Join Lucky Plush for a double feature at a discounted price to see both The Better Half at 8pm and a special work-in-progress showing of their upcoming world premiere Rink Life at 5pm.

In Rink Life, Lucky Plush brings its highly-integrated brand of dance-theater into a communal space that nods to the visual aesthetics and social dynamics of 1970’s roller rink culture. Launching from a collision of plot points in several one-act plays, the script-turned-libretto is both spoken and sung by the ensemble and builds upon fragments of everyday aural input—passing conversations, intimate exchanges, distant whispers, pop song ear-worms. These source inspirations come together in the delightful and moving world of Rink Life, where people navigate relationships, self-expression and rejection in real-time.
