Bare Bait Dance to Perform at FVCC

Flathead Valley Community College Theatre will open its fall season with a special performance of “How to Open a Cupboard” by Missoula’s Bare Bait Dance September 13.  The show includes a cast of professional dancers, music and sound design by musicians Bethany Joyce and John Sporman, and a danceable set design by Missoula visual artist Jack Metcalf.  “How to Open a Cupboard” is the physical manifestation of our inner nostalgia, both crippling and jubilant. It uncovers what we bottle in, what we eradicate and what we coffer away forever.  Through dance and story-telling, company members box themselves in physically, figuratively and mentally.  Whimsically honest, you may never look at a cupboard the same way again.

Sponsored by FVCC Theatre and Student Government, the show will be performed at 7 p.m. in the FVCC Theatre inside the Arts and Technology Building on the college’s Kalispell campus.  Tickets are $5 for general admission. Admission is free for all students.  Advance tickets are available at the FVCC Bookstore inside Blake Hall on the college campus and online at  Remaining tickets will be available at the door.

In residence at Missoula’s Downtown Dance Collective, Bare Bait Dance (BBD) aims to create dance in Montana for Montanans.  A foundational goal of the company is to tour throughout the state bringing dance, performances and workshops to smaller Montana communities.  For more information, contact the FVCC Theatre Box Office at 756-3906 or Bare Bait Dance at (406) 214-0097.
