chelfitsch Jan 29, 2009

by Jessica

The first five minutes of Five Days in March reminded me of the first five days or so of the one-plus quarters of Japanese I took in undergrad. Which is to say, I felt completely disoriented and out of my element. I was trying to simultaneously read the supertitles and watch the story being told in the quiet physicality that was unfolding on stage, at every moment convinced that one was making me miss out on the other.

chelfitsch: Five Days in March Jan 29, 2009

by Jessica

On a bare stage, the actors speak and move with the utmost casualness. I thought I was going to see a play, or a dance-theater work, instead  7 actors forgot they were in a theater and simply told me about some  events in their lives that happened to coincide with the start of the  war.

Except: the story was completely deconstructed. We kept jumping  slightly forward, slightly backward in the timeline of events.

chelfitsch: post-show dialogue Jan 29, 2009

by Jessica

I pretty much always go see OTB shows with my sweetheart, who I'll call A.   After shows, A and I generally have a pretty vibrant conversation about our first thoughts.   I thought I'd try to capture at least part of that conversation for this post.

Me:   I really would have liked that show when I was 20.
A: Why is that?
Me:   I don't know...

Previews | tEEth and Jan Fabre Jan 17, 2009

by Jessica

In the past 2 weeks there have been 2 videos that I haven't been able to stop watching (to the chagrin of my office mates, I'm sure). One is by Portland's daring and dark company tEEth and the other by the Belgian performance titan, Jan Fabre.

two takes on Linas Phillips' Lasagna Jan 16, 2009

by Tania Kupczak

To miss Linas Phillips’ Lasagna is to pass up the season’s freshest helping of experimental theater. Linas has shone a light on himself before on stage and screen, but never to such expansive effect. It helps that his companion in that unflinching light is Jim Fletcher, an artist and performer of unmatched warmth, charisma and humanity.

Also in the recipe for lasagna... Jan 12, 2009

by Tania Kupczak

We've been talking a lot about Linas Phillips' Lasagna that's opening on Thursday night and how lucky we are to have both him and Jim Fletcher in from New York City to make this show happen. What you may not know is that the show also features the lovely former-Seattlite dancer Leah Schrager and a live score by local favorite Lori Goldston.

Any way you slice it, this show is going to be amazing. More info and tickets here.

by Jessica

Jim Fletcher - about to take to the OtB stage in Lasagna - made his first appearance here as Jay Gatsby in Elevator Repair Service's Gatz. Unwinding with the company after each 7 1/2 hour show was always an experience, as evidenced by this photo from their final night of karaoke at Ozzie's.
