Winners and Losers
Theater artists and longtime friends Marcus Youssef and James Long sit at a table and play an invented game called winners and losers. In it, they name people, places or things— Pamela Anderson, microwave ovens, their fathers, Goldman Sachs, Mexico — pronouncing each one winner or loser. Their game turns personal as they mercilessly dissect each other's families, privileges and class backgrounds. The competition quickly heats up, resulting in an intimate and blisteringly honest performance.
OntheBoards.tv in the New York Times
"One of the most innovative is OntheBoards.tv, a four-year-old venture of the Seattle organization On the Boards, which presents experimental dance and theater. A team of videographers works with selected artists to produce high-definition, thoughtfully framed films of their work. The result, so far, is a small but growing library of gorgeously shot performances recorded at On the Boards and elsewhere: the Fusebox Festival in Austin, Tex.; Performance Space 122 in New York; and the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art in Oregon."
