Thirty years ago, dancer and choreographer Tara King (of the ever-exploratory and exuberant performance group Mad King Thomas) made her earthly debut. To celebrate the day of her birth, 30 years hence, she's invited 30 performers of her choosing to create celebratory quick bits. Their music? The No. 1 hit songs on July 15 for each year from 1983 to 2013. Oh, what a party it'll be! Longtime Twin Cities community mainstays Hijack, Judith Howard, Tom Carlson, and Laurie Van Wieren are on King's dance card. So are Anna Marie Shogren and Galen Treuer (returning from NYC and Miami, respectively, for the occasion). Also not to be missed will be numbers from Angharad Davies, Emily Johnson, Megan Meyer, Sally Rousse, and SuperGroup. And that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg for this super-cool birthday dance cocktail.
July 15-16, 7 p.m., 2013
