There is also a sense of play — or at least playfully mordant humor — to Danielle Agami’s “Duck Sitting,” a study in the signifiers of late-stage capitalism that sees the company dancing with a kind of crazy-eyed, single-minded to-do-focused fervor I often see on the drawn faces of other drivers when I’m stuck in traffic.
Megan Burbank, The Seattle Times
There’s an internal instinct within the cast to start a new idea, informing how the performers interact with one another. Together they decide when to stand and when to sit […] Through these moments, we start to see the satire in being the observed and the ones observing. Our habits and the movements we follow are put on blast: the sometimes arbitrary collective decision to value one thing over another.
Liz Houlton, Seattle Dances
The dancers were very very impressive. Duck Sitting displayed creative movement language that seemed fresh and serious. It is a welcome addition to Whim W’Him’s ever-growing repertoire.
