chelfitsch Jan 29, 2009

The first five minutes of Five Days in March reminded me of the first five days or so of the one-plus quarters of Japanese I took in undergrad. Which is to say, I felt completely disoriented and out of my element. I was trying to simultaneously read the supertitles and watch the story being told in the quiet physicality that was unfolding on stage, at every moment convinced that one was making me miss out on the other.

chelfitsch: Five Days in March Jan 29, 2009

On a bare stage, the actors speak and move with the utmost casualness. I thought I was going to see a play, or a dance-theater work, instead  7 actors forgot they were in a theater and simply told me about some  events in their lives that happened to coincide with the start of the  war.

Except: the story was completely deconstructed. We kept jumping  slightly forward, slightly backward in the timeline of events.

chelfitsch: post-show dialogue Jan 29, 2009

I pretty much always go see OTB shows with my sweetheart, who I'll call A.   After shows, A and I generally have a pretty vibrant conversation about our first thoughts.   I thought I'd try to capture at least part of that conversation for this post.

Previews | tEEth and Jan Fabre Jan 17, 2009

In the past 2 weeks there have been 2 videos that I haven't been able to stop watching (to the chagrin of my office mates, I'm sure). One is by Portland's daring and dark company tEEth and the other by the Belgian performance titan, Jan Fabre.
