Flatlands Dance Theatres 15th season of professional contemporary dance invites audiences to Book Club, a one-of-a-kind event combining dance and literature. FDT will premiere five original dance works created around central themes including: personal reading and writing practices, literary genres, banned books, library and bookshop spaces, beloved characters, and famous literary quotes. In collaboration with the Lubbock Public Libraries, Literacy Lubbock, and Wild Lark Books, we will offer a community book club open to all, pre-show creative activities at the Mahon Library and during the First Friday Art Trail at CASP Studio E, childrens book giveaways, and opportunities to purchase books from local authors and those that are featured in the show.
Book Club will be presented on Thursday, October 5th and Saturday, October 7th at 7:30pm in the Firehouse Theatre at LHUCA (511 Avenue K). Ticket prices include a $3.00 Select-a-Seat surcharge, and are $25 general admission and $15 for seniors, children, and students with ID. Tickets can be purchased at the door, online, or by calling Select-A-Seat at (806) 770-2000.
