Michelle Ellsworth Blog Mar 16, 2015

At a career training workshop I attended with Michelle Ellsworth a year ago she was questioning the need for publicity in general, stating that she really might prefer a bovine audience to a human one, and why can't she just make an arrangement with a farmer, have him bring the cows, and do it in a field.  She seemed serious.  Really.  After last night's performance I have to say, I am deeply grateful that she didn't take that approach - I was grateful to have been allowed to be there.  It was one of the most enjoyable, hilarious, exciting and engaging shows I have seen.

CLYTIGATION #3 Mar 14, 2015

Ok. I'm typing this on my phone, which seems appropriate in some technological invasion spewing of words sort of way. I've also decided to not delete anything that I've already typed. The errors will remain. I'm just in the door from Michelle's world of boxes and constructed realities and disembodied commanding voice. I'm thinking about the man trapped in the box, being told what to do. When to snap, when to eat, when to hang yourself. It's funny when your the viewer but how frightening if you're the man. Is someone laughing at me now?

CLYTIGATION FUNTASIA Mar 14, 2015

So remember when Michelle Ellsworth essentially built her own Internet in her last OtB performance, Phone Homer? Well now, she has created an Arcade. And yes, you can play in it.

Michelle has transformed the studio theatre into a participant-friendly arena of buttons to press, levers to pull, bikes to ride, and 2 phones with live operators ready to talk to you (who may or may not be in same time zone – you should ask them who they are). Grab a quarter, drop it in the slot, and see what happens.

Clytigation #3 Blog Review Mar 13, 2015

I love Michelle Ellsworth's previous OtB performance Phone Homer and I've watched the OtB.tv version a number of times since and recommend it as a good way to get your art feet wet, so I had high expectations going into Clytigation #3.
