For more than 20 years, comedians Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt have combined their considerable talents as the duo Dos Fallopia. For hardcore fans or the simply curious, there is no better showcase of their sketch comedy chops than their annual Christmas tradition, Ham For the Holidays. This year's outing -- dubbed Close Encounters of the Pork Rind -- includes such celebrated characters as mother-daughter country duo The Spudds, the tiny but proud Sequim Gay Men's Chorus, and the angst-ridden Slam Poet. If you love LGBT comedy, song parodies, cheap laughs and razor-sharp zingers, you might need an extra serving of Ham for the Holidays. Warning: Although no hams are harmed during the production of the show, young minds might still get warped. Best to leave the kids at home. Learn More

An excellent dance concert. The dancing in the first half was set to excerpts from interviews of the dancers discussing their insecurities growing up as dancers (along with some edgy type music). At first, this seemed a little indulgent but as the dance and interviews proceeded, I found it both moving and thought provoking. The second half was more traditional but really enjoyable. There was a short question and answer period with the choreographer and dancers after the show which gave the show another layer of intimacy. I drug my 20 year old son with me to this concert. I was a little nervous about whether he thought the first half was just too out there. But, he was familar with the music and actually preferred the first half. The written program identifying the pieces, songs, and dancers was really confusing. I can't recall the last time I was confused by a program.
One of Ohlberg's favorite pieces, Gloria is a celebration of life, dance and spirit. Centered around Vivaldi's master choral work, Gloria is a sumptuous feast of lush movement and stiking images. Previously only half of the score has been choreographed and Ohlberg is delighted to be able to complete this work on Seattle Dance Project.
Departure From 5th (2012)
A reprisal from Project 5, Departure from 5th is an original work created on Seattle Dance Project that will be expanded this year into a full act work. A play on words, the title suggests both a break from the classical world of dance and also a courting of the inevitable time in a dancers life they must leave the stage behind. Powerfully balanced between poignant observations and humorous confessions, Departure is a rare and fascinating look into the soul of the dancer.
