Wynne's jam made me think of Teddy's JAM.

Should I Stay? Or Should I Go? Apr 16, 2009

What follows is an early-morning conversation between Yoko Ott and Scott Lawrimore after a late-night outing to see Sister Taking Nap.   It was the opening night of Wynne Greenwood’s newest performance...

Yoko Ott: After pouring my first cup of coffee this morning, I was compelled to go to the refrigerator, open it, and look for jam.   I found two jars, Pele’s Poha Berry Jam and some peach preserves.   I haven’t used either in eight months.   Both were gifts.

Wynne Greenwood Apr 16, 2009

I am NOT sure I'd recommend it to any friends that I can think of , but I was really into it.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how to engage in the present moment   and this piece was nothing if not an exercise in the present moment.

The CARE that Wynne and Gina take to craft these moments is what I think is so interesting. Not really the moments as they play out into a story - or the way they look on stage - and CERTAINLY not anything about what they mean...

Part of what I find refreshing about the piece is that the Meaning felt irrelevant.

From Another Bouncing Ball:

As presented in Sister Taking A Nap, [Greenwood's character is] a drain on everybody except the members of the audience, who respond to Greenwood's dry wit.

Sister Taking Nap Apr 16, 2009

I went to see Wynne Greenwood's piece, Sister Taking Nap, at On the Boards tonight. I don't know too much about her work other than the fact that I should know more. I saw video of her performance work (which is kind of fitting) as Tracy + the Plastics but that's the extent of it.

The set is minimal. Imagination: abundant. Humor is drawn from repetition and keen timing. In this piece she works with Gina Young, of TEAM GINA, who's arms are used by Wynne as both telephone and refrigerator door water dispenser. It's about change.

Here are some folks who are talking about Wynne Greenwood:

Young Creature:

Although many of us may have shed some tears knowing that there will never be another Tracy + the Plastics album, at least we can take refuge in the fact that Wynne Greenwood is still out there making art.

Wynne Greenwood and Tracy + the Plastics Apr 9, 2009

by Jessica

We've talked a lot about Wynne Greenwood in relation to her last performance project, Tracy + the Plastics. The group, which consisted of Wynne and 2 projections of her bandmates (Nikki and Cola, both played by Wynne), toured across the US and quickly became a cult-pop visual art band. Take a peek at this lo-fi video:

From Jeremy Barker's preview:

Wynne Greenwood's solo electro-pop trio Tracy + the Plastics was one of the most brilliantly conceived and executed performance art projects to come out of the Northwest that we know of, ever.
