Solo Performance Festival offers 30 solo shows

by Miryam Gordon - SGN A&E Writer

Solo Performance
Festival #4:
Can You Get My Back?
Theatre Off Jackson
Through April 3


This festival just keeps getting bigger. SPF 4: Can You Get My Back? is the largest yet of the solo performance festival series, curated by Keira McDonald. You have over 30 different shows to choose from, plus a monologue slam, over the course of a month at Theatre Off Jackson. Solo performance is quite the challenge. All the attention is focused on one person, who has all the responsibility.

On March 6, four of the performances were showcased. Pipa is a dance story told by Minneapolis native Tamara Ober. Pipa is a young girl who journeys through confusing and magical streets to the store, loses all her money, but is able to return home safely. Ober demonstrates a great sense of physical security.

Traveling Panties is a reverie by Mike Harris of a hitchhiking trip. It's cheeky, irreverent, and a bit raw, but still funny.

Not. Stable. At all. starts out funny, as Paul Budraitis tries to scare you into paranoia, and gets increasingly dark. You can't be sure what comes next. Hang on for an interesting ride.

The Price Is Not Right has Carrie McIntyre transformed into a 73-year-old woman in Arkansas being interviewed for a sociology class video. McIntyre has a great South Dakotan accent and includes tiny touches of funny reality, like yelling at her unseen husband about the dogs. Her rhythm is right on.

Some of the pieces feel more improved than others, as some have already had performances at other local venues and are very polished. Subprime had a run last year, and Norman Bell is returning to teach us how to sell real estate. Ki Gottberg has performed Frontier: Valley of the Shadow, an autobiographical life review, in several venues. Gin Hammond has been developing Returning the Bones and has performed at Richard Hugo House and in Los Angeles recently. This is another opportunity to catch these pieces. There are pieces by veteran performers like Peggy Platt and Lisa Koch, and there's a notable new piece from Billie Wildrick about Samson (the biblical figure) and what led him to his choices. Lots to choose from.

Going to http://www.brownpapertickets.com/producer/1693 will link you to what performances play on what nights, and then you can go to that link and see short descriptions of the night's entertainment. If you like this kind of innovation, plan to go several times in the next month.
