Thirty Years In The Chattanooga Spotlight For Barking Legs Theater
The show must go on - and for the past thirty years, it has at Barking Legs Theater on Dodds Avenue here in Chattanooga.
From the start, the concert hall has opened its doors to performing artists - in particular, those from marginalized communities - here in the Southeast and beyond.
This month, Barking Legs is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a kaleidoscope of nearly two dozen events that run up to the night before Thanksgiving: jazz, dance, theatre, bluegrass, comedy, spoken word, film and more.
On Thursday, starting at 7:30 PM, Ann Law - Barking Legs’ founder and executive director - presents “This Place”: a dance monologue written and performed by her that delves into her Tennessee ancestry.
On Friday, also at 7:30 PM, Barking Legs alum Marcus Ellsworth hosts “Weird / Rude / Probably Cursed” - described as, quote, “a showcase of miscreatives” - and for mature audiences only.
