Jandek review: Let me tell you a story...<font size=2> by Dustin Haug</font> Oct 28, 2006

3 years ago, I was on tour in Nashville, TN. On Halloween, I performed 3 sets of improvisational dance with some local musicians in the attic of an abandoned maple syrup warehouse. There was an art gallery opening downstairs, and when I wasn’t dancing, I was drinking beer from a gigantic metal keg out of a plastic cup. A few days later, I found myself at a bar that one of the local musicians suggested I check out. The bar was called "The Bleeding Pig" or "The Skewered Hog" or something equally southern and disturbing. The bar was behind the parking lot of a sketchy McDonald’s at the back of a nondescript dead-end road. The bar was coldly lit with fluorescent lights and had a beat up, uneven concrete floor. You could order only 2 different drinks from the bar: Budweiser and Bud Light. They were all out of Budweiser. A band was playing in a side room, which was little more than an extension of the roof with a few tables and chairs underneath. The side room had no walls,...

locust's "Mockumentary" Rocks <font size=2>by Anne</font> Oct 20, 2006

by Tania Kupczak

Choreographer Amy O'Neal and costume designer Macks Leger share an artistic credo: Both seemingly will try anything as long as the result looks fabulous. In "mockumentary," O'Neal, composer/co-director Zeke Keeble, and a talented ensemble of dancers and collaborators create a work that is eclectic, funky, and occasionally incomprehensible, but that invariably looks fabulous. If you care about modern dance, you shouldn't miss it.

"Mockumentary" lacks the high concept of O'Neal's and Keeble's previous work, "convenience," but in many ways is the more enjoyable for it. In "mockumentary," O'Neal seems relaxed, as though she had nothing to prove. Consequently, "mockumentary" often feels more like a dance party at a private club than a conventional performance, right down to the front-row sofas on which the dancers recline and relax when not performing. And O'Neal and Keeble do know how to throw a great party.

"Mockumentary" opens two weeks after Constanza Macras' "Back to...
