Prairie Grasses Burning with Reverie Apr 2, 2010

I was healed and delivered tonight at the Morgan Thorson/ Low performance at On the Boards. It was easily my favorite dance performance of the OTB season. I ended the show with a warm smile and cleansed of my transgressions. Don't miss it. You owe yourself something this good. So much of what usually attracts me to contemporary dance are the engaging synthetics of the modern oeuvre. I love the costumes and video projection and experimental/techno/deconstructed soundtracks. I love the intentional hyperbole of it all.

where we belong. Apr 2, 2010

After Thursday night's performance of Heaven I sat with Spencer Moody and a small group of friends at Mecca and we traded thoughts on the collaboration between Low and Thorsen. Everyone agreed that the integration of musicians moving and dancers vocalizing was natural and seamless. More than that I was impressed by how empathetically involved the male musician, Sparhawk, was with the other performers on stage, and how clearly removed and sidelined the female musician, Parker, was- at times even 'taking a break' from the action on stage to catch up on some needlework.

Previews of Heaven Apr 1, 2010

Here's what people are daying about Heaven as we get ready for opening night:
"Her dancers, dressed in white (are they culty or angelic?), move in two modes—slow/meditative and violent/ecstatic—and will do some singing. Low members Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker will do some dancing. Prepare to be mesmerized." - Stranger's Line Out
