A performance/karaoke party to support the creation of convenience, a new dance/music/video work by locust
locust, the Seattle-based dance/music/video performance company, is throwing a bash to raise funds for the creation of convenience, their new dance/music/video work. convenience premieres at On the Boards January 20-22 as part of the Northwest Artist Series, and will tour to venues throughout the West. Sing a Song for locust... is set at Western Bridge, where each room will be filled with one or more of the following items: food, drink, live performance, video installations, and karaoke!
locust (Amy O’Neal, Zeke Keeble, and Ellie Sandstrom, with Troy Miszklevitz and Gabriel Baron) will perform a short excerpt from convenience and present installations drawn from dance/video works both new and old. Come, eat, drink, make your rock star fantasies come true, and get further acquainted with the avant-garde garage band of the Seattle dance scene.
A Seattle-based dance/music/video performance company, locust is the brainchild of musician/composer Zeke Keeble and performer/choreographer Amy O’Neal. Since 2000, locust has created over a dozen commissions, self-produced works, and improvisational performances, both short and evening-length. Their work has been seen at On the Boards, Seattle Art Museum, The Little Theatre, and Velocity, among other venues. locust invites guest performers on a project to project basis, and has worked with some of the most distinctive and talented performers in Seattle; in the case of convenience, these include powerhouse dancer Ellie Sandstrom, and Troy Miszklevitz and Gabriel Baron (the amazing boys from Collaborator).
