Doing it for the kids Mar 9, 2009

I've started to really throw myself into efforts around OtB's next show, That Night Follows Day. It's an exciting, scary endeavor for us. It's the first time we've acted as co-producers AND the first time we've brought a cast of kids onto our stage. We're in good hands though - Tim Etchells is a masterful writer and James and Maiko of Theatre Replacement have proven time and time again to be some of Canada's most experimental theater makers.

A reponse to Slog Mar 6, 2009

I love this show full stop, and have hoped it would come to Seattle since it first knocked me out at TBA in Portland, fall 2007. I hope I get to see it again, again.

The piece is an attempt, I think, to be heartfelt and real, and to use a million alienation devices (bad accents, overacting, repetitive found gestures, goofy costumes, dance breaks) as a way of letting you listen to everyday conversations without associating them with specific persons or situations (the only proper nouns, till the very end, are brands of soda, movie actors, New York City, and acronyms for office forms).

Nature Theater of Oklahoma at OtB (in Eastlake) Mar 6, 2009

No Dice is like Netflixing an entire season of a tv show you really like.   You just keep watching it, even though you feel like you should probably stop and do something else.   You keep watching because it feels so damn good.   If you stop you’ll have to go back to your real life, where people are saying pretty much the same things you’re watching the actors say, but the actors are way better at it.   No Dice is full of bizarre theatrics, gestures that repeat in a satisfyingly non patterned and non random feeling way, and melodrama that is so laugh ou
