Arts I Just Blogged the Boards
You can read my throw-thoughts-at-a-webpage, see-if-they-stick review of On The Boards’ Northwest New Works Festival Studio Series, Weekend 2 (whew!) review right here.
Long story short: I loved Alex Martin (of Better Biscuit Dance) and her little brown dress. And I want to publish the link to her webpage, which is (mais oui) at littlebrowndress.com. Even though I don’t like reductive artist’s statements (especially artist’s statements about consumerism) nearly as much as I like (or like to hate) the art itself, this one, in which Martin explains her project of wearing the same dress for 365 days straight, has a blog and lots of pictures and an invitation to the undressing party. Which takes place July 7. I’m gonna try and be there. (In my new jeans, probably. I’m sorry.)
More dance! I just went to 10 Tiny Dances at CHAC. It was really fun. I highly recommend the conceit, if not every last one of the results. If you’re in Portland, you can see 10TD at the Doug Fir next week.
Also, at 10 Tiny Dances, I spied a most unique being. It was The Ideal Audience Member. More about this later.
