      • Half Straddle/Tina Satter | Seagull (Thinking of you)

        718 Plays / / 0 Comments

        AVAILABLE NOW AT WWW.ONTHEBOARDS.TV Writer/director Tina Satter draws on Chekhov’s letters, translations, and perverse sense of comedy to consider anew the darkness, beauty, and history of Chekhov’s iconic play The Seagull and its resonances with her Half Straddle ensemble. Seagull (Thinking of you) is a personal look at performance, failure, and attempted love — ultimately an unexpected meditation on why we ever try to say something out loud. With a Russian folk metal-influenced score. “Full to the brim with killer talent … launching a particularly coordinated goal-line drive to a new feminist form” Time Out New York

            "SECRET NOTEBOOKS" With a month off in the summer of 2011, and amazing collaborators who wanted to help, Half Straddle set out to make their first-ever rap song and accompanying video. Playing off the idioms of the genre, Half Straddle’s rad girl rappers drop push-ups with no knees, late nights with Soledad O’Brien, and references to their bangs as a knowingly ridiculous vocabulary for throwing shade, all set in a lusciously drenched visual realm and accompanied by deep beats that need to be played really loud for full effect. Vocals by Erin Markey + Emily Emily Davis Music + Production by Bobby McElver Video by Michael De Angelis Lyrics + Direction by Tina Satter Featuring: Jess Barbagallo, Eliza Bent, Becca Blackwell, Nikki Calonge, Emily Emily Davis, Chris Giarmo, Erin Markey, Kourtney Rutherford, Pete Simpson, Julia Sirna-Frest www.halfstraddle.com / halfstraddle@gmail.com

              On Sunday January 20, 2013, Culturebot hosted a Long Table on The Politics of Cultural Production In Theater as part of The Under The Radar Festival. It was inspired in part by this essay: http://www.culturebot.org/2013/02/15952/the-politics-of-cultural-production-in-theater-or-devise-this-part-iii/ The past few years have seen an increased level of discussion about “devised” theater in traditional play circles. Is all this talk merely a trend or a real shift in the American Theater landscape? Words like devised, ensemble and collaborative are used interchangeably to describe a wide variety of practices and aesthetics – but what are we really talking about, where did these practices come from and how does practice inform content? Join a group of artists, writers and scholars for a discussion of the past, present and future of non-traditional theater making.
