Recorded on September 13, 2013 after Velocity Guest Artist Daniel Linehan’s performance of Not About Everything and The Karaoke Dialogues: Seattle Trial at Velocity Dance Center in Seattle, WA (September 12-14, 2013).
This post-show conversation was part of the Velocity Open Forum: The Good Life, a week of supper clubs, book clubs, workshops + community conversations with a focus on ethics and sustainability, taking place alongside Linehan’s performances.
In this interview, Velocity’s Executive/Artistic Director Tonya Lockyer asks Daniel about Not About Everything and poses a question to the audience that Daniel brings up in the solo:”What are the thoughts he made you think?” Responses range from outer space, hypnotism, screen savers to “multi-humanism.” Listen to the full interview here.
Daniel Linehan is recognized internationally for being on the cutting edge of experimental dance and a celebrated a new voice in contemporary performance. Born in Olympia, WA, Linehan had not performed in this region since graduating from the University of Washington in 2004.
