Rachael Lincoln & Leslie Seiters: Long Playing
February 16 - 18, 2024
An award-winning physical duet by seasoned dance artists Rachael Lincoln and Leslie Seiters, Long Playing is an intimate and unfolding landscape of aging, transformation, accidental beauty, and the imperfect shelters we construct to navigate the wilderness of our lives. Dynamic and accessible, the piece invites the audience into a long and immersive collaboration on the sensorial process of being seen, guided by the feelings and structures of acclaimed popular music by women. Long Playing provides evidence of a mercurial relationship, a critique of capitalism, and the transformative power of mundane and spectacular rituals.
Rachael Lincoln and Leslie Seiters met in San Francisco in 1997 dancing on steel apparatuses under the direction of Jo Kreiter. Since then, with gaps and lapses, they have been in the middle of a project together more than not, creating across various life stages and state lines. Their work has been presented in many of the places they’ve lived including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle. It has also taken them to Almada, Portugal where they tasted the world’s finest egg tart, Jakarta, Indonesia, where they had a surreal karaoke experience, and Bytom, Poland, where the entire town’s power shut down for 15 seconds in the middle of their show. Their dances have been lauded and ignored by the press, been sold out and ignored by audiences, and have provided them with 25 years of process and friendship–sometimes ambition and occasionally depletion–and always something both known and mysterious.

In these highly kinetic classes, we will play with practical and poetic uses of objects, space, and selves, skirting the line between functional and fantastic. We will slow down to sense more, and speed up to access our before-thinking impulses.

ODC is on the ancestral lands of the Ramaytush People in Yelamu. We pay respects to elders past and present, who are still here and part of our community. We recognize that regenerative land management is not new, but is a continuation of practices from Native cultures and from our own ancestors. It is our responsibility to steward the land with care, as our elders did before us.
