echoes of so many things that had come before Apr 19, 2013

By Brett

The Finale is a fantastic night of entertainment. Or course, my view of it may be skewed a bit by the fact that I have been following the entire Collision Theory project for the better part of a year. And that journey was the basis for a lot of what I loved about the show. It's great fun to see little pieces of so many of the previous events show up in the final show. From the text, to the music, to the movement, there were echoes of so many things that had come before.

Beginner's Guide to Collision Theory: The Finale Apr 11, 2013

1. KT Niehoff is a longstanding force in the contemporary dance community in Seattle.  A life-long vocalist and NYU graduate with a degree in Theater, KT was taken by surprise when shortly after college she realized her true passion was dance.  After attending dance class furiously in New York to improve as quickly as possible, she ended up moving to Seattle along with Michelle Miller to be a part of the Pat Graney Dance Company.  Upon arrival, KT admits she had a, “What have I done?!” moment after leaving the robust dance community in New York.

Feminist, Naked and Funny as Hell Apr 10, 2013

I came to this show knowing that everyone was naked and they were feminists, really not much else. I had heard the director liked to take things to the extreme which sounded exciting. I haven't had much experience with feminism directly, although I have had some experience with nude performers. Lots in fact, everybody I know in a band has played naked at one time or another, so much so the clubs had a clause that said if you showed your pubic hair they wouldn't pay you. None of these performers were women however, much less feminists I'm guessing.

Right the Fuck On, Sister (one for the scrapbook) Apr 5, 2013

1. In 1973, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade.

2. Working the patriarchal system.

3. I am a huge fan of the two previous plays that I've seen. YJL is one of the smartest, most direct playwrights I've ever encountered. The fact that she makes work about her biggest nightmares speaks to her intellectual chops as well as her fearless self-awareness. I was very excited to see this latest work.
