Hey girl. Feb 3, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

Wow. What a show of contradictions: so full of images but so lacking in fully realized ideas. I experienced moments of true visceral response, like I never have before. The images "Hey Girl" created had real power to move me that had nothing whatsoever to do with intellectual response. I felt them in my gut.

Hey girl! Feb 1, 2008

by Erin

I hope I won’t ruin my ice queen façade when I say that last night’s performance of Hey Girl! had me in tears from about 10 minutes in until the end of the show. I’m not easily moved by any art performance – and working at On the Boards, I have seen many, many performances. The symbolism and props used, which would have been obvious and ridiculous in the hands of a lesser artist (hey, dumbass! women are oppressed! etc etc), I found strangely lovely and riveting.

Hey Girl, Brilliantly Handled Symbols and Medieval Shit Feb 1, 2008

by KateR

I’ve been searching every corner of my mind for the right expressive adjectives to encompass my thoughts on this piece as a whole and am now officially admitting defeat. Please imagine that I mean something more when I say that  “Hey Girl! ” is important. It’s much more important than I am going to be able to describe.

My mother (a creature chiefly at home in the visual arts and my ultimate, shining example of verbal abstraction) was most impressed by the sound element of the performance. As she described it, the sound added a dimension.

The Real Artists of Hey Girl Feb 1, 2008

by Sara E

Three years ago I wrote "Real Artists Make Masterpieces" on the wall of my shop. It's a quote from an NPR story I had just heard about a group of farmers or cowboys or some other stereotypically hick group of rural yokels who had turned themselves on to painting and sculpture and had organized a small artists' collective. These were blue collar, red-state ordinary folk who we white collar NPR-listening urban folk assume hate art and all things beautiful.

gloopiness = hey girl Feb 1, 2008

by Bret

If Hey Girl! weren't skillfully executed, it would be painfully trite. A young woman extricated herself from an oozing fluid (in which is embedded a molted human skin), looked at herself in a mirror, sobbed, put on lipstick, poured perfume on a sword...if this had been produced cheaply, it would be freshman college feminism. But the fluid was this amazing viscous gloop that, even after 75 minutes, was still flowing off of the table; the way the lighting revealed the gloop, and the actress embedded in it, manipulated my attention with consummate skill.
