When Marley brings her new fiancé to her childhood home in small-town Texas, she finds herself stranded in the past. Hoping for a quick visit to her estranged father’s liquor store, she’s soon forced to deal with her football hero ex-boyfriend, a single mom insistent on a girls' night out, and the ghost of the town’s bear-wrestling pioneer founder.

Have you ever imagined a world whose laws of physics differ from our own? Welcome to the country's only recurring open-mic dedicated to speculative fiction: fantasy, sci-fi, and supernatural horror! Sign up for 5-7 minutes, and tell us about a place of which we’ve never dreamt.

April 11th, 2017: feature performer JOEY HAMBURGER

"Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today -- but the core of science fiction,its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all."

- Isaac Asimov, My Own View

Praise for The Not-So-Silent Planet

“It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that ultra-hip MPLS + STPL has an open mic night dedicated to…sci-fi, fantasy, tales of the supernatural and such. It also shouldn’t be a surprise that the quality of the material is higher than an H.G. Wells zeppelin.”

– Hitara, Secrets of the City

“…that was some delightfully trippy shit…mind-bendingly strange and fun…they burrow into your mind and keep you thinking about them long after they’re done.”

Matthew Everett, Single White Fringe Geek

“…definitely in the grand tradition of short-story writing in the genre…if you like story-telling events, don’t miss this one. Seriously. Just…don’t.”

“I love audio books. I love science fiction and fantasy stories. I love really good storytellers. I loved this show.”

“…helps you to see that there are many possibilities in this vast universe of ours.”

DaNCEBUMS DaNCE is a four week residency jam-packed with dance, music, and performance. Joined by keyboardist/vocalist Eric Mayson and percussionist Toby Ramaswamy, DaNCEBUMS is a band that makes dances. Each week focuses on a facet of DaNCEBUMness, with an all-star line up to match. April 5th, 11th, 18th, and 27th at Icehouse, 2528 Nicollet Av S in Minneapolis. Tickets are $8 in advance / $10 at the door and are available online at icehousempls.com/events. Doors are at 9:30 pm and performances start at 10 o’clock. All shows are 21+, so book your babysitter today.

The theme of this week is HaRDNESS – Push your physical, intellectual, and supernatural self to the limits. DaNCEBUMS performs with Gay Henry, Hijack, & tony the scribe.

    Inspired by the passion and vitality in the way that audiences respond to their favorite band, DaNCEBUMS set out to cultivate the same enthusiasm for their dances. The journey began at the 2014 MN Fringe with DaNCEBUMS Presents dancebums by dance bums with special guests and Dancebums. In the show, DaNCEBUMS played the role of a band performing the final stop of their global tour. Fueled by a dancer’s envy of the the love and support for the Minnesota music scene, they have worked tirelessly to transform fiction into fact. By creating choreography that adapts to any space, DaNCEBUMS engage hearts and minds in dark clubs, clandestine parties, and the most sought after auditoriums. This April, their hard work pays off with a month-long residency at Icehouse.

Envisioned as a journey through the core elements what it means to be a DaNCEBUM, this unique residency brings together performers from dance, music, and beyond. The program includes local favorites and emerging stars:

DaNCINESS - A celebration of the visceral delight of movement. Wednesday, April 5th, with Hiponymous, and P•PL.

HaRDNESS – Push your physical, intellectual, and supernatural self to the limits. Tuesday, April 11th, with Gay Henry, Hijack, & tony the scribe.

BuMMINESS – If you don’t know how, just DIY. Equal parts lazy and serious. Tuesday, April 18th, with Itch Princess, Theo Langason, and Sam Robertson.

PiZZA – Pizza stands for universal enjoyment, as a theme and experience. Thursday, April 27th, with The Controversial New ‘Skinny Pill,’ and Free Music.

DaNCEBUMS is a group of five making dance collaboratively and non-hierarchically in Minneapolis. Dubbed “the best dance party in town,” their work straddles the arty and the party as they knowingly move between precise technique and casual pop sensibility. In a search for radical joy, they embrace the awkward, conjure nostalgia, and contemplate bright futures. Their crowd-pleasing performance is imbued with humor, groove, exertion, and extreme bliss.

They have presented work at the Walker Art Center, Red Eye Theater, The Southern Theater, and the Bryant Lake Bowl. Their webseries, moves4u2do, allows fans to take the choreography off the stage and into their lives with simple instructional videos. Currently, DaNCEBUMS is realizing their dream of becoming a dance band - taking their work out of the theater and into bars, music venues, and parties.

DaNCEBUMS DaNCE. Created and performed by DaNCEBUMS, Eric Mayson, and Toby Ramaswamy. April 5th, 11th, 18th, and 27th at Icehouse, 2528 Nicollet Av S. Tickets $8 advance/$10 doors, icehouse.com/events. Doors 9:30 PM/show 10 PM. 21+.
