Thoughts on a talkback for Stairway to Stardom

  • Posted by Julia Levine

From our Resident Dramaturg Pete McCabe, following the September 13th performance of Stairway to Stardom:

The theater artist Tadashi Suzuki asserts that while audiences do perceive theater through their eyes and ears, their primary experience of it is through their sense of touch. Nowhere is this more evident than in dance. Dance enthusiasts are virtually uniform in their emotional connection to the experience. Paradoxically, the creation of dance involves a rigorous intellectual framework that is often silent and invisible during the performance. To hear it from Choreographers Deborah Lohse, Annie B. Parson, and Amanda Szeglowski, who also use words with an equal rigor as their choreography in their artwork, they use techniques like breaking the experience into five sections, each one its own individual section and part of a larger arc; using a framework that allows for seeming tangential details, but all eventually connect to that through line. Not for nothing, these are among the very techniques that Aristotle outlines as to what makes a good play, leaving me to wonder: what is the difference between a play and a dance?

Ontological Puppet Show: The Toy Becomes A Weapon

  • Oct 26 — Oct 28

A seething experimental landscape of bizarre possibility, this anarchist nihilist philosophy puppet show has toured Europe and the Americas, from Oslo to Buenos Aires, from gutters to galleries, morphing slowly like the singing of a whale. Death stalks the garden and unmasked beings belch forth inverted offspring as God devours the sun.

No Tomorrow

  • Sep 7 — Oct 28

Death is inevitable. Every living thing meets its demise at some point. Different cultural customs have been developed to honor and mourn the dead – some elaborate and ornate, while others somber and contemplative, and even sometimes jubilant and joyous. The artists involved in “No Tomorrow” investigate and embrace the beauty of death as a movement for rebirth, contemplation and facing the infinite stillness.
