11/09/2008: The Lastmakers

Talking about _________ is like dancing about architecture. Fill in the blank: art, love, etc... but the Chicago collective, Goat Island is actually dancing about architecture in their latest, and final piece The Lastmakers. The 23-minute architectural dance happens relatively early in the evening with also includes a lot of famous "lasts" including those of Lenny Bruce, Emily Brontë, Robert Creeley and Saint Francis. And while the history of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul (the architecture in question) and the words of Bruce et al are never quite satisfyingly brought together, The Lastmakers is an clever and enjoyable ninety minutes.
