Brooklyn, NY – If you’re looking for neatness, security, a corps de ballet, empathy, or hope, do not come
to this show. the feath3r theory | Raja Kelly and Ami Garmon / Squint Productions are only prepared to
offer you the raw, uncensored, director’s cut, of a highly rambunctious, multidisciplinary performance
about deceit, hopelessness, worry, confusion, and relentless desire.
Kelly and Garmon give to you B L U E as one of many in-development iterations from a series that will
mature into a final staging of MUTT - _ _ _ _ and other 4-letter words. This new work promises to be that
plane ride you’ll never forget, that shot-to-the-head, that time you got lost, your bad trip and the first, last
and every lover in between. Leave your kids at home, and join Ami, Raja, and 11 other characters as they
present an excerpt of their own never-ending story.
*B L U E is a work-in-progress as part of a larger project, MUTT-_ _ _ _ and other 4 letter words, which will be created and
premiered in Berlin during the summer of 2013.
About the Artists
Ami Garmon/Squint Productions is an American artist who lives and works in Berlin. She had trained
as a dancer since childhood; in 1988, she left the U.S. for Paris, where she began a career that would
consistently—though always differently—keep her on the shared borders of dance, performance art, and
theatre. Raja Feather Kelly | the feath3r theory lives between New York, NY and Seattle, WA as a company
member with David Dorfman Dance, zoe | juniper, RaceDance, Reggie Wilson/ Fist and Heel Performance
Group, and PEARSONWIDRIG Dance Theater.
Garmon and Feather met in 2009 at the ImPulsTanz International Dance Festival in Vienna, Austria where
Garmon led a workshop “Biology and Biography” of which Feather was a student. This same summer,
Feather would offer dramaturgical assistance for the creation and completion of Garmon’s ‘Patience and
Hunger’/Another Fucking Solo an HFK supported project that premiered April 15th, 2010.
Together again, Feather and Garmon share a focus on writing and performance, precision of movement
and paradoxes of meaning. Their work together explores new performance methods and exploits the
universality in autobiography, like Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman” or Trajal Harrell’s “We Are”.
Their quest is to communicate and share, empathize or transform. The work of Garmon and Feather has a
goal to exist as not only performance but as audiobook, photographs, film and video, and novella.
