Meet us at the Maker Faire!
Geeksdanz will be performing at the Pittsburgh Maker Faire, October 10th and 11th at the Children’s Museum! Geeksdanz performed at the Mini Maker Faire a few years back, but this year the Faire is big enough to be an official full-size Maker Faire! We’ll be presenting four performances over the two-day run of the Faire, performing various improvisation games and then explaining the rules so you can jump in and dance with us!
Here’s our current schedule of performances (still a bit subject to change – will have updates if anything changes!):
Saturday: 11:30 am and 1:30 pm
Sunday: 11:30 am and 3:00 pm
Come meet us at the Faire!
Finding Margo, Losing Gus – Encore Performance!
Did you miss your chance to see Finding Margo, Losing Gus in August? Never fear! We’re presenting a FREE encore performance at the Main Carnegie Library in Oakland on Sunday, October 18th, at 2 pm!
Come to Oakland and see what our Stage Manager calls ‘the best show we’ve ever done’!
Finding Margo, Losing Gus is a story of love and loss, drawing its inspiration from the work of bestselling author John Green. Green’s Young Adult novels portray teens struggling to make sense out of life and answer the big questions – from learning to empathize and “imagine others complexly” to dealing with tragedy and loss and the unromantic realities of life. Green is best known for his novel “The Fault in Our Stars,” which deals with sixteen-year-old cancer survivors confronting their own mortality and attempting to love and support each other with the little time they have left.
Throughout all four of Green’s bestselling novels run the themes of love and loss, the intricate reality of relationships, and the complex emotions that go along with them. Finding Margo, Losing Gus investigates these themes further, jumping into the space between the novels to explore both the similarities between characters and the diversity of relationships. The performance features music by the Mountain Goats (Green’s favorite band) as well as original compositions by fans of John Green’s work. Particular focus is placed on the un-romanticized reality of so-called “romantic” relationships, and the idea that being there to support your partner in everyday problems is sometimes more important than physical attraction.
Date: Sunday, October 18 – 2 pm
Location: Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Main, 4400 Forbes Avenue (Oakland), First Floor Quiet Reading Room
