My Arm is up in the Air Mar 25, 2011

In Tobias Wolff’s story “Bullet in the Brain,” a curmudgeonly book critic is shot at point blank range by a bank robber whose linguistic clichés the critic can’t help mocking. The bullet’s physical speed of 900 feet per second, becomes “a pathetically sluggish, glacial pace compared to the synaptic lighting” inside the critic’s skull. “Once it entered the brain,” Wolff writes, “the bullet came under the mediation of brain time.”

'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.
