Event

Oregon Performance Lab- SPILL & PREDATOR SONGSTRESS
SPILL
Written and directed by Leigh Fondakowski
Based on interviews conducted by: Leigh Fondakowski and Reeva Wortel
Dramaturgy by: Sarah lambert, Kelli Simpkins, and Reeva Wortel
Art work by: Reeva Wortel

On April 20, 2010, the BP-owned oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded off the shores of Louisiana, killing 11 and sending millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. With a dramatic story spun from hundreds of personal interviews with oil industry employees, fishermen, politicians, cleanup workers, scientists, and the families of those lost, SPILL probes into a vivid behind-the-news narrative of the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history.

Written and directed by Leigh Fondakowski, the head writer of THE LARAMIE PROJECT and creator of THE PEOPLE'S TEMPLE, SPILL's collection of poignant and deeply personal stories from the Louisiana bayous illustrates where we are as a society and confronts the true human and environmental costs of oil.  SPILL had its world premiere at Louisiana State University's Swine Palace in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in March 2014.

August 14th & 15th at 7PM (Only two Nights)


PREDATOR SONGSTRESS
By Degenerate Art Ensemble
PREDATOR SONGSTRESS is a world that appears on the surface to be a classic realm of a totalitarian state, but beneath this facade Degenerate Art Ensemble is re-appropriating the technological tools of oppression and control such as surveillance, interrogation and data mining and using them to create an environment designed to divine the secrets of the human voice.  This work deals with personal power - taking our own action in the face of the reality around us and investigating personal power in our particular time and place.

The world premiere of PREDATOR SONGSTRESS will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco in November followed by its Northwest premiere at On The Boards in Seattle this December.  PREDATOR SONGSTRESS is being created with the support of Creative Capital, MAP Fund and New Music USA.

Seattle based Degenerate Art Ensemble makes performance inspired by punk, comics, cinema, nightmares and fairy tales driven by live music and our own style of visceral movement theater and dance.  These are not dance pieces, or concerts or gallery installations, but immersive meditations that use light, sound, music, movement and space as tools to strip away the waking world to reveal an alternate reality inhabited by constantly transforming characters.

August 28th & 29th at 7PM (Only two Nights)
