12 Minutes Max: A Performance Exhibition
April 9 & 10 at 7pm

Seattle – On the Boards (OtB) is thrilled to present 12 Minutes Max, bringing seven new works across different mediums by regional artists. The latest installment of this experimental performance showcase runs in the OtB Studio Theater, Sunday and Monday, April 9-10. The cost is $7 at the door (no advanced reservations taken).
This installment was curated by dancer/choreographer Jessie Smith
and composer Jherek Bischoff.

Lineup for the April 12 Minutes Max:

§ Being a big supporter of the arts and an artist herself, Councilwoman Dori, a.k.a. Troy Mink, presents 3 attempts at poems throughout the evening (while filtering out her recent separation and drinking problem). (solo performance)
§ Kadee Stotler, with musician Antoinette McNillen, brings a dance piece based upon composed prose, the movement explores potentials, extremes, symbiosis, detachment, and lingering while seamlessly transitioning through solo and duet form. (Dance/music)
§ Inspired by the triumphant spirit that often prevails in the face of tragic circumstances and adversity, Melissa Rolnick choreographs a solo piece beautifully performed by Alona Christman. (dance)
§ Dolphin Julia Trahan performs an original solo work of compelling text and movement. She dances where angels fear to tread and reports back. (theater/dance)
§ Electric Chinese Orchestra (Justin Gerardy & Bill Patton) have sonically transformed your average toys (such as the Speak and Spell) into an orchestra of circuit bending instruments performing an abstract music composition. (music)
§ Recently premiering Reservoir at ConWorks, Jessie Smith’s Dead Bird Movement brings us a newly inspired dance duet with accompaniment by fellow curator Jherek Bischoff. (dance)
§ Implied Violence showcases their movement-based, non-linear, fractured drama “John Wayne,” exploring gender, love, manhood, death, and the workings of live art.
