1. Thursday Night Ballet - From the Iceland Experiments

    When I was little I told my mother I was going to be a doctor and teach ballet on Thursday nights. However oddly specific that was I have decided to honor my childhood goals. Every Thursday Night for 2015 I will post a new dance/performance experiment of my own design or in collaboration with other artists. Here is the first - a series of shots from some movement exploration I did while in Iceland at the SIM Residency program last summer. Enjoy!

  4. This weeks Thursday Night Ballet - featuring original music by Liv Lombardi and based on pages 96-98 of Paterson by William Carlos Williams:

    "Spent from wandering the useless
    streets these months, faces folded against
    him like clover at nightfall, something
    has brought him back to his own
    mind

    in which a falls unseen
    tumbles and rights itself
    and refalls - and does not cease, falling
    and recalling with a roar, a reverberation
    not of the falls but of its rumor
    unabated.

    Beautiful thing,
    my dove, unable and all who are windblown,
    touched by fire,
    and unable,
    a roar that (soundless) drowns the sense
    with its reiteration
    unwilling to lie in its bed
    and sleep and sleep, sleep
    in its dark bed.

    Summer! it is summer.
    and still the roar in his mind unabated.

    Books will give rest sometimes against
    the uproar of water falling
    and righting itself to recall filling
    the mind with it reverberation

    shaking stone.

    Blow! So be it. Bring down! So be it. Consume
    and submerge? So be it. Cyclone, fire, and flood. So be it. Hell, New Jersey, it said
    on the letter. Delivered without comment.
    So be it!

    Run from it, if you will. So be it.

    (Winds that enshroud us in the folds -
    or no wind.) So be it. Pull at the doors, of a hot
    afternoon, doors that the wind holds, wrenches
    from our arms - and hands. So be it. The library
    is sanctuary to our fears. So be it. So be it.
    - the wind that has tripped us, pressed upon
    us, prurient or upon the prurience of our fears
    - laughter fading. So be it.
    Sit breathless
    or still breathless. So be it. Then, eased
    turn to the task. So be it."
