Superamas Sep 19, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

We found our seats near the front. A beautiful woman in tight fitting jeans and red heals took the mic. Downstage, a man started strumming a guitar. I started tapping my foot to a song I thought I knew, but couldn’t quite remember. A few minutes later the whole cast came downstage to sing the refrain, coaxing the audience to clap along to the uplifting beat.

Great Shoes and Naked Europeans Sep 19, 2008

In the program notes (which, thankfully, I read after the show), Gillian Harkins of UW says this show is "deeply uncomfortable" -- which I find baffling, because I had quite the opposite response: The show is all too comfortable, blandly so, really. It's a handful of scenes -- some live, some on video -- and some songs (including "Smells Like Teen Spirit" -- can there be a ban on anyone using that song in any movie or live performance for at least the next ten years? It might regain its potency by then), some dancing.

Superamas at OtB Sep 19, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

My personal experience with Superamas has been quite intense and immediate. Its been interesting to work the load-in/tech for the show, as well as being one of the local, high-kicking extras for the performance. I got a sense of the piece from seeing some video during rehearsal for the dance extras, and was initially put off a little by the extreme content. However, after watching a run-through in the theater and seeing a majority of the piece (except for when we had to run backstage to get into place) I felt the power and the draw brought on by the focused execution of the performers.
