Former Pina Bausch dancer and student Diana Szeinblum makes her Seattle debut with Alaska, a sensual and fierce dance theater performance. The Buenos Aires choreographer uses the skills of her outstanding 4 member company and a style reminiscent of OtB alumni such as Crystal Pite to create a beautiful spectacle that undulates between uneasy stillness and
violent frenzy.

One thought on “It’s such an icy feeling….(Diana Szeinblum / Alaska at OTB)

  1. what to think of this performance (which was good); nothing as macho as a gay man? I don’t the dancers orientation by the way, but due to some sexual tension, and with the women often placed as rag dolls or appeared as mallable corpses when partner dancing with the males…it just popped into my head to describe certain aspects.. The males together had some chemistry and some violence as well, but it was much more engaged. The ensamble dancing was perfect.
    Original “Sakamoto-esque Urban” music felt like a soundtrack but dancers and music matched perfectly
