An open letter after seeing Grub Feb 13, 2009

by Jessica

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.

tEEth @ OtB Feb 13, 2009

Inside you there is something uncivilized, miserable, hungry and to put it frankly-- grubby and no matter how much you try to paste a well-behaved pretty face atop it will always be there just under the skin screaming for attention.   Your ill-tempered, self-indulgent inner child so to speak.   tEEth let this part of themselves run the show from start to finish.

I was under the misconception this was a dance show, but really it is more of a multi-media musical theater piece.   tEEth has a lot of things going for them.   A physically diverse and courageous cast.

Thanks, google, for giving me a shot of randomness this morning Feb 9, 2009

by Jessica

When searching for "Seattle + tEEth + Grub + On the Boards", one of the options Google gave me was this video of a hamster eating popcorn on a piano. What this has to do with tEEth, I'm not sure. And why Google didn't give me something more along the lines of this clip from tEEth's production Abracadaver, I really don't know...
