Can Can, 93 Pike St, Suite 307
"The Can Can is a unique phenomenon in Seattle, and maybe in the country: a tiny lounge where people come night after night to drink and watch modern dance. They don't necessarily know they're watching modern dance. The Can Can Castaways have been pigeonholed as a burlesque troupe, but only some of their acts include stripping, and even those aren't in the neo-burlesque style (much of it formulaic and dull) currently rampant citywide. In burlesque, elaborate costumes and their removal is the whole point—there are only so many ways one can wink while pulling off a glove. For the Castaways, dance is the point and the occasional stripping is just a punch line, a trick to fool their audience into thinking they're watching something other than modern (sometimes even the dreaded interpretive) dance. You could describe the Castaways as a gateway drug." (Brendan Kiley)
