Samedi (Saturday) Eyes May 10, 2014

by Leah Vendl

Funny to me that the thing I remember most about Baron Samedi is the very last moment I saw the performers on stage. The bow, and all their eyes. They all had precisely the same expression — grateful, I think, trying to soak in the new audience in front of them, but soaked more with the complex appreciation of doing something for the first and last time. Baron Samedi's last run.

A Blank Page May 10, 2014

by Elisa B. Cooper

Alain Buffard set out to tell the stories of people from disparate perspectives yet all with something profoundly human to impart. In this, he succeeded. Baron Samedi took seven directions at once. In perhaps my favorite scene, a conversation ensued between two men, one clearly relishing his power over the other, and that exchange was interpreted in multiple languages as the scene flowed on.

Sense Memory Game May 10, 2014

by Kate Ryan

In the lobby I was instantly surprised... these people here tonight to see Baron Samedi.. they are all much older than me, a different generation completely.  Other than a couple classic OtB family members, the majority of the audience was..born in the 50's..60's..

The Rebels' Scent May 9, 2014

by Yonnas T Getahun

The unruly silk page where bodies brew,
  She will never tell you her real name.
The center stage, the timeless hew,
  She will never tell you her real name.

The first transgression
  for blind and blunted faith.

Descending into the Underworld May 9, 2014

by Vivian Phillips

Should I ever descend into the underworld, well, probably when I descend there, I want a chorus to welcome me with the intrigue, and vocal beauty like what is present in Baron Samedi.  Nothing else will matter after that, except perhaps my desire to interview Alain Buffard.  I need to get in your head a little please, because you certainly got into mine!

The Impossible Island of Youkali May 9, 2014

by Eric Pitsenbarger

Salvador Dali would enjoy this rambunctious, messy chess game of polyglot adult circus absurdity. Against his chosen landscape of forced perspective and loose gravity, the collage of multi-hued faces pose heroic or crawling; they entwine, swim, scramble about, perch and fold over precarious edges.

Relish May 9, 2014

by Dylan Ward

It’s almost been two years now since my brief encounter with Herbert Blau. I was a student of his in his last class; it was my only claim to know him besides a scattering of articles and chapters I had read. Within that 10 week class, we were meant to uncover the thread defining the lineage of the Avant-Garde. Indeed, the threads were many, and academic.

Jerry Manning May 1, 2014

by Sarah

We at OtB are so saddened by the loss of our colleague Jerry Manning.  He was an artists’ artist and a binding force in our community. We will miss his artistic vision and its imprint on the work created here. We will also miss seeing him in our audience, doing what he did so well – supporting Seattle’s artists.
