Leverage Dance Theater will present an evening of immersive dance theater allowing the audience a unique experience as they follow the performers through the mazes, hallways, and stairwells of the newly renovated Intersect Arts Center. 

The show is inspired by the Halloween season, and is the second installment of the company’s sold-out, unOrdinary (2015).

As the quarters will be intimate, and audiences may, at times, feel visibly part of the performance. They are encouraged to dress in theme: preferably in something black, dark, creepy, or decaying.

Audiences should be prepared to move about in relative darkness, as they travel throughout the building and climb up and down two flights of stairs. This performance is rated PG and may not be suitable for sensory sensitive patrons.

This performance would not be possible without the support of Sports Medicine & Training Center and Intersect Arts Center. Financial support for this project is provided by the Regional Arts Commission and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.

Generations ago, Convoy Seven and ICC left Earth on a mission that would take them far beyond the solar system. Launched by the Planet United Consortium, a global group formed to pursue cooperative Earth-wide interests in deep space, nine ships headed into the unknown to explore a distant star called LQ Pyx. Eons later, the convoy has returned to LQ Pyx to begin work on the Web, the alien megastructure that covers the star. Is it a Dyson Sphere, designed to power a civilization as everyone believes—or something far more sinister? Travel to the remotest reaches of deep space in this wondrous follow-up to the acclaimed "Noumenon"—a tale of exploration, adventure, science, and humanity.

At The Bootleg

 

With his raspy, soulful voice and instantly memorable original songs, roots-rocking multi-instrumentalist Eric Lindell is a true one-of-a-kind talent. Mixing West Coast rock and swampy New Orleans R&B with honky tonk country and Memphis soul, Lindell creates American roots music that is both surprisingly fresh and sweetly familiar. Since his first self-release over two decades ago, Lindell has earned critical and popular acclaim, first in his dual home bases of New Orleans and Northern California and then across the country. Although influenced by American roots music from blues to country to rock, Lindell's style is all his own. He has performed thousands of gigs in roadhouses, clubs, concert halls and festivals and has appeared on national radio and television. His live shows overflow with happy, dancing people singing the words to every song.

Take a look in the St. Louis Blues' record books, and the name Bernie Federko is impossible to miss. A skilled, unselfish playmaker, Federko made those around him better; while his journey did lead him to the Hall of Fame, he is regarded by many as one of the most overlooked talents in hockey. In this volume, Federko reflects on his life on and off the ice. From his childhood in Foam Lake, Saskatchewan, to years in St. Louis playing with teammates like Brian Sutter and Mike Liut, and his recent years in the Blues' broadcasting booth, this is a refreshing chronicle of a legendary career.

 

Jeremy Rutherford is the Blues' hockey beat writer for The Athletic St. Louis. A lifelong St. Louisan who attended the University of Missouri—St. Louis, he previously covered the Blues for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He is the author of "100 Things Blues Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die."

Rebel and Misfits Productions is thrilled to present the third installment of the Immersive Theatre Project October 24-10. Dive into a shocking world and discover the heart and dark underbelly of a story that you have undoubtedly come in contact with before, but never allowed full access to the dripping heat and intimacy pulled along by its characters. This is one of Shakespeare’s boldest and most passionate plays deeply imagined. Who are the inhabitants? Why do their souls choose the courses they embark upon? What is behind the door? Immerse yourself in a world of direct interaction, walk into this complexly-woven tale, wade into its unlocked depths. We invite you to meet these characters as you never have before. Drink with them. Dance with them.  Share your secrets with them. They will, in turn, weave you into the fabric of the action. Come and experience this high-octane, dangerous, and sexy world, where nothing is ever quite what it seems.

The Rum Drum Ramblers solidify their spot as Joe's regulars after having 2 sold out shows the last couple years. After Ryan Koenig opened the show with some solo tunes last year Jack Parker said "that is one soulful dude". Then Mat took the lead and the band kicked it off and there was no looking back. They did it again and we look forward to them getting us up off our feet this time! Cowboy Ryan has had one hell of a time as he battled getting plowed by a car while on tour with Pokey in 2017. He has been cowboy tough on it and bounced back well. If you haven't seen Ryan since his accident, come on out and support one of St. Louis' favorite sons. And enjoy the hell out of this uber talented band that never disappoints.

 

Typical Joe's rules apply. $10 cash only at the door. Sets are from 8-9 and 9:30-10:30. Bring your own food and drink. Only water, soda and popcorn for sale at venue. Do not park on Kinsgbury, park on Des Peres or the school parking lot. Joe's is a listening room. Talking and smoking outside only, or go to the gallery next door to listen to the music while you talk.

Author of “The Art Forger” and “The Muralist,” B. A. Shapiro has made the historical art thriller her own. In “The Collector’s Apprentice,” she gives us an unforgettable tale about the lengths to which people will go for their obsession. It’s the summer of 1922, and 19-year-old Paulien Mertens finds herself broke and alone in Paris. Everyone in Belgium believes she stole millions in a sophisticated con game. To protect herself, she creates a new identity, a Frenchwoman named Vivienne Gregsby, and sets out to prove her innocence. When an eccentric art collector offers Vivienne the perfect job, she is soon caught up in the Parisian art world—including Gertrude Stein and Henri Matisse, with whom Vivienne becomes romantically entwined.
