Gumdrops and Cupcakes
is a work in progress featuring the tender lunacy of Scott Heron's dance paired with elegantly skewed electronic art songs performed live by Brooklyn's Corey Dargel. There will also be a new short super-8 dance horror film by Thomas Little and Scott Heron.

Scott Heron has been dancing and making dances for 20 years. His work has been presented all over downtown New York and he received a New York Dance and Performance "Bessie" Award in 2003. Longtime collaborations include work with Circus Amok of Brooklyn, Hijack Dance of Minneapolis and Deborah Hay Dance Company of Austin. He currently calls New Orleans home. He has shown work the past two years with Tsunami Dance and runs the Sidearm Gallery and Performance Space on St. Roch Avenue. For more information or to contact him, visit: and

Everette Maddox: Catching Him in Pieces
Mondo Bizarro presents a preview of their upcoming piece inspired by the late local poet, who during his tumultuous life published several collections and in 1979 helped start the Sunday poetry readings at the Maple Leaf Bar, now the longest running poetry reading series in the South. While his vivid public readings would hold his audiences in a delighted thrall, alcohol abuse eventually led him to ignore his base needs, and he opted to sleep outside, often on the Maple Leaf's back patio.

EUONYM, by Morgan Aldrich
In 1997, Rebecca Sealfon won the US National Spelling Bee. Her odd mixture of overconfidence and nervous energy briefly won over the nation; she would raise her hands to her mouth and spell the words into them before speaking her answer into the microphone; when given her final word, "eounym," with each letter her voice got louder and louder until she was screaming the letters at the top of her lungs. The clip of her odd victory was replayed on the news for a few days and then she faded into obscurity.
