Playing Catch-up (#12 - 23)
Here's a quick recap - ADC shows its new piece with ropes, ADC performs at Jacob's Pillow, I perform in Sandra Parks' work at Dixon Place, Christian and I start work on Governor's Island - it ends up being this huge thing with a gazillion dancers and five thousand performances, and everything goes swimmingly, everyone gets paid, and audiences have smiles on their faces. I make it to 63 Hours of Art where Helga holds a ceremony and then I fly out to Hong Kong to visit Aubrey and take French, obviously. Then I just swing over the Bali before returning home to NYC and then Christian and I start work on the Contaminant for Boston. Charlie the Chicken arrives in our lives, and then the day of the show, we decide to add eggs and paint yolks all over us. Boston goes great so we apply that piece to performed elsewhere and BAX takes us on for Upstart in February. On a whim, I sign up for the xyz "make a dance in a week" thing, I'm chosen, I do it, have fun, and win. Christian and I continue to perform for ADC, A Quiet Perseverance at GAS and In the Beginning in AAS. And we teach and want to teach more. And then we also make a new piece based on the Apache dances of early 20th century Paris, for AAS. We hurt each other just enough. And I think that brings us up to speed.
#24 - A New Nonsensical Project
Here are some examples from the past week:
Snapshots Nov. 20, 2014
Ten percent of its economy reached a surprising conclusion -
A new global deal, rather than predictable rules and
Have since increased dramatically- a long list
of other systemic problems
they must keep their eyes on - to be complicit
Snapshot Nov. 21, 2014
A profound turning point in Islamic history - delay of the second hike -
bestowed his title on Selim from a year ago
of the Prophet’s Quraysh tribe -
freeing up its market -
who that Arab caliph would be - work, government subsidies, and pensions
Educated and intelligent Muslims to lose just 30–40
Well-defined Islamic mandate.
Special Mashup of the Day - Saturday, Nov. 22, 2014
FA Archives 1925- Fascism In Italian History and NYTimes on Sicily
The Italian national revolution - chef Lele Torrisi steps in
Italy's recent political struggles - prepare
the sea bass
Movement claims to undertake - long, dark green spinach
Assertion of modern statehood of their tuna -
their great predecessors onto a local sesame bread.
Authority for some decades - onions in Marsala wine
(symbolical and political implications)
- A blue sea in the distance.
and the radical Masons costs $125 per person.
The new civic consciousness- red wine for a dessert
would be doubly baneful -
this is fresh produce.
And finally, just for fun, below is the visual nonsensical poem from Nov. 21.
