Dayna Hanson: We Really Like "We Never Like Talking About The End" Dec 1, 2006

Here's a blog review by Michael van Baker on Seattlest:

"We Never Like Talking About The End" opened at On the Boards last night and we just picked up tickets for Saturday night, too. It's an evening of song, dance, and video that makes you laugh out loud while contemplating your mortality.

Dayna Hanson: We Never Like Talking about the End <font size=2>by Michael Seiwerath</font> Dec 1, 2006

Dance theatre about the near-death community & spirituality, intercut with an American independent film and an appearance by the choreographer’s father. Once again Dayna Hanson has taken disparate elements that should equal a disaster, and somehow created a sweet, endearing work of art. Even as Dayna has moved farther away for focusing on choreography in recent years, the dance pieces of We Never Like Talking About the End remain blindingly brilliant.

Dayna Hanson: We Never Like Talking About The End <font size=2>by SJ Chiro</font> Dec 1, 2006

I'm finally home from seeing the opening night of Dayna Hanson's "We Never Like Talking About The End" at On the Boards. There was a party after the opening night of the show. No one spoke about the end at the party, which I found telling.
Dayna Hanson is a dancer. And a choreographer. And a film producer. And film director. And a musician. And a writer. While Dayna Hanson's vision for this piece may have been singular, her expression is definitely multi-fold.

Dayna Hanson: Blur <font size=2>by Bret Fetzer</font> Nov 30, 2006

Dayna Hanson's new piece is about blurriness. Between life and death; between everyday action and dance; between rehearsal and performance; between ending and beginning. As the audience enters, musician Dave Proscia and Maggie Brown are hanging out in the den that designer Etta Lillienthal has created; behind it is a ping-pong table, and across the room is a kitchen with a refrigerator—it's like a suburban basement unfolded like origami and spread out across the OTB stage. The phone rings; Maggie answers it; it's Dayna, who's running late, so they should start without her.

Maya Beiser: Rara Avis Redux Nov 18, 2006

by Christopher DeLaurenti

Solo instrumentalists are a rare breed of bird. And of that select species, those who champion new and new-ish music are seldom spotted in Seattle, so I was pleased that OtB brought Maya Beiser back for a solo cello concert.

Incorporating video, an appealing stage set of multiple monitors, and spoken word, Beiser’s concert featured a slew of new music.
