They called it the Rogue Teaser Show at the Tower Theatre on Thursday night, and I didn’t think it was a tease as much as it was a treat! About 30 acts from the festival strutted their stuff on the stage, and there was everything from magic tricks to belly dancers to singers to comedy monologues. I’m going to tell you about some of the performers and groups that made me want to see them, and some old favorites of mine that are worth the time and the Rogue Bucks.

by Kathleen Denny



Families! Every child grows up in a different one, even with the same parents at the same address. Take brothers and sisters, six of them scattered, one snowy Wisconsin December, and their father’s funeral, gather them in and dramedy will follow. In this household, sailing and the law combine with Hagar the Horrible, war, peace and The Energizer Bunny. Argument was Dad’s favorite sport and his oldest daughter was his designated sparring partner. And she’s been assigned to deliver a eulogy. “Something nice,” says her sister. But Kathleen doesn’t do nice.

This is Ananka’s 12th happy year performing at the Rogue Festival. Although the Ananka Dance Co. performs in classical ethnic and cabaret belly dance, during the Rogue …the favorite is “Fantasy Spirit”…dancing with beautiful belly dance techniques and capturing moments in a variety of themes in a variety of ways. This year, we have the creative challenge in bringing, in dance, ‘Moments in Myths and Mythology.’

The Great Green At Rogue 2014

IN THE February 20 ISSUE

FROM THE 2014 Articles,

by Joanna Rotkin



The Great Green is a thorny narrative of social codes, false pretenses, quirks and incongruities. Amid the uproar of vexing topographies, this solo work unearths, disputes, and relishes in a skewed conversation of gluttony and greed. By investigating the demarcation of ownership through landscape and power, The Great Green is a world that traverses between absurd stand-up comedy, starving despair, and choreographic upheaval. Through rich imagery, dialogue, repetition, and fourth wall break down, The Great Green codifies personal, familial, and cultural gesture using an illogical and bizarre theatrical arc to convey the vast disconnect between the grandiose power of greed and ownership with everyday existence in our consumer driven culture.

She travels on cruise ships and scenic trains, jamming all hours of the day. He’s hauled his guitar around the world on his back, entertaining locals and fellow travelers. She’s lain awake in a converted monastery in Spain, constructing a song in her head about jet lag and moonlight. Together they are Highway 41, the local folk band.

Belly dancing is the oldest form of dance, dating back thousands of years, although it has only been known in our country since the late 19th century. The solo form, or Cabaret style (also known as American Cabaret Style), has its roots in the 40’s and 50’s casinos and supper clubs on the banks of the Nile River. Egyptian belly dancing stars, such as Badiaa Masaabni, Samya Gamal, Tahiya Karioka and Naima Akef’s talents spread to American shores via Egyptian movie musicals that sought to mimic popular Hollywood films.
