Standing Room Only

  • SUCCESS!!! The show was excellent!In case you missed it, here’s a taste of what went down
  • – A smashing dance performance by the Banana Splitz, complete with 60’s beach grooves, incredible costumes made by expert seamstress Lenae Day, and an enormous pink foam sandcastle.

– Maryanne Miyashiro held it down long-term in her mini living room, getting ready for a night out in slow mo whilst pounding Miller High Life in alarming quantities

– Tim Kenney, Aimee Biggerstaff, and Maryann performed a semi-improv melodrama in 4 acts titled “If All of Us Keep Talking, One of Us Will Have Something to Say”, centered around 1 story retold 4 times at increasingly loud volumes, all the while pounding more High Life.

– Niko Ritter put on a sick show in a side room that involved black lights, neon masking tape, beat boxing, a harmonica, some spoken word, belly dancing, and lots of glow in the dark body paint. It was awesome. And weird. Awesomely weird.

– 3 sound pods set up by Aimee, Kelly Bjork, and Megan Harmon. Aimee’s pod housed a tape recorder, headphones, and a wall of pockets holding tapes of rando conversation Aimee recorded. Most of the recordings were of all of us during the many pre-show work sessions we had at Tim and Aimee’s apartment. Kelly’s pod had a comfy chair where one could take a load off and relax to the sultry sounds of her uncle wax lyrical about conspiracy theory, government spy cameras, and how he is probably a prophet. The walls of Megan’s pod were silkscreened with rando snippets of conversation she overheard and remembered to write down.

– A kickass double-mirrored photo installation by Adam McRae (2 mirrors facing each other– definitely messes with your eyes more than a little bit)

– 11 human exoskeletons made out of saran wrap and packing tape constructed by Tim Kenney

  • 3 crucified ceramic squirrels covered in real cat fur made by Aimee Biggerstaff.

    I have no business wearing this much soul on my soles… but Imma do it anyway
  • If Raggedy Ann was an exotic breed of Peafowl, I'm fairly sure this is what she would look like.
