THE NEXT WAVE: SEATTLE BUTOH FESTIVAL 2011
JUNE 3-18

DAIPANbutoh Collective presents The Next WAVE in conjunction with the Seattle International Dance Festival with performances, workshops, and forums on historical and current aspects of butoh.

Workshops with Koichi and Hiroko Tamano on Saturday, June 4, 2-5 p.m., and Sunday, June 5, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., will be held at the Velocity Dance Center (1621 12th Ave.).

THE GENE POOL
AT THE ANNEX THEATRE

Meet the Grays - an average family. Mira cooks, cleans, wears dresses, is sexually frustrated, and her spouse is a workaholic veterinarian. Their son is almost 18, has a new girlfriend that he wants to lose his virginity with, and is always hungry. The only way in which this family is not conventional is that the parents are Lesbians. What happens when their son wants to know who his dad is? The Gene Pool explores the family's relationships and how they are dealing with their mid-life crises, their son's resolution to lose his virginity, and ... oh yeah, his question, 'Moms, who is my Dad?'

Tickets: $12-$18 general admission. Reservations at 425-298-3852 or boxoffice@arouet.us or www.brownpapertickets.com/event/174247. $10 rush tickets will be sold 5 minutes before showtime, depending on availability. http://arouet.us.

DIVERSE HARMONY IN CONCERT - 'DOUBLE SHOTS AND FORGET-ME-NOTS'
On Saturday, June 4, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 5, at 2 p.m., at Broadway Performance Hall (1625 Broadway at E. Pine St.), Diverse Harmony presents 'Double Shots and Forget-Me-Nots,' an original musical written by Diverse Harmony members Kat Miller and Adam Quillian.

Welcome to the Double Shot Cafe, where more is brewing than just the coffee. Jake, the shop's junior manager, wants to start a Queer community center in his town. But Jake is a dreamer, not a doer, so he pushes all the work onto others, especially his gal pal, Rebecca, who buries herself in the project as a means of escaping her problems. As the grand opening for the center draws near, the group faces a rise in anti-Gay sentiment in their community that challenges them personally and threatens their efforts to create a safe and accepting environment. Set against the backdrop of a fantastical coffee shop, the show explores themes of acceptance and self-worth while dealing with the contemporary issues of homophobia, transphobia, bullying and youth suicide. So pull up a chair and grab a drink. You're always welcome here!

Tickets: $15 at the door (22 and under admitted FREE).

Diverse Harmony is a Gay/straight alliance youth chorus for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and straight youth (ages 13-22). 'We use our passion and the power of music to inspire the celebration of differences in our homes, community and world.' www.diverseharmony.org.
