Move It on Down the Line 

Wednesday, Oct 15 2008
All we can think about is concrete scrapes — bare knees on asphalt, gravel scratched into tender palms, that kind of thing. We're pansies. At "Trolley Dances," the performers are so not scared of such potential disasters. As audiences travel from one interesting outdoor location to another on Municipal Railway cars, several contemporary dance companies wait, ready to jump around on fountains, rappel down walls, and fly synchronously around platform poles. Some have been known to dance in and on the train cars themselves: Again with the danger! Featured companies include Scott Wells & Dancers, Joanna Haigood's Zaccho Dance Theatre, Epiphany Productions, and Adigun Sipho Capoeira; all have prepared site-specific work to perform along the newest trolley in town, the T-Third.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
