"avant-garde unicorns" Feb 24, 2010

Today just keeps delivering more and more descriptions about OtB artists that are kind of incredible. The title of this post comes courtesy of nytheatre.com in reference to Radiohole. The company's latest performance (soon to be featured on OntheBoards.tv) inspired this new description and this:

Life was dull and joyless, my theatre-going lackluster. Late-winter New York City blues have left me impatient, fractious, and listless.

Radiohole Jan 11, 2008

Radiohole's Fluke was created from an improvisation activity the cast called Bible-Ear, in which a performer is expected to simultaneously listen to and recite back the recorded book playing in his headphones while holding a conversation with a person who is unable to hear the recording. The result in this case is the wild, physically rigorous and darkly hilarious riff on Herman Melville's Moby Dick.

How do you tell the epic story of that white whale in under an hour and a half with three people and a naked bearded guy on a television? You don't.

radiohole FLUKE Jan 11, 2008

If Guy Maddin were to become obsessed with Moby Dick and create a live theater piece, it might look something like Fluke, now showing at On the Boards.

This is one show you will WISH you sat in the front row for, as total immersion is the only way to go. Get ready for a weather report whispering figurehead, a bearded fellow screaming intermittently from a live video feed, a man fishing with a very long rod, enchanting little row boats and general mayhem on the theme of the sperm whale.

See Radiohole | <I>Fluke</I>. You will be happy you did. Jan 11, 2008

For sheer spectacle, Fluke is the best show I've seen in a long time, at On the Boards or anywhere. Don't expect it to have much to do with Moby Dick -- it's just 75 minutes of inventive theatrics. If they're related to the novel, I doubt Melville would recognize his work. But enjoying the show requires no literary notes; it's all about ping-pong balls, Electric Light Orchestra, dollar bills, seafaring lingo, Chairman Mao, springboards, gale warnings, terrible puns, eyes upon eyes, and much, much more.
