Winners and Losers Apr 24, 2014

by David Schleiffers

Like much of what Artistic Director Lane Czaplinski brings to the stage of On the Boards, Winners and Losers is avant garde, deconstructed, and artistically potent.  It was refreshing to experience a live performance piece that utilized a seemingly simple structure to highlight the complexities of the two performers’ lives. There was not a “setting” to speak of.

Review of Winners and Losers Apr 24, 2014

by Ryan Law

Leaving I am only mildly, politely concerned about how much of this is scripted. I muse in the lobby about ‘what does the second night look like?’ Are we talking an outline, full on script, or what?

But to be honest I don’t care.

"Singing Toward Consciousness" – The Sunbreak reviews Wayfinders Apr 12, 2014

by Erin

"When the houselights dim the record scratches. After a few bars in the Baroque and some distortion Holcombe Waller and his ensemble delight while vaguely indicating food for thought in a fast-paced show that, dramatically, is mostly reveal with the slightest of conflict and resolution sequences.

Post Show Conversation Apr 11, 2014

by Tim Smith-Stewart

In this blog post, I decided to try and capture my honest first reaction to the performance. My friend who I brought to the show agreed to hold any conversation about the performance until we got to the bar and started recording from his smart phone. We talked for about an hour. This afternoon, I transcribed pieces of the conversation.

Navigation is ancient Apr 11, 2014

by Whitney Ford-Terry

The ways in which we traverse our physical and psychological landscapes have always been informed by our relationship to variable technologies. Because, as it turns out, technology is not new. Technology is creative problem solving. A map. A technique. Technology is language. It is not (just) smartphones - it is a toothbrush. A System. A method. A solution to a perceived problem.

by Joyce S.C. Liao

It was probably the lake, and the fog on the water, which made me think of a story I have known in my childhood. In the story a tiny raccoon saw an ever-mind-blowing sight of the Giant Great Mink Mother giving birth to her mink babies in a swimming pool.

Untitled Painting Responding to the Visual Condition and Stimulus of a Performance, No.1 Apr 3, 2014

by Dani Dodge

BeginAgain. Begin again. Begin. Again. Overload, release. Chaos, release. Pressure, release. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

We can relate to the over stimulation, or over work, or over expending. It takes energy. And you have to find a way to recharge yourself. For you. I took a lot away from BeginAgain. Mainly reflection.
