Superamas at OtB Sep 19, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

My personal experience with Superamas has been quite intense and immediate. Its been interesting to work the load-in/tech for the show, as well as being one of the local, high-kicking extras for the performance. I got a sense of the piece from seeing some video during rehearsal for the dance extras, and was initially put off a little by the extreme content. However, after watching a run-through in the theater and seeing a majority of the piece (except for when we had to run backstage to get into place) I felt the power and the draw brought on by the focused execution of the performers.

Experience as a guest Curator for 12 Minutes Max – Blog #2 Jun 18, 2008

by admin

Both shows turned out great. By circumstance the first was on Father’s Day which we acknowledged and the second happened to be the first day that same-sex couples could be married in California[which are recognized in Washington State], which we also acknowledged. The performers were great in both shows, but in general they were a little more relaxed and into their characters in the second.

Experience as a guest Curator for 12 Minutes Max Jun 17, 2008

by admin

I was guest curator for the last show of the season ending in 2008. John Wilson was my co-curator. Not having been a curator before I was apprehensive about doing it, but very thrilled as well since I have been a subscriber to OtB for years and have been going to 12 Minutes Max for years as well. I was so thrilled that I skipped plans to go to San Francisco’s Symphonies Black & White Ball, something I haven’t missed since 1981. John Wilson, my co-curator, is a very experienced teacher at Cornish who specializes in dramaturgy.
