CoPAC celebrates 22 years of pushing boundaries at BLT
Since 1993, Barking Legs has been providing musicians, dancers, and other artists a stage on which to perform, and to celebrate, Contemporary Performing Arts of Chattanooga (CoPAC) has brought forth “The Day of the Legs.
As a tip of the sombrero to the Day of the Dead, four seasonal altars will fill the lobby, where guests can pick up a treat as well as admire the visual artistry of the altars. Food, entertainment, and, of course, incredible artistic performances will bring the community together for an evening of celebration and reflection.
Catch one or all eight of the evening’s performances, ranging in discipline from drumming, dance, and storytelling to comedy and musical improv. Only Chattanooga artists will take the stage, giving the event a true community feel as the night explores its two themes: The first hour concerns ancestry, while after intermission, the second hour takes a turn toward examining “fear, death, and the morbid glee that art can find in those themes.”
Doors open at 7:30, performances begin at 8. Advance tickets, $22, or $25 at the door. While this isn’t an age-restricted performance, artists have the freedom to create whatever they wish, so be aware that there may be adult content.
