Voices From the Future
Presented by Wanderlust
At Club Cafe, Boston
This is my plug for a show that many of my friends and two of our favorite dance companies are contributing to, Luminarium and Paradise Lost. All proceeds go to BAGLY, the Boston Alliance of Gay and Lesbian Youth. I highly recommend you read the event description. If you have a few hours and you want to support queer rights, come on out.

Dancer /musician collaborations are one of my favorite things, and if jazz and tap are your cup of tea, definitely go check this out. From the site: Somethig Else!!! is a new evening length collaboration between tap dance company Subject:Matter and the Factory Quartet. The work will deal with music by jazz legends like Ornette Coleman and Thelonious Monk as well as original compositions by the dancers and the band. The show's format will be malleable to give the artists the opportunity to reimagine the show each night. This means that no two performances will be the same and this will be a truly unique performance experience.
