Mad King Thomas is a crazy monarch of dance, also known as the choreographic collaboration of Tara King, Theresa Madaus and Monica Thomas.
Let's face it, if you're here, you probably already know who we are and what we do. And you already want to give us money!
But, if you need a refresher, or need to be reminded of the reasons you want to give us all your pocket change for the next ten years, read on! (And in the rare occasion that you don't know who we are, you can find out more at www.madkingthomas.com.)
Mad King Thomas is a trio of badass provocateurs. We're dance-makers who make dances that don't always look like dance. We entertain you with our questions and we question you with our entertainment. You've seen us shake our tits on stage in the name of feminism, jizz all over our bicycles in the name of freedom, and cartwheel on patriarchy, hegemony, and the complicated awful world that we love so much.
Finally, you can throw money at us like you've always dreamed! AND, you can write it off on your taxes! We can always find a way to use your dollars, be it buying enough sparkles to bedazzle an elephant, paying for a scientist to resurrect a pop star, or paving a road with good intentions.
Specifically, right now, your donation will help us to tour to the West Coast in the Spring of 2012! That's right, it's Give to the Max for MN, so give us money to help us get out of here!
We're planning stops in Albuquerque and San Francisco, but we're also hoping to hit up Seattle and Portland! (And maybe LA or Denver while we're dreaming big...)
But also, donations will help us make new dances for Minneapolis! And let us quit our jobs to focus on dance-making and workshop-giving and awesomeness-producing! And pay for the expensive lipstick habit that some of us have developed! (Just kidding, we'll use our own money for that one.)
We love you forever already. Now, let us love your money too.
