Good luck choosing! Consider this mini-marathon a warm up for October, which has even more going on.

May it be in your budget and your schedule to be able to attend all of them.

OtB’s 12 Minutes Max, by the way, includes some dance! [verbatim from OtB’s website; sorry I don’t have pix, as I’m sure they’ll be most interesting!]

•  “Making her way all the way from Japan, Yuki Enomoto returns to 12MM with a solo dance piece dedicated to the late Seattle dancer Aaron Brisbane. (Dance)

•  “The gender-blending “boylesque” performance-art solo sensation Waxie Moon performs a theatrical striptease with rewritten Shakespeare, glamorous costumes and a little audience participation. (Dance Theater)”
