The festivities will begin on November 9th at Furman + Keil Architect’s new space, come and be one of the first to experience “The Flea and the Acrobat” plus some of Ernesto’s showstoppers, accompanied by our lovely sponsors Topo Chico, the always delicious Hendrick’s Gin & our one and only Pennyback Tonics ❤

Can’t wait to show you what we’ve been preparing for you, let the most exciting season in Austin Arts begin!

Cheers!

You’re The Worst

reviews, Uncategorized

Listen, I know I’m like a year late with this comment, but for all of you out there that, like me don’t have cable and recur to the glorious HULU as an entertainment provider, the 3rd (1 yr old :/ ) season for one of my favorite TV Shows “You’re The Worst” just dropped (Or I just saw) and it brought me joy, laughter, a bit of anxiety and a revelation on an important matter: “Leg Washing”.

“Leg Washing” you say? YES, that’s what I just said.

On one of the episodes, the leading lady confesses to not regularly washing her legs. The conversation went like this:

“You don’t wash your legs,” asks Jimmy incredulously. “You take showers and you don’t wash your legs?!”

Gretchen responds: “No way, what am I? A sucker? … What am I going to do, like, bend down and wash my legs? Who has the time?”

This conversation was not only funny ’cause it is; but it was extra funny to me since I’ve had a similar conversation with my husband. LOL To Gretchen’s eloquent response I must add the irrefutable fact: “The legs wash themselves” HAHAHAHA. My husband, like Jimmy, remained incredulous as well.

So now I ask you: Is this normal? Like, do you do it too? You do, right? Because I thought it was a perfectly common practice until that conversation in my household hahaha and seeing it on TV made me feel better for sure. Now I want you to chime in and confirm. It is normal not to scrub your legs? It is! Right?

 

Forklift Danceworks

Yesterday I had a dream-like experience at the Bartholomew Pool called “My Park, My Pool, My City“, here in Austin, Tx. I’ve heard about the outstanding/unusual pieces by Forklift Danceworks but unfortunately, I’ve never seen it in action until yesterday. MIND BLOWN!

They choreograph, integrate, and create an experience that gave me chills, and made me shear a tear or two; the way they expose the everyday art, the common hero, it’s so simple and gorgeous!

Music by our local genius, Graham Reynolds, choreography by Allison Orr & Krissie Marty, performances by the staff at Austin’s Parks & Recreation (PARD)/ Aquatics Program and the community.

Let this fun piece connect you to your community, inner child and humanity in general, your soul would truly appreciate it!

There are a few tickets left here, make sure you get them!
