My Name is a Blackbird

Fuzzy and I recently saw Molly Shanahan’s My Name is a Blackbird , a Modern dance solo performance piece at the Building Stage, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A research experiment of the movement and emotion within herself, Shanahan’s Blackbird is not for everyone–while I found it to be captivating, if I were not a fan of the genre, it would be difficult to watch and understand. However, nightly after each performance, there is a moderated panel discussion so that viewers can ask questions about the process, choices, music, costumes, etc– an addition to the evening that I found particularly helpful and interesting. My Name is a Blackbird runs for only one more weekend, so get tickets while you can.

    I’d been wondering what she’s been up to since leaving SNL.
