Writers Corps Profile: Ezra Dickinson Oct 31, 2016

by Michelle Peñaloza

This season, an Ambassador Writers Corps Member will write a profile on each of the nine local artists in 16/17. These in-depth conversations between local artists and local writers will take the place of curatorial notes in the performance programs. 

Before becoming an OtB writing ambassador, before researching his work online, I saw Ezra Dickinson dance on my flight from SeaTac to SFO.  I scanned through Alaska Airlines’ free channels, uncommitted to whatever book I’d brought for the flight, and found a series of SIFF shorts. One in particular, Dinosaurs and Sea Hawks, I found incredibly touching. The short film follows a man sleeping beneath a bridge. Upon waking, he walks to Pioneer Square, puts on his mask (really, a dinosaur helmet), and dances gingerly among folks walking up and down the street. A woman takes notice of him, dances with and around him, placing her...

In 2013, he gained critical praise performing a powerful stealth dance work on the streets and sidewalks of downtown Seattle, titled Mother for You I Made This...

by Erin


Enter the world of artist Ezra Dickinson with this short film, Dinosaurs and Sea Hawks (2014), made by Dickinson with artist and OtB alum Linas Phillips. 

From Dickinson's website:
"Inspired by creating performance gifts for his schizophrenic mother Dinosaurs and Sea Hawks is another story in Ezra Dickinson’s ongoing performance work. The dinosaur mask is intended as a reminder of child hood and quite literally a mask to hide from the harsh reality of the world through Ezra’s mothers eyes. Sleeping under a bridge is a man and his dinosaur mask. Waking up, he walks in to the heart of the city and puts on his mask. A friend a stranger a kindred soul emerges and the mask is passed off and traded. The man watches then walks away with a Sea Hawks hat...
