Thanks to our bloggers for this event, Chris Clayton, Bret Fetzer & Amy O'Neal!
Chris Clayton is the Assistant Editor at Seattle magazine. He enjoys orange juice, rock music and spelling the adjective “old-time” as “olde-tyme.” He does not enjoy mock turtlenecks and the humorless bastards who wear them. If you happen to have a great sense of humor and also enjoy sporting a mock-T (as they call it in the apparel industry) every once in a while, he apologizes. There’s an exception to every rule.
Amy O'Neal is a performer, choreographer, and teacher based in Seattle. She and musician/composer Zeke Keeble form the dance/music collaborative company, locust, /fontfamily>and have created over a dozen new works in nearly 4 years. She teaches contemporary dance technique and funk regularly at Velocity Dance Center and is a guest artist teacher of choreography, modern dance history, and modern repertory at the Washington Academy of Performing Arts. As a performer, she worked with the Pat Graney Co for 3 years on the premiere and international tour of "Tattoo" and was a 6 year member of Mary Sheldon Scott/Jarrad Powell Performance. She has received scholarships to various festivals nationally and internationally, and has spent many months in Europe working with amazing dancer personalities. Amy has been the recipient of several choreographic commissions in the Seattle area for both dance and theater. She has received funding from the Seattle Arts Commission, the international DanceWEB scholarship, the Mary Levine Fund, Artist Trust, and generous private donors. Amy holds a BFA in dance from Cornish College of the Arts.
Bret Fetzer writes plays and fairy tales and other odds and ends. He also curates Spin the Bottle, Annex Theatre's monthly late-night variety show, 11 pm on the first Friday of every month.
