Visual Art Wynne Greenwood at OtB

On the Boards just announced its 2008-09 season, and I noticed Wynne Greenwood is on the roster. Greenwood used to be Tracy in the “band” Tracy + the Plastics—or, truth was, Greenwood was all three band members. Tracy appeared live and the other two (Nikki and Cola) appeared on video (played by Greenwood). They were great.
That performance was March 31, 2007, in Olympia. Since then, the band broke up. (Greenwood took herself out to dinner to celebrate, and uncannily, the restaurant seated her at a table for four.) Greenwood lives in Seattle now, and this winter, she had a solo show at Susanne Vielmetter Gallery in LA, for which she made this video (note the instrumental karaoke), shot inside the installation.
Here’s what the announcement says she’s doing at On the Boards a year from now:
WYNNE GREENWOOD | Sister Taking Nap Wed – Sun | April 15 - 19, 2009 World Premiere Best known for her schizophrenic portrayals of 3 band members in Tracy + the Plastics, Wynne Greenwood embarks on a new creative phase fusing sculpture, installation and music into an intimate performance environment. Sister Taking Nap is a one-act about human evolution where objects such as an animal cage, a suitcase and a TV double as small stages for posing the question: What must we give up in order to survive? Greenwood’s art and performance works have been shown at Reena Spaulings Fine Arts (NYC), The Kitchen (NYC), Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), PICA (Portland), Walker Art Center and the Whitney Biennial (NYC).
It’s on my calendar.
