Holcombe Waller on Theatre Replacement Feb 10, 2009

by Jessica

I had the opportunity to see That Night Follows Day while we were performing at the Vancouver PuSH Festival early February.   This piece is simply stunning.   The children performing were so shockingly natural, so utterly engaging and, at times, confrontational that it felt like one of the freshest, most honest pieces of theater I've ever seen.   Their unique and quirky personalities are each showcased, and you fall in love with each and every one of them.   Their ability to deliver unison text without any apparent cues for timing really left me wondering if childr

Thanks, google, for giving me a shot of randomness this morning Feb 9, 2009

by Jessica

When searching for "Seattle + tEEth + Grub + On the Boards", one of the options Google gave me was this video of a hamster eating popcorn on a piano. What this has to do with tEEth, I'm not sure. And why Google didn't give me something more along the lines of this clip from tEEth's production Abracadaver, I really don't know...

comments from UW class on chelfitsch Feb 5, 2009

by Jessica

I was very intrigued at the idea of subtle gestures.

The fact that the storyline wasn't too extravagant, but rather very simple, simple enough to actually mimic or imitate what the characters were "feeling." I really felt this was evident in Miffy's character. Her gestures made me see what she was feeling.

Five Days in March was an experience unlike any other. It broke that bonds of what I view to be conventional theater. The actors specific movements on stage seemed involuntary and random at times.
