OtB Dispatch aka The Bog (for Annie) Sep 15, 2006

I don’t like the name OtB Dispatch much but it’s our feeble attempt at a staff blog, which is really just a cover-up strategy for the fact that I was terrible about updating my own blog. At a minimum, we’re promising weekly posts by our staff and we hope readers will check back often to make sure we’re staying on top of it.

Anyway, we’re psyched about the utility of our new website. Not only do we have more control over our blogs but there are also more interactive features that make the blogging experience so much better.

Mountain Blog #1 Aug 15, 2006

These are thoughts, questions, frameworks, revelations from our first week of residency with Deborah Hay in Bellingham. (Peggy Piacenza, Gaelen Hanson, Amelia Reeber)

What is choreography?

How can we further that question?

----------------------------
TOOLS TO NOTICE WHAT IS HAPPENING AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT ON STAGE

What if every cell in the body has the ability to perceive the uniqueness and originality of all that there is?

Noticing the feedback of the whole body at once as the teacher.

Surrender the pattern of facing a single direction.

Allen Johnson | <i>Another You</i> Nov 17, 2005

Transferred from our blog archive at ArtsJournal Nov 17, 2005 Re: Gift by Annie Wagner I know you didn't mean "splinters" literally, Bret, but I'd say Johnson's bits of narrative are more like uncrackable nuts. They seem modeled on koans or parables without referent--they're not so much partial as they are hard and self-contained. The square of light and boxing ring-style blocking (feint, circle, feint) mirror his circular narrative style. If this is truth, it's the kind that doesn't easily give up its meaning.
