Available now: Beth Gill | Electric Midwife
Electric Midwife plays on symmetry and illusion as the performers pull the intimate audience into a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of movement and color weaving throughout the space with highly structured, minimalist dance.
A Queens-based artist making work in NYC, Beth Gill critically examines issues relating to the fields of contemporary dance and performance studies, through an ongoing exploration of aesthetics and perception.
Filmed at the Museum of Human Achievement, commissioned by the Fusebox Festival.
Available now: Tina Satter/Half Straddle | Seagull (Thinking of You)
Tina Satter/Half Straddle considers anew the darkness, beauty, and history of Chekhov’s iconic play The Seagull, taking a personal look at performance, failure, and attempted love. This world premire is “full to the brim with killer talent." (Time Out New York)

In the editing room: Beth Gill | Electric Midwife
OntheBoards.tv flew down to Austin, TX to capture this intimate dance performance by NYC choreographer Beth Gill. Read about her work at the Fusebox Festival where it all happened.
Electric Midwife is viewed by an intentionally small audience of 14 people each night who sit directly center, opposite the dance, in order to best experience the symmetry. With each touring opportunity that the piece receives I try to reimagine the seating in a way, which can suite the new theater yet, honors the original concept of the dance.
Coming up Next: Half Straddle/Tina Satter Seagull (Thinking of you)
Get a peek at Seagull, the theater performance we filmed while we were in NYC at the 2013 Coil Festival. Look for the full performance next month!
