NW New Works Festival 2016 Studio Showcase – Weekend 2 Jun 20, 2016

I find myself watching these piece wondering if all art is political, than does all art propose its utopian end? So in an offering of hubristic failure I give these projections from, about and ultimately onto these works of art. Arrogant as all audiences must be, to take someone’s art and decide what it means, how it is valuable, where it might lead us. A failure since I start off wrong, missing the point, wondering in the dark of my ignorance and limited experience.

NWNW Week 1 In Review by Dani Tirrell Jun 13, 2016

As I reflect the opening weekend of NWNW Festival, there are three performances that struck a cord with me. And got me excited about PNW arts again. The first being Vanessa Goodman.

Vanessa Goodman: She is what others try to be when it comes to contemporary dance and performance.  Musicality,  physicality, spiritual, control, articulation, loss of control and joy.  She could have easily been lost on the Mainstage , but she easily  made the stage her willing and small partner.

The Shit is FRESH Jun 12, 2016

How to belong, how to betray, how do we say what we say when we say

Kaktus Kolache
Saturated film reference, angsty jest, and "Can I understand this way of life?"
How much distraction do we need, want, desire, reject?
Community bound by food, families and history are bound by recipes, and Coley gave me a Psychedlia of being-ness.
Her howling made me happy and fed, and connected to. Next time, can we sing a long?
