    The City swallowed the world. It ate the day and the night. It ate the tides and the seasons. Now there are only seconds and nanoseconds and a constant insatiable GO. Speed is power, status is vertical, and time is literally up. A crack is growing. The shape of time is changing. Only a few can see it. Time Sensitive is a daring new play by Artistic Director Amy Sass, which combines clockwork choreography, rhythmic fugue and ice art into a fantastical tale that urgently asks: How can we control a moment if we constantly crave the next big thing?

    • Monument (excerpt)

      from The Seldoms Added

      Monument is a 50-minute dance theater work that explores the relationship between the human environment and the natural environment, and the extent to which that relationship has become unbalanced. Monument is built around the notion of inadvertent (and in some cases disastrous) human monuments, like the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island that, at its peak, was taller than the Statue of Liberty. Monument follows the voracious, frenzied course of our individual acts of consumption along the one-way ride to the trash-heap. This final destination, the landfill - that accidental social sculpture - looms large in Monument, a physical culmination of desire and expenditure. www.theseldoms.org

        A sickening/extravagant/selfish/fabulous/belligerent duet, the beautifuls exemplifies both the limitless arrogance and endemic ignorance of being young and fabulous. *not suitable for those with an aversion to glitter, glamor, or extreme narcissism

          In the mode of grappling with the issues of the day - as in Stupormarket, our 2011 work about the economic meltdown - Exit Disclaimer: Science and Fiction Ahead is The Seldoms' take on the divisive national debate about climate change. It surveys the many divergent positions ranging from denial, skepticism, and indifference to urgency. Within this heated argument, who is talking, who is being listened to, and who is paying for it?

              This is Kyle Markwalter's final project for the Carleton College Winter '13 Fiction I Cinema and Media Studies course. It explores collaborative construction of a story across media. A song was selected which Kyle deemed told a story. Kyle presented the song to Deborah Tan who choreographed a dance to the song that would tell a story as she defined it. Deborah showed the dance to Kyle who reinterpreted her dance as a filmic story.

                  An excerpt from 'While We Are Human', an hour-long interactive performance experience. Produced by Sapience Dance Collective at the Tashiro-Kaplan building in Pioneer Square, Seattle, in July 2012. Directed by Victoria Jacobs Sets by Willow Fox Music by Nathan Seder Costumes by Amy Weaver Dancing by Victoria Jacobs, Sarah Seder, Lilah Steece and Amy Weaver Filming by David Verkade Video Editing by Victoria Jacobs Original concept for 'Earthbound' by Ariella Brown, with additional choreography by Leslie Hubbard. Re-conceived and performed by Victoria Jacobs While We Are Human, an interactive 360° epic 2 years in its creation, tells the story of a delicate and distracted community of human animals. Connected and supportive at their best, petty and battling at their worst, this piece explores the range of human experience as the chimeric beasts struggle to live together in the confines of the urban jungle. The audience chooses their own point of view in this non-traditional performance space, with freedom to move around and to become part of the action. Original music, moving sets, and giant costumes transform the site into a dream-like world where birds dance with their shadows, the wind takes human form, and a fragile, moth-like woman emerges from a cocoon that is birthed out of a crack in the earth. Earthbound, the introduction to the piece, depicts a woman who is both dirt, tree and human, waking up. It plays with the element of earth-time; time sped up shows mountains rising and falling, canyons splitting and filling, and volcanoes erupting.
