Forever Plaid: Plaid Tidings is a deliciously fun revue, chock-full of Christmas standards and classic harmonies. In the 1950’s, on their way to their first big gig, the singing quartet Forever Plaid was broadsided by a school bus and found themselves harmonizing all the way to the pearly gates. But, a miraculous call from the angelic Rosemary Clooney brings the boys back to Earth for a "heaven-sent," once-in-a-lifetime encore that will lift your Christmas spirits with a stocking full of holiday favorites sung in perfect four-part Plaid harmony.

Plaid Tidings is the Christmas special they never got to perform, a truly “heaven-sent” holiday treat that will lift audiences’ spirits with classic music sung in perfect harmony.

They adjust to the culture, acclimate, and ultimately the young woman reclaims herself and her identity through hip hop, spoken word, and African music and dance. It is about letting go, holding onto, and reclaiming. This exciting 50-minute one act, intended for families and audiences of all ages, is written in poetry and verse, integrating elements of drama, movement, and puppetry.

In Breakin', the term "biting" describes one person taking another's stylistically unique move and incorporating it into their own arsenal of movement as if they created it. In many ways this artful theft, more than winning, is the high stakes in a breakin’ battle. Seconds explores how individuality and innovation are both commodified and censored in consumer culture. Dancers grapple with external and internal governing forces that compel conformity, rendering bodies disposable and replaced. Through a blend of Breaking, martial art and contemporary dance vernaculars, BRKFST company members tease out the multiple metaphors embedded in Seconds, interacting with timing, repetition and circumstance, while striving to discover and empower their covetable identities. Sound design is in collaboration with Twin Cities sound artists Katrah Quey and Breakaway.
