We are performing Perseus again soon at the Rainier Beach Art Walk on Sept 17, thanks to SEED Arts Seattle and 4Culture Site Specific. The event happens from 11 to 3 that day and we don’t have times yet, but will let you know.
Then, on Sept 29 at 6pm, we will be performing scenes from domestic variations in the Nord Alley in Pioneer Square as part of Alley-Up!, presented by the Alley Network Project. We’re excited about that for a couple of reasons. 1) Because it’s a really cool event. 2)Because it’s being shot by Goldie Jones for a web vid about us by Subversionz Media and 3) Because Jill and I will be joined in the air by the remarkable Sage Cushman, Seattle newcomer and recent graduate of the National Institute of Circus Arts in Australia. Whew! So come on out and see what happens when we set up our apartment in an alley.
We have more news brewing and some traveling on the horizon (hello major fundraising), but that’s all for now. We are interested to see how the rehearsal process with Sage shapes up and excited about bringing her on board for this show. And don’t worry, Bridget is still around. 🙂
Ok now Liza, go to bed…
Hey! Ok. We have recovered from the exhausting experience that was domestic variations. Mostly. It was our most ambitious work yet, and we are proud of ourselves for what we accomplished artistically; taking huge risks, and expanding our vision. We got excellent feedback from our fans, peers, and community. I feel like ultimately it was a valuable and explosive step in our creative evolution. We are hoping to remount it in a few other cities, and perhaps in Seattle agin in Fall of 2012. We love it for what is was, and what it is going to be. It’s life is just beginning. Us artists… we’re never quite satisfied, are we? But I feel like as a company, we’re making peace with that.
In the meantime, the next few weeks will be consumed with redesigning ticktock vs. Perseus (performed on a 21 foot tall kinetic sculpture by Miguel Edwards) for our appearance at Not to Scale, the Lo-Fi Summer Arts Festival at the Smoke Farm. Smoke Farm is a magical place located outside Arlington, Washington, in the north fork of the Stillaguamish river. It used to be a dairy farm, and was purchased from the Smoke Brothers in 1993. It is now part of the Rubicon Foundation, and dedicated to supporting art, science, and philosophy through creative and community work. We love to spend time there, and this festival is THE best thing you will attend this Summer. If you love us, you MUST come and spend time with us in this place. Please. The artist roster is insane (72 visual and performing artists!) and includes, DK Pan, Awesome, and Titanium Sporkestra, just to name a few. Plus, our dear friend Keely Isaac-Meehan, artistic director of Manifold Motion, will be performing a new solo work! w00t!
Hope to see you soon.
