Superamas at OtB Sep 19, 2008

by Tania Kupczak

My personal experience with Superamas has been quite intense and immediate. Its been interesting to work the load-in/tech for the show, as well as being one of the local, high-kicking extras for the performance. I got a sense of the piece from seeing some video during rehearsal for the dance extras, and was initially put off a little by the extreme content. However, after watching a run-through in the theater and seeing a majority of the piece (except for when we had to run backstage to get into place) I felt the power and the draw brought on by the focused execution of the performers. The piece is hilariously animated, and engagingly concentrated. I'm excited for the master class on Saturday, and the last few performances to come. - Danny Herter
