LEIMAYblog // Reflections on Becoming by LEIMAY member Andrea Jones

A process… it signifies an eventual change. There is movement and evolution: a flowing current of electricity. Even in supposed stillness, there is movement: a humming, buzzing, vibrating energy. Energy that is active. Energy that is latent. It lies hidden, dormant within the organism. Fighting, struggling against the cocoon of the flesh. Propels us towards the next stage of existence: towards annihilation, towards realization.

 

To become something other than what you already…

PROCESS // Meat & Light: Inside & Out with the Night Bears

I sat in on the Night Bears' three day residence at the Red Room, part of Horse Trade Theater.  Over this period, we discussed machines, bodies, and ate Indian food.  In an attempt to document this process, Sophia and I decided to link photos and words in a…

VIDEO // Paradisiac Bestiary

 

"Paradisiac bestiary" is exploring various realms of the biblical sin, focusing on totemic elements and also on the christian symbol of the apple as the main epic pretext for the escape from the garden of Eden. Reinterpreting the fall from paradise using pagan ritualistic masks, the four characters challenge their identities as they're planning to be their…

ESSAY // The Performances of Odyssey Works: Toward an Audience-Centered Art

The Performances of Odyssey Works: Toward an Audience-Centered Art

by Abraham Burickson

 

What would happen if an artist made art based entirely on his knowledge of his audience?  What would the artist have to do to create an environment where his work was fully received and felt by that audience?  How…

PERCEPTION // Findlay/Sandsmark // fractured bones/let's get lost

Probably the first thing one would notice walking into findlay//sansmark's new piece would be the row of programmers lined up in front of the stage, wearing costumes and foil hats.  Or perhaps it was the small tower of aged computer monitors playing loops of the set's design.  Either way, the…

PERCEPTION // Esther Kläs at MoMA PS1

One’s typical reading and research on Esther Kläs would lead to a discussion over self-generated sculptural work, the fluidity of her creative process, and an overarching sense that Kläs was born to be a sculptor.  This visit inside of the artist’s work will not aim to discuss the merits of her sculptural process.  Stepping…

INTERVIEW // Time Traveling with Thunder Horse Video

 

Time traveling has long been reserved for characters in disjointed films or conceptual beings that have the ability to revisit past and future events as if they were a…

A Run

To know that we will have money to produce a performance run is comforting. To know that this support is coming from our friends and fans is an even greater comfort. It is good to feel like you are not just scraping by and making do with what you have- to feel like you can have the track shoes deigned for long distance and not house slippers to go…

poem for rehearsal training

Everyday I die, everyday I'm born



From scrubbing a swimming pool, I fall asleep wearily

Now I start scrubbing with a remaining puddle

Surrounded with a white wall

I find myself to be the swimming pool itself

And…
