Scott/Powell | Mapping out geography Nov 16, 2007

Scott/Powell Performance’s new work, Geography, is about our global landscape. It is about the human erosion to the global ecology. It is about humanity limiting itself, crowding itself, damaging itself. It is about the perilous obstacles that lie just beyond the fragile confines of the body. It is about drowning Polar Bears. I know this because I was told this on OtB’s website. And, while I appreciate knowing the source subject for this engaging and exhausting effort, it isn’t immediately evident in the viewing, although that doesn't detract from it's strength.

Scott/Powell's Unnatural Geographic Nov 16, 2007

I was eagerly anticipating Geography and I expected it would be easy to write about. Not so: I’m tempted just to say,  “Go see it, as often as you can, ” and leave it at that. But here are a few impressions: Choreographer Molly Scott has said that Geography was inspired by changes in the environment, especially the way crowding affects us physically and emotionally. I wouldn’t necessarily have guessed this if I hadn’t been told, but the theme has certainly provided a superabundance of choreographic ideas.

Scott/Powell: Full Frontal Intensity Nov 16, 2007

I’m just home for an evening at  “On The Boards, ” where I saw a highly anticipated show, Geography by Scott/Powell Performance. I was first introduced to the group’s work last Valentine’s Day at  “Ten Tiny Valentine’s Dances, ” where I thought Powell’s well-crafted score perfectly accompanied Scott’s duet. Tonight, I was also anxious for more exposure to Robert Campbell video design, who’s work I first saw at The Henry Art Gallery/ 911 Media’s New Works Laboratory Piece with Yuki Nakamura.

Scott/Powell Geography Nov 16, 2007

Toward the beginning of Scott/Powell's new work, an ethereal green ensemble jumps into and out of an implied space. Resembling waterbugs, they dance and flit among and around each other, but not exactly *with* each other. It appears to be a microcosm of some kind, a busy colony at work. Two parallel panels of light reinforce the feeling that we're peering through a microscope at miniscule life darting around on a slide--their movements both limited and defined by their boundaries.
