Something Between an Essay, a Pseudo-Story About Little Robo-Bugs and Another Excuse to Talk About Virtuosity

By Fabien Maltais-Bayda

Choreographer Antony Hamilton’s “Natural Orders” ends with a cluster of small light-sensitive mechanisms gliding about a section of the stage. While from a distance they appear mostly as points of luminescence, they look, up close, a bit like rubber toothbrush heads or many-legged critters.

Intertextual Review: Dana Michel, Yellow Towel

By Fabien Maltais-Bayda

If Yellow Towel is an experiment in identity, it is one that imagines identity through the fragmentary, the sensorial, the experiential.

“It’s all to get me to a different place.”

By Fabien Maltais-Bayda, Victoria McKenzie

While scrawling notes in mid-performance darkness, I sometimes cling to words.
