And Moisture Festival was pretty much the highlight of our year, as usual. Not many pics have surfaced yet but here is a pretty portrait that the venerable John Cornicello took of the Girl with the Umbrella:

I’ll be performing that piece later this month at Teatro ZinZanni’s late night cabaret, Mezzo Lunatico. <;<;—clicky for tix! It will be a VERY fun show.

What else…?

Oh!

Keep an eye out for party info– we are planning a ticktock fundraising party for the new show, and you know how much fun we are at parties! In the meantime, you can always donate to us via Shunpike. We have to pay poor Miguel somehow…

Just click here:

Online donation system by ClickandPledge

$25 buys a carabiner, $30 buys us 20 feet of steel, $100 pays a dancer stipend for one performance, $150 buys a used clawfoot bathtub… I’ll just stop there. 🙂

We are also putting together a wishlist, which we will post and send ’round via e-mail, so make sure you’re either subscribed here or send an email to dropaline@ticktockdance.com with “send me e-mail!” in the subject line.

Oh Oh! Yes! Guess who is a temporary ticktocker for the SEAF show??? The incredibly beautiful Kari Podgorski! She is killer! The show is going to be very different than anything the Festival has attempted thus far, and we are just about beside ourselves with excitement. Pencil in May 20&21 at Fremont Studios. See you then…

Hey, we love you folks.

this winter has to end sometime…

I mean, doesn’t it?!?!? Sheesh.

We are gearing up for a characteristically chaotic spring and summer and would love to see your faces TOMORROW night at Art Attack!, the Georgetown Art Walk, in Shelly’s loft, 4810 Airport Way S.

We will be quite literally swinging from the rafters on cloud swing, trapeze, rope, and hoop– all for your general wonderment!

Come on down and we’ll see you there!

Also, we would love to see you over at the Triple Door March 24-26 for Viva Oz Vegas, starring ticktock as the Lollipop Guild, Jill and Liza as the Flying Monkeys, and Bridget as the Scarecrow!  We have had so much fun ticktocking it up with these campy characters and are pretty excited about the results.  It’s always a fun night out at the Triple Door– the food from Wild Ginger is so delish!  Get the Mandarin Chicken– known amongst us performers as “candy crack chicken”.  I think Ben de la Creme is responsible for that…

In May, ticktock will be joined by our awesome friend and cohort, Jenn Elder, to grace the mainstage at Seattle Erotic Art Festival. More on that awesomeness as the show draws nearer.

And… drumroll please… we are slated to debut a new full-length work in June! Yes. It’s true. It’s happening. And you will hear about it.

So keep checking in…

Right now it’s back to work for us, see you all very soon!

Love from Above,

the trifecta
