After a whirlwind few weeks of putting text with movement, building green screens, and working audio magic, the Môj Gidget team is hitting the road for an micro mini international tour! This weekend we're performing at On the Boards' NW New Works Festival and on Tuesday we're hitting the boards closer to home as part of Sawdust Collector's new works series. Deets on both shows below.
NW New Works Festival Weekend 2 Studio Showcase: June 16-18 | On the Boards, 100 W Roy Street, Seattle, WA
Linda Austin Dance: a world, a world — (Un)Made Chapter 3 (Dance | Portland)
Sandbags, headphones, a moveable stair unit, and five dancers in a performative interrogation of the borders of the self; the push-pull between autonomy and “groupness”.
Ella Mahler: Really, it’s this. (Dance | Seattle)
Two dancers sort through any and all strategies in their search for “this” – that ever changing, perhaps never arriving solution or answer.
Julie Hammond: Môj Gidget (Theater | Vancouver, BC)
A California-born Jew travels to a landlocked country to learn to surf. Pop music, dentistry, and a family story that can’t be told.
Mother Tongue: < sic > (Performance | Seattle)
Moving through strange worlds an alien and a believer seek refuge, an artifact, and understanding.
Sawdust Collector | New Works | June 20th, 9:30pm, Gold Saucer Studio (207 W Hasting Street, Vancouver, BC)
An evening of various artists presenting new works and works in progress.
