Date Has Passed Merrill Wright Mainstage Theater
*PLEASE NOTE 5PM START TIME SUN, OCT 12.
Two of the co-creators of legendary Seattle ensemble Run/Remain return to OtB with a next-generation familial mash-up of film, music, theater, and dance.
Murphy and Lachow continue their 25-year artistic collaboration in a performance featuring longtime friends and (now grown-up) children. Their deceptively nonchalant dance moves, nouvelle vague aesthetic, moody films, pointe shoes, and nods to Chekhov transcend the generational divide in a charmingly clever package laced with optimism and melancholy.
FEATURING Megan Murphy, Gregg Lachow, 15-year-old Charlie Lachow, Marissa Niederhauser, Annette Toutonghi, Ezra Dickinson, and Sarah Harlett; with the now-adult musician/composer Maggie Brown and burgeoning rap genius Sam Lachow.
MEGAN MURPHY AND GREGG LACHOW are well-known players in the Seattle performance scene: Lachow for feature length films and film shorts, Murphy for tongue-in-cheek performance and choreography, and both for co-founding the interdisciplinary ensemble Run/Remain. They often work over long periods of time with the same performers, including their own children and family friends. Lachow & Murphy live in NYC.
The Man Who Can Forget Anything was supported through OtB's Performance Production Program.
