Taking advantage of the opportunity afforded by a visit to Portland by the peripatetic and amazing Bob Eisen, PWNW puts together a mid-summer dance outing comprising three solos by veterans Eisen, Gregg Bielemeier, and PWNW director Linda Austin, plus a duet by the Leah Wilmoth and Sada Naegelin.
Linda Austin performs "yes, AND", a meditative solo of tenderness towards the aging body, a tactile apprehension of the world to hand. An intimate drama of gesture and sensation unfolds, heightened by the potentials and consequences of Lindas bracingly unorthodox use of everyday objects.
Gregg Bielemeier performs a piece titled "Hello, my name is Gregory Michael Christopher Bielemeier, first eliminated from the Spelling Bee and last chosen for the Team."
Bob Eisens RESEVIC is a rigorously performed and constructed dance work that continues his ongoing exploration of form, movement vocabulary and humor in dance making. It also deals with the fact that Bob is 70 years old. Sound by Phillip Corner, edited by Bob Eisen and Michael Caskey.
"I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra" is a dance choreographed and performed by Sada Naegelin and Leah Wilmoth. They are joined by dancers Alanna Marguritte, Fern Wiley and Abby Nace, with pianist Charlie Copeland. Sada and Leahs movement explores compositions that are funny, sincere, strange, and fleshy. They represent, respect, and reject female archetypes. They distort and experiment with technique and pop culture. There is deep darkness and bright, shimmering light. They thank the one and only Carrie Fisher for providing the title of this work.
