Seattle International Dance Festival’s June 13 performance took place in the intimate Erickson Theater off Broadway, in an area of the city formerly dotted with small theaters and artists’ residences. These days the theatre is nestled under towering condos, and last weekend’s  performance by Colemxn Pester’s Tectonic Marrow Society echoed the feelings of many longtime Seattle residents as they grapple with the changing identity of their city.

Pester has continued to develop PYLON III since its debut at Seattle Center’s Cornish Playhouse in February. Along with a change in the cast, Pester removed five monologues and altered the choreography to fit the more intimate venue, they said during a pre-show chat.
