Rachael Lincoln & Leslie Seiters: Long Playing
February 16 - 18, 2024
Long Playing is a training, a tribute, a trial, a social gathering for bodies still learning how to be animals, fully together and lost in a crowd. Lincoln and Seiters oscillate between decisive action that is explicit and demanding, and a receptive stance that is patient, wide, and behind-the-scenes. Viewers of Long Playing find evidence of a mercurial relationship, a critique of capitalism, an unfolding ritual, and transformation, both glacial and instantaneous. It calls on fictitious guides, animal instincts, and a long history of making together.
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.

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. ODC is donating $.50 for each in-person ticket (seat) sold to all performances in the Theater.
