locust's "Mockumentary" Rocks <font size=2>by Anne</font> Oct 20, 2006

Choreographer Amy O'Neal and costume designer Macks Leger share an artistic credo: Both seemingly will try anything as long as the result looks fabulous. In "mockumentary," O'Neal, composer/co-director Zeke Keeble, and a talented ensemble of dancers and collaborators create a work that is eclectic, funky, and occasionally incomprehensible, but that invariably looks fabulous. If you care about modern dance, you shouldn't miss it.

"Mockumentary" lacks the high concept of O'Neal's and Keeble's previous work, "convenience," but in many ways is the more enjoyable for it.

locust / mockumentary: New Friends In Different Mediums <font size=2>by Adam Sekuler</font> Oct 20, 2006

In respect of full disclosure, I thought I should start by letting you know that I know Amy O'Neal. Not well necessarily, but I've worked with her on a small project earlier in the year. That might not mean much for some, but for a guy who's been in Seattle a mere eight months, knowing anyone at all means that they're a friend.

Now that I have that out of the way, I'll let you know what I witnessed, or rather experienced last night. locust's mockumentary is nothing short of expansive. That is, it's a show on the verge of overload.

Pas par pas &ndash; Growth and growing pains for locust <font size=2>by Mike Keim</font> Oct 20, 2006

Mockumentary, the new show by locust, has excellent dancing and music hampered by video that does little to enhance the show. The dancing is good in solos and full cast sections, and sublime during the partner dancing. I went last night remembering part of their last show, convenience, in which Ellie Sandstrom did the craziest awesome foot-pattycake (is that the technical term?) with another dancer lying on her back, and I was excited to see more of this partner work. I was not disappointed. I think locust’s partner choreography is incredible; I could watch it all night.

locust review Oct 20, 2006

I always appreciate when artists put themselves out on a limb. Locust’s opening night performance of  “Mockumentary ” multi-tasked several elements with dance, live sound, video, a story with characters, and the technical nightmare of syncing up 3 video screens and light cues. Amy O’Neal’s choreography is by far a strength. Her unique movement vocabulary, which blends modern and hip hop, is completely interesting an unpredictable. I love the contradiction that it is both grounded and light and beautiful and ugly.
