Bay View Chef to Appear in Wild Space performance Delicious

Feb. 1, 2012

Bay View chef Jennifer Goetzinger will be part of Wild Space Dance Company’s Delicious, a performance inspired by appetite, the culinary arts and the pursuit of satisfaction. Delicious performances are at 8 p.m., February 9-11, 2012 at the Stiemke Theater. For the premium ticket price of $25, audience members can also enjoy a pre-show talk and cooking demonstration at 7:15 pm featuring Chef Michelle Evans representing Braise Restaurant. General admission does not include the pre-show talk and is $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors. Tickets are available by calling the Milwaukee Repertory Theater box office at 414/224-9490 beginning in January 2012.

Jennifer Goetzinger was a founding member of Wild Space Dance Company and performed with the company from 1987 through 1989. As owner of Black Tie Catering, Goetzinger moved her performing space into her catering kitchen, from places such as yachts to inside diesel trucks, from Miller Park to the Bradley Sculpture Gardens, from museums to garages and even onto the Pabst Theatre’s backstage. Currently she owns Personal Chef Concierge Services. Her cooking philosophy is a reflection of her support of local, seasonal and whole foods. The art of gathering and sharing food and time inspires Goetzinger to cook from the heart.

“My inspiration is by the memories I have in my nose, tongue and eyes from my Grandmother’s cooking on our farm in Iowa," says Goetzinger. "Everything from her garden and from the animals they raised was treated with respect. Gathering at the supper table was always a bounty of love.”

Flying dishes, favorite and feared recipes, onstage cooking and directions on good dinner manners fill the Delicious menu. Through interwoven vignettes of theatrical movement and full-bodied dance, performers reveal desires and disappointments in the pursuit of satisfaction. Goetzinger will prepare food onstage as part of the performance. Featured performers include Liz Herbst Fransee, Angela Frederick, Allison Kaminsky, Mandi Karr, Lindsay Krygowski, Molly Mingey, Laura Murphy, Kelly Radermacher, Jessie Mae Scibek and Mai-Yeng Vang-Strath.

“Creating a performance inspired by the art and act of cooking reflects my own love of the culinary experience,” says Artistic Director Debra Loewen. “Like preparing a meal, dance begins with directions and its ingredients are dancers and the ideas they bring to the mix. In the process of cooking, as in choreography, we take something, change it, and change it again. To invent movement for Delicious, we looked at these similarities between cooking and choreography, and the desires that drive us to find a sense of fulfillment in food and life.”

In conjunction with Delicious, Wild Space is partnering with Hunger Task Force for their community food drive. Audience members who bring a non-perishable food item will be entered in a drawing for a gift certificate from Braise Restaurant.

Led by 2011 Milwaukee Arts Board Artist of the Year Debra Loewen, Wild Space Dance Company has intrigued audiences for 25 years. Known for site-specific dance events and artistic collaborations, the company merges dance with visual art, architecture and music to create inventive choreography and emotionally-charged performances. The company has toured performance work to Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, South Korea and Japan. Wild Space is a company-in-residence at Lawrence University and Lincoln Center Middle School of the Arts in Milwaukee. Wild Space is a member of the Creative Alliance of Greater Milwaukee and an affiliate of the United Performing Arts Fund.
