OtB’s Sound Technician Julian Martlew has been working with El Gallo's string octet since Sunday and had offered more insight into the music.
The Mexico City-based Teatro de Ciertos Habitantes has been seen across 5 continents at some of the most prestigious festivals and venues, including everything from Germany’s Hebbel am Ufer (also known as the home of OtB alums Rimini Protokoll) to the Lincoln Center in NYC.
Press reviews are starting to roll in. Watch this post for more updates throughout the weekend!
"Vivarium Studio Proves Small is Beautiful…and Fun" - The SunBreak
I try not to categorize artwork by nationality, but there is something, well, particularly french about L'Effet de Serge. Whether intentional or accidental, I felt an intellectual alignment with French philosophers such as de Certeau who examined the daily.
I'm a lucky girl. I'm not an actress (though like most people, I have fantasies of being "discovered") and I haven't been behind the scenes on a theatrical production in years either. But I guess the powers-that-be thought I'd have the skills to eat pizza, drink wine and chat with beautiful french artists on stage. Um, sure, why not?
