Last year, the oddly spelled Portland performance group tEEth won the grand prize at On the Boards' AWARD show with Home Made, where members hid under a sheet covering the stage, and a tiny camera revealed them in a series of tender maneuvers that were then projected on a large screen. The old childhood trick of reading under the covers with a flashlight was transformed into sensual exploration. Led by choreographer Angelle Hebert and sound designer Phillip Kraft, tEEth returns to OtB with the new Make/Believe, where the same spirit is applied to different set of materials: A microphone becomes a penis (or a bone); and its electrical cord is a tether, or a net, or a noose.
