Blog the Boards - still an important idea says the PI Dec 22, 2008

by Jessica

In Regina Hackett's article Seattle Art Museum's search for youth she mentions Blog the Boards - OtB's very own blog - and its origins as a suggestion for something SAM can do to engage the elusive 18 - 35 crowd in this city.

Roughly 5 years ago we created this blog with this statement:

We hope to spark discussions between our bloggers and members of our audience - the people who most care about the work you see here at OtB.

JERK: Creepy panda bear puppets on the radio Dec 12, 2008

by Jessica

Gisele Vienne and Dennis Cooper, last heard from at OtB back in November with JERK, just made an appearance on KCRW's program Bookworm. They're quite a charming pair and have interesting things to say about their work- I'd recommend giving it a listen.

A review of a preview from our friends to the north Dec 4, 2008

by Jessica

Theatre Replacement just forwarded us some great comments they received about a sneak preview of That Night Follows Day that recently took place in Vancouver BC. We're excited to hear about this - partially because this performance represents a new venture for us as co-producers. And also because of the reaction it provoked. From Plank Magazine:

Each line opened into the theatre like a revelatory bloom of unexpected meaning. I felt like I’d never heard the words before. I felt like a prophet receiving the truth from a winged agent of God.

The short of it: go see this show. If you love dance, this show will remind you why. If you don’t like dance, this show will make you say,  “okay, dance sucks, EXCEPT for Kidd Pivot. ” Go see this show.
The long(er) of it: Kidd Pivot’s Lost Action was the first show that I’ve seen at On the Boards in which I enter the theatre hoping that it’s going to be a specific something, and it turns out to be exactly that.

My faith in the form of dance has been restored, or this is how I want to make love, Kidd Pivot style. Nov 21, 2008

by Jessica

You must see this show.

Personal preface: I make dance, even though for the past 10 years I have been more inspired by film and music and visual art forms than the craft that I have been trained in since I was 3.   I always believed that dance could say what all the other forms could not.   That it could tap into the unspeakable, a primal creative impulse, and connect us to our bodies in a sexually retarded culture that tells us not to, in any sort of healthy way that is.   But the truth, is that I have secretly hated dance for the past 10 years.   Not trusting that it c

Wait. Before you read this post, get tickets--if there are any left!--for this weekend's performance. You will not be disappointed. Au contraire. You will be stunned, perhaps to the point of wordlessness, as many gaping audience members were last night.
