The Brodmann Areas, a Norte Maar production at Center for Performance Research.
From Beat Nites in Bushwick to the blowout To Be A Lady exhibition in midtown, Jason Andrew’s directorial energies channeled through Norte Maar were more impressive than ever this year. Exemplary of his juggernautal drive was The Brodmann Areas, a polyphonically theatrical, meta-collaborative ballet he produced in tandem with choreographer Julia K. Gleich for a four day run at the Center for Performance Research. It was, in a word (or two), a mind-bendingly mesmerizing probing of the brain’s housing of mimesis, creativity and uncertainty. Yes, et cetera.
