Reggie Wilson/ Fist and Heel <font size=2>by Allison Van Dyck</font> Apr 13, 2007

I loved this show. In a geniunely touched to the spirit kind of way. As a choreographer and dancer watching this show, I was really pressed to think about contemporary dance performance and what it means to "choreograph", "design movement," "perform." These are all concepts that can be adopted superficially onto the body and by the artist and/or they are concepts that can be generated from the core in a raw, honest, simple way. This is what I saw in the performance last night.

Reggie Wilson - I said: "My cat would love it" <font size=2>by Ines Andrade</font> Apr 13, 2007

Would have been love at first sight for my cat: shimmery shiny sparkly curtains all over the stage, Disco music and bodies rolling on the floor. Please be reassured, the performance was highly enjoyable for humans as well. This was a stress free experience, that made the audience wanting to dance and join. Just that, is cool in itself. At the edge of corkiness, it almost started as a dance history documentary, with lots of humorous moments. The mix of poor choreography and fascinating moves did not really do it for me.

Reggie Wilson: The Tale Review <font size=2>by Josh Reisberg</font> Apr 13, 2007

I went to see The Tale: Npinpee Nckutchie and the Tail of the Golden Dek. What's that you ask? It is Reggie Wilson/ Fist and Heel Performance Group's production presented by On the Boards. The show is running April 12-14th. I highly recommend it. As I walked into the auditorium I was already feeling good, but the metallic glittering streamers that were shimmering blue and purple made me feel even better. By the way I'm color blind so you can't trust me on the colors. But it looked like a funky disco was about to happen. The dancers came out and were dressed only in black.

#100 from Outer Space (Split Bill) Mar 30, 2007

For the past two weeks or so, I've been watching the counter on our blog, eagerly awaiting the 100th post, that first milestone in a new blog's life. It's true that we've been actually blogging for several seasons now, but this season's new format feels like another beginning. I have secretly been hoping that I would have the chance to write that nominal 100th post, but didn't want to orchestrate a reason just for my own geeky satisfaction. Luckily, after watching the Split Bill show last night, I have a really amazing reason to post.

Split Bill on the SLOG Mar 30, 2007

Brendan Kiley posted about last night's show on the Stranger's SLOG: "There are surprises. There is tap dancing. There is intellectual and emotional content beneath strange, beautiful, can’t-stop-watching-it choreography. It’s theatrical and smart and fun." Read On.

Split Bill review <font size=2>by Sean Ryan</font> Mar 30, 2007

First, I will say that Split Bills are a unique opportunity for us to catch two performances by two artists within our region; allowing audiences to travel to two different worlds and be mystified, stupefied, or even sometimes compromised. I remember being involved in Split Bill back in the day when there wasn’t a Northwest Artist Series. I remember the excitement; the opportunity for two artists, one who had been in the community for some time (Peggy Piacenza), the other, a group (VIA/ Tonya Lockyer) who had their first big debut in Seattle. The latter of which I was apart of.
