In Performance: Stew and Heidi Rodewald – The Negro Problem

The Negro Problem September 9th, 2017 Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, TBA:17 By Eben Hoffer As The Negro Problem began, Stew walked out to the every edge of the stage, beyond the lights, slammed a chair down, and straddled it from behind. In so many words, he said, “If you are the kind of person who gets offended by art, please move yourself to an aisle seat so you can leave without disturbing anybody else”. He waited for people to move, and said he was doing as much. It was a daring, even aggressive, way to start an evening. Earlier that morning, Stew and a group of young African-American artists attending a talk on The Negro Problem had gotten into a heated verbal exchange, over the politics of Stew’s discourse on Blackness within the dominantly-white Portland audience. Was the d...

In Performance: Takahiro Yamamoto – Direct Path To Detour: Single Focus

Direct Path To Detour: Single Focus August 9th, 2017 Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, TBA:17 By Eben Hoffer Direct Path To Detour: Single Focus is a solo iteration of Takahiro Yamamoto’s larger dance work by the same (un-subtitled) name. This piece, the solo, took place in PICA’s NW Portland space. The audience is seated in chairs and on cushions in a wide circle around the space; a ring of LED votives describes a performance space at the center. The lighting and sound artists are seated in the audience ring, with an energy of witnessing as well as work. On Saturday evening, the piece began with a sort of orchestral tuning of the technical elements: a wash of digitally processed archival audio, static, and glitch fragments filled the room, cutting from tone to tone like a channel-su...

In Performance: Becca Blackwell, They, Themself, and Schmerm

They, Themself, and Schmerm Becca Blackwell TBA:17 and Artists Repertory Theatre September 8, 2017 Becca Blackwell’s They, Themself, and Schmerm is a one-person show embracing and challenging the stand-up form. The hour-long performance starts off with a 90’s tinged video montage introducing Becca through childhood photos and pool-side interviews. Becca then enters the space from behind the audience launching into a frenzied series of exaggerated physical vignettes that has the audience immediately chortling. As the audiences guffaws, the lights shift and Becca centers themself, removing a layer of performativity and making fun of what they just did. Each of the 3 entrances/reveals swiftly brings the audience closer to a more authentic and vulnerable Becca and initiates an evening of confr...

In Performance: Opening Night – Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (PICA TBA 2017)

Opening Night of Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s 2017 Time Based Arts festival kicked off with a performance by ground-breaking artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. As guests connected with old friends and new ones and waited in line for food and/or drink (from festival-friendly food trucks and bar stands), they were treated to P-Orridge’s brilliant spell. Sitting in a plush white chair that was draped with he/r purse, P-Orridge treated the industrial space’s audience to a next-level armchair analysis of the state of our world, playing with statements about identity, gender, and society at large like “Humanity is the virus,” “Identity is theft,” and “Remember when you wake up in the morning, there’s no reason to be the person you were yesterday.” A large projection screen added to th...

In Performance: Will Rawls, I make me [sic]

I make me [sic] Will Rawls at PICA as part of TBA:17 September 8 & 9, 2017 Space. A blinking cursor in a blank document projected on the wall. A garment rack. A balloon resembling one of Andy Warhol’s silver clouds. An imposing wall of letters and symbols organized into a kind of hybrid, linguistic-pictorial QWERTY keyboard. A strip of white marley stretching across two walls of the room, interrupted by a small gap. Text. “Introductions.” Alphabetical lists: Abramovic, answers, auction. Brown (Trisha), black, bleach blond, bland. Cursor, currere (to run). Personal histories emerge out of these lists. Growing up in an Amway household. Adolescent sexual awakening by way of Greek statuary. Adventures as an extra in a Will Smith zombie film. Movement. Circles, recurring again and again, in...

In Performance: Michael Clark Company, to a simple, rock ‘n’ roll . . . song. (Tanz im August)

to a simple, rock ‘n’ roll . . . song. Michael Clark Company Tanz im August, Haus der Berliner Festspiele August 17-19, 2017 The deliberate, elegant precision of the title of this latest piece from British dance mainstay Michael Clark is apt. Over three distinct acts, Clark moves us from Erik Satie, minimalist turn-of-the-century composer, to legendary rocker Patti Smith, to the late great hero David Bowie, with stark, affectless movement scores repeating, turning, and accumulating into a euphoric spectacle that is anything but simple. Performed by a spellbinding, seemingly superhuman company of dancers, to a simple, rock ‘n’ roll . . . song. presents an history of the twentieth century as defined by music, technological innovation, and–of course–sex, drugs, and roc...
