Legends Jun 17, 2012

by Shannon Stewart

As predicted, the mainstage show of Weekend 2 is like a deck of wild cards, misanthropic rock film, designed chaos, surrealist history, and well, Bolero!

I took in both the Studio and Mainstage show in one evening.  I know…greedy, right?

NWNW 2012—second weekend Jun 17, 2012

by Bret

Seeing the Studio and Mainstage Showcases, punctuated by a hastily gobbled slice of pizza in between, makes for a long night of artistic exploration.

She took the tablecloth down to the sea and called it fashion! Jun 17, 2012

by Eric Pitsenbarger

Expecting Bad News from the Government is the driving force behind a life of listless thrust. The black core that rots any sprout of optimism, the obvious outcome: a world of crap...so live as if your gonna die tomorrow.

Pregnant Jun 16, 2012

by Eric Pitsenbarger

I know that look. The intense focus fueled by a nuclear rod burning white hot. Laser-like precision resting behind a glacial facade. Quiet calm concealing fire and once unleashed the withering heat sanitizes any surface and will pass through titanium like butter.

obsession and icons Jun 16, 2012

by Shannon Stewart

To be honest, the experience of being an artist making work for a festival is challenging.  You have limited possibilities of light, set, and costume elements,  Your time is limited.  Your tech time is limited (though OtB goes above and beyond being accommodating on all fronts).  And the worst part, you have absolutely no control over what other artists are doing and how tha

Love, Darkness, Light and Loathing Jun 10, 2012

by Shannon Stewart

Last night I dashed from the Marriage Equality Gala at the Convention Cetner to OTB to take in the Mainstage show, effectively missing my opportunity to see Ron Reagan Jr (a ballet dancer!) speak on behalf of the fight to defend marriage equality in Washington State in order to take in the new works of Hand2Mouth, Mike Pham, Sara Edwards, and Kate Wallich.

Personifying in Unparalleled Ways Jun 10, 2012

by Eric Pitsenbarger

A bunch of friends (evident), get together and build a contraption: A performance piece about love. The tremulous, sweet voices carrying a pure message. The yearning, euphoria and eviscerating tragedy of love. Through song, through the switcheroo of mouths and instruments, through many hands working as one.

Weekend One Mainstage Showcase is music-heavy and video-heavy--and so good Jun 9, 2012

by Leah Vendl

Hand2Mouth's "Something's Got Ahold of My Heart" features at first a plaid clad ensemble telling and the sweet-tragic narrative of a blessed-by-a-curse love triangle.

Weekend One Studio Showcase: there were bodies, and then there were animal bodies Jun 9, 2012

by Leah Vendl

It begins with Tahni Holt's "Sunshine" begins with the word "Satisfaction" written in neon pink spray paint on an unfolded box. The piece sets up fluctuating dualities between artificial and natural (are we able to find satisfaction in either?).

Love Affair with the Studio Theater Jun 9, 2012

by Shannon Stewart

I left the Northwest New Works studio showcase last night thinking, man, I love the studio theater.  Sitting in the very center of the back row, the familiar black and gray vestibule tucked under the lobby of OtB’s main space held me comfortably within a foray of radically different worlds created by four veteran performing artists.
