Witness Relocation combines dance and theater with the energy of a rock show, exploding contemporary culture into intensely physical, outrageous, poetic, and sometimes brutal performances.

    ‘Daily Life Everlasting’ at La MaMa

    Alexis Soloski

    April 6, 2015: How do you live a meaningful life? Should you look to philosophy? Should you study literature? Should you shoot Silly String and dance? No prizes for guessing which option the raucous and joyful dance-theater company Witness Relocation prefers. In “Daily Life Everlasting,” at La MaMa, the company’s third collaboration with the playwright Charles L. Mee, actors shimmy and strut and wriggle. If you’re sitting in the first row, a lap dance likely awaits you. On his website, Mr. Mee’s synopsis describes the play this way: “Several lives and destinies pass through the landscape at a yard sale — under the observant eye of a boy named Odysseus 2.0.” I hope he’s not too upset that he won’t find much mention of Odysseus 2.0 at La MaMa. Or a yard sale. And I’m not totally sure about lives or destinies. But Mr. Mee has always given directors a lot of leeway and as he has lately offered Witness Relocation’s director and choreographer, Dan Safer, first crack at his new plays, he probably isn’t bothered.
