The Lucky Penny is celebrating its first birthday the usual way: drinks, cake — and a two-story cardboard house, life-size mind you, with which to stage a special preview performance of choreographer Blake Beckham's new dance work, Threshold. Founded by Beckham and Malina Rodriguez last year, the Atlanta group "supports the creation and presentation of cutting-edge contemporary art," according to its website, and has sponsored workshops, artist talks, and performances of original work over the past year. It's a self-proclaimed "motley crew" made up of performance artists, designers, and choreographers, among others. Come to celebrate; stay to see if you can take a piece of that house home with you.
