Object of Her Affection - Fall Studio 2013 at REDCAT

Object of Her Affection

A woman who falls in love with inanimate objects discovers that the Golden Gate Bridge has been cheating on her in Marsian De Lellis’ latest table-top puppetry creation. Since her first love-affair — with a baby blanket — Andrea Lowe’s heightened affection has led to a complicated relationship history. Directed by Michele Spears, Object of Her Affection uses puppetry and object theater to explore the oversimplification of sexual identity and attraction, tracing Andrea’s unending search for true love.

Virtuosic dancers share intimate or volatile moments, floating in a shifting landscape of veils, shadows, and changing light, in acclaimed choreographer Rosanna Gamson’s kinetic investigation of the neuroscience of dreams. Performed by six dancers, Still is rich with tender and violent movement, explosive athleticism and stunning moments of stillness. The action is set against an eclectic sonic landscape of viola, cello, and violin music ranging from French 17th-century court composer Marin Marais, to new world post-rock band instrumentals.

As the first instruments capable of creating and manipulating noises through entirely mechanical processes, the "noise intoners" can be considered to be the original analog synthesizer, and ancestors to the electronic synthesizers used today.

Mx. Is My Prefix

A high priestess of performance and one of the sharpest wits of the era, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond cuts an indelible swath with vivid charms. Hailing from Maryland, Justin's transformation to a specifically queer performance artist began in San Francisco with a role in Kate Bornstein's play Hidden: A Gender. Kiki & Herb, Bond's demented cabaret act spawned with musician Kenny Mellman, ran for years downtown in New York, toured the UK, played Carnegie Hall (twice), the Sydney Opera House and was Tony-nominated for Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway. Since retiring Kiki, Justin has focused on writing original songs, many of them included on the forthcoming album Dendrophile, produced by Thomas "Doveman" Bartlett, which will be released April 4. An original musical, Arts & Crafts, co-written with Sandra Bernhard, also premieres at Joe's Pub in March.
