Review: Full Bravado, Booty, and Skill
Courtney Meaker talks about the fall 2012 premiere of Amy O’s work “The Most Innovative, Daring, and Original Piece of Dance/Performance You Will See This Decade” for the Sunbreak.
“Set up as a series of exhibits, Amy O explores how we interact with forms of movement including the YouTube videos and dance expressions that we don’t want to like but totally do anyway. Yes. Even booty dances and stripper poles influence how we approach dance/performance and art in general. Set up with three gorgeous screens for video projections and a small plexiglass stage with neon lights underneath, Amy O commands the space…..In essence, where Amy O shines is in her use of what we commonly think of as either solely erotic or solely artistic. Amy O blurred this wonderfully with her exploration of some of the most sexual forms of dance and showing you how they are artforms.”
