Reviews for Grub are rolling in! Feb 13, 2009
"It's dynamic and creative and funny (someone in the audience yelled at the rest of the crowd for being afraid to laugh) and definitely worth seeing." - Seattlest
"There's stomping and grunting, laughing and muttering, grimacing and thumbsucking, videography (including blue-screen trickery) and snapshot-taking (or the parody thereof), jitters and quivers, lip-licking and teeth-gnashing." -

Dance is seldom easy to quantify or explain. How can the movement of bodies across a stage depict things so essential to the human experience? Often we witness the drama of personal relationships or the interaction of the soul and the larger cosmos. The object is frequently transcendence, the process of our unlocking this mortal coil to inhabit a space beyond it.
The Portland collective tEEth, whose work Grub is being performed through Saturday the 14th at On the Boards, takes the human body itself as domain and subject.
An open letter after seeing Grub Feb 13, 2009
Dear Colleagues of tEEth,
I want to say thank you for your performance tonight. I was glad to have a chance to see your work in person, as opposed to pressed into a tiny YouTube box.
You are clearly a charismatic and talented group of artists, and it’s for this reason that I want to be respectfully honest about my reaction to your work. What I saw tonight, though engaging and dynamic at times, seemed unfinished, or perhaps more specifically, underdeveloped.
