Dark Matter and Dark Energy Feb 10, 2011

The title Dark Matter refers to the astronomical term for the unknown and invisible matter that is the majority of our universe. Together, dark matter and dark energy make up 96% of the universe and are understood to be the force behind its expansion. Although scientists continue to study and debate the composition of dark matter, there is very little that is currently understood.

'brain running a mile a minute" Feb 7, 2011

From Kasia:

Immensely pleased to see (IN)STABILITY this weekend! I’d been curious how the ideas I had watched develop across short-form performances would translate to an evening-length piece, and left OtB with my brain running a mile a minute. Don’t you love it when artists do that?!

Watching (IN)STABILITY Feb 6, 2011

Last night was the third time I watched Paul Budraitis performed the project. The first time I watched in OtB 12 MM, the second time in 2009 Artopia. It was fascinating being able to see the different stages of this work being developed over the years. I still remember how shocked I was the first time seeing it; Budraitis did not use many props – it was him, the stage, his handkerchief, the knife, and the pure intensity. The second time I watched I could not focus very well because of the expected intensity and pressure.

On Paul Budraitis' (IN)STABILITY Feb 5, 2011

This show is filled with reflective surfaces, on stage and in the text. Light bounces off aluminum creating atmosphere and focus, the back wall ripples with reflections from a pool (a sewer? Puget Sound?) agitated with pennies and movement. Broken glass absorbs what is thrown at it. The light design of this show is breathtaking (L.B. Morse is of course responsible), the set is tactile and textured creating tension and metaphor before any action takes place, the performer is earnest and agile and the text is eerily familiar.
