Tonya Lockyer is Consumed Mar 31, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

Two years ago this weekend, toward the end of Mark Haim’s  “The Goldberg Variations, ” Tonya Lockyer sat in a cone of light on the Mainstage at On the Boards and seemed to channel the very soul of the darkest, most spiritual variation in Bach’s sublime work. I still treasure the beauty and power of Lockyer’s performances that weekend. I knew then that I’d want to see anything she created.

Tonya Lockyer Mar 27, 2008

It’s been eighteen hours since Tonya’s Lockyer’s solo performance in  “Consumed. ” Images and messages are still sifting ”¦my initial thought after the show: Tonya is an INCREDIBLE performer. PERIOD. The dancing: gutsy, nuanced, articulate and dynamically rich – she is a master of qualitative specificity, from sassy T&A jazz (hilarious and awful) to luscious carving and arcing to the most amazing full-bodied trembling (after sharing the horrific story about Monika ”¦).

Young Jean Lee Mar 9, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

Young Jean Lee's show is the most pleasurable thing I've seen at On the Boards all season. It was a hilarious treatise of love and self-hate as she looks at what it means for her to be an Asian woman.

Review of Young Jean Lee's "Songs of the Dragon Flying to Heaven" Mar 8, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

The first thing I notice when I walked into the theater space was the stark contrast between the pacifying row of paper lanterns, murals and rock garden, and the barren and austere stage. The set seemed incomplete and I couldn't help but think of ways Young Jean Lee could have made this more "Asian." Design a Pagoda perhaps?

Inside the Experience w Young Jean Lee Mar 7, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

I loved this show because it made me uncomfortable. And not in a "this guy is gonna come out and lap dance on my face" way, but in a way that makes me look inside... gulp.

So I get to OtB thinking I was running late, and there's a huge pile up at the door of the mainstage. Okay. I see that the only entrance to the seats is to walk all the way around the set. I get it...it's a journey. However, all the people in front of me were walking very slowly. The mood was contemplative.
