What the Float - June 24, 2016 - 8:00pm to late

For the second year in a row, Forward Flux Productions is bringing the silent disco What the Float from NYC to Seattle. The Float will kick off PRIDE weekend on Friday, June 24th, and is hosted by local drag queen, Sparkle Leigh.

Revelers will be led on a mind-expanding dance adventure through the streets, plazas and parks of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Dancers meet at our starting location where they will be set up with a receiver and a pair of glowing headphones. The What the Float DJ’s will have the music swelling in your ears as we dance through the city, remaining completely inaudible to onlookers. The pied pipers of Float will guide the group through an exploration of Capitol Hill as we “float” through the streets, creating joyful dance mayhem wherever we go.

This experience is limited to 50 guests, and will include stops at some great bars celebrating PRIDE along the way. 21 and up only. Comfortable shoes recommended.

Additional Dates

For those unable to join on June 24th, there will be a second Float hosted at Peddler Brewery in Ballard on July 30th.

For the second year in a row, Forward Flux will present two new plays in the same theatre, allowing audiences to choose one, or see both in one night with show times at 7pm and 9pm. Each play runs around 80mins and has no intermission (as it should be). Tickets start at just $5, and are available starting July 19th.

THE WEDDING GIFT is a dark comedy set so far in the future it’s stupid. It centers on an ordinary dude named Doug who suddenly finds himself at an other-worldly wedding… as a gift. Partial funding is provided by 4Culture.

THE SUMMER HOUSE is a darkly comic thriller about three teens who are haunted by the recent disappearance of a local girl as their summer of drugs and partying comes to an end. Summer is over. Forever.

Meet our featured artist: Barry Johnson

Barry is a Washington based visual artist and filmmaker from Kansas that's had a range of works in visual art and film shown across the U.S. and world. Waking up to paint in his studio at two every morning, Barry works tirelessly to create pieces that challenge views on gender, race, sex, and sound. His work is a result of events taking place around the world and in everyday life. To force growth in his skills, he prefers to work on different collections of pieces simultaneously and often abandons a style once he feels he has a strong grasp on it.
