A walk on the dark side

Weird? Violent? You’re ready fodder for Dale Bridges’ next book

By Adam Perry
Justice, Inc. is the debut short-story collection by former Boulder Weekly A&E editor Dale Bridges, who left the paper in 2009 to rent a tiny room on the Hill and write stories about, among other things, zombies, InstaBabies, clones made for the purpose of public executions and recreational killing sparked by conversations at Denny’s. Bridges, who grew up in Colorado and now lives in Austin, writes about the black hearts of both men and women with both levity and vitriol. The up-and-coming satirist currently works the nightshift at a bookstore in Austin; he says the “weird customers” inspire his writing. Recently, Bridges called Boulder Weekly to talk about Justice, Inc.

Life on pointe

Young ballerinas work hard and dream big

By Devin Blomquist
Young ballerinas are dispersed throughout the building, stretching their long, lean limbs, lacing up their satin pointe shoes and sitting patiently as mothers, friends or teachers apply finishing touches on hair and makeup at the Youth America Grand Prix Regional Semi-Finals in Denver in late February. Some stand against railings and cabinets at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts to balance themselves while going through the motions of their upcoming performances. First position, second position, third position, fourth. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

Storytelling takes the stage

Local Lab pares down the spectacle to let the raw, experimental core of theater shine through

By Elizabeth Miller
Theater, at its core, is storytelling. It’s a gathering together to hear another’s life story, to see ourselves in those stories in ways that make our own stories make a little more sense and to experience that catharsis as part of an audience. At Local Lab, the three-day festival of new plays, the experience is stripped back to just the stories. Actors read from scripts still in hand. Playwrights take chances and venture experiments they wouldn’t in the presence of New York City’s daunting theater scene.

All guts, no glory

Local climber Jason Haas is on a mission for self-discovery, and he hopes he never tops out

By Steven Grossman
As Jason Haas clears off a tabletop littered with fake fruits and vegetables, piling them into a plastic shopping cart that barely reaches his knees to the sounds of his giggling son shuffling across the kitchen, the mountaintop solitude that defined his life 15 years ago seems far off. Now a full-time math teacher with a wife and two kids and owner of climbing guidebook publisher Fixed Pin Publishing, Haas is juggling his priorities. Anchored to the delicate balance between the responsibilities of a husband and father and the call of the mountains, Haas has started planning ways to find the adventure and introspection climbing offers him a little closer to home, and he’s setting out to help others do the same.

A changing climate in gender equality

Environmental group highlights women-led projects to address global climate change

By Sidni Giordano
What do gender equality and the environmental crisis have in common? “Everything,” according to Terry Odendahl, executive director of Global Greengrants Fund, a Boulder-based environmental fund that supports grassroots action on a global scale. On March 8, International Women’s Day, Odendahl was recognized for her leadership in advancing the rights of women working toward environmental justice — both locally and internationally — at a luncheon hosted by WorldDenver. Odendahl has been at the helm of Global Greengrants Fund for the past six years. She previously served as the executive director of two women’s funds and has a diverse background in anthropology, philanthropy and gender studies.

Out of the shadows

Older LGBTQ adults lived most of their lives in the closet, but a Boulder County project leads the way in helping this community come into the light

By Caitlin Rockett
Gwen Goodwin was just shy of 53 when she decided it was time to come out of the closet — born in a man’s body, she says she could no longer live “the half and half life.” So she went to her boss at the Colorado Department of Human Services, expecting to be told to pack up and leave, but instead her confession was received with compassion.
