Dancing Something Undanceable Nov 19, 2010

Ralph Lemon’s new work, HOW CAN YOU STAY IN THE HOUSE ALL DAY AND NOT GO ANYWHERE? is an example of why I love live theater. Or live dance. Or live theatrical dance. His work is difficult to categorize which makes me enjoy it even more. He does not take anything for granted and is forever questioning and exploring.

Making Sense Of What I Saw Last Night Nov 19, 2010

I highly recommend reading the program notes and the writings provided by Ralph Lemon before watching the piece. It helps to provide context and abstractly/subconsciously make sense of the autobiographical puzzle. I view the work as an individual's journey to understand and be at peace with love and nothingness through the act of creation.  How Can You Stay In The House All Day And Not Go Anywhere is a peacemaking effort by Ralph Lemon with knowledge and 'love, and its ghosts;' it is a search for grace, a place that Ralph states as 'the suspension... of contemplation.'

But he will always say, “It’s fu…” Nov 19, 2010

If you aren’t holding a ticket to Ralph Lemon’s show, stop reading this right now and jump to the Box Office button on this website and buy one.  RIGHT NOW.  Word has it that the run is nearly sold out. The piece is at the end of its historic North American tour and word further has it that the dancers have reached their limit and that the piece very likely won’t be performed again (at least in this incarnation) after Seattle.  When you witness the rigor, courage, focus, vulnerability and athleticism in extremis of their dancing, you’ll understand.
