don't miss 12MM tonight! Nov 23, 2009

I'm proud the show flows so nicely. It surprised me how 'solo' and 'dance trio' the show is. Duh. Interesting that I had several artists in the evening comment to me how their piece felt out of place with the others. There is no place, which makes them all in place—an entertaining and stimulating place. Read: Bake You A Cake choreographed by Gabriel Bruya is a fifties fantasy dream kitchen with rustic American dresses and stiletto heals, sweeping the floor with sweet smiles, inviting you right in the eye. I could taste those cakes.

November 12MM Nov 23, 2009

One of the most enjoyable things for me about this 12 Minutes Max showcase was the progression of pieces throughout the evening. Even though the five out of seven of the pieces are essentially solos, it doesn't feel like a solo-heavy show because three out of five solos involve video, a musical instrument and two puppeteers for the solo puppet. Another thing that caught my eye were the costumes. Jose Amador and Tamer Abdo were both modestly dressed, but each had their own powerful message.

Upcoming 12 Minutes Max Nov 18, 2009

Curating this 12 Minutes Max was truly a pleasure, and I think we selected a knock-out line up. The best part about this 12 Minutes Max is the variety of performances. Not only do we have a variety of styles, like dance, theater, puppetry, and video/performance art, but also a contrast in mood and tone. Some pieces are hilarious, some eerie, while others are touching, beautiful, bizarre, and nostalgic. Tell yourself and tell your friends, don't miss it! - $12 for 12 Minutes Max Guest Curator Danny Herter

Nights in White Satin, or Eric Fredericksen + You Will Speak and Sing this Wednesday! Nov 13, 2009

After performing and then working at On the Boards, I have to say that the amount of karaoke I have done has increased about 600%. Which is why I am so excited for Speak and Sing on Wednesday!

Some fond OtB memories for me include jamming into Seattle's Best Karaoke (SBK) with Hand2Mouth Theatre, then with Linas Phillips and Co.

More ALASKA reviews Nov 11, 2009

Check them out:

"Man oh man! Last night I was fortunate enough to see the last performance of Diane Szeinblum’s piece Alaska at On the Boards. At it’s most fervent moments, the piece cast a hypnotic spell over the audience."
