finally, an update!
I'm in London. Yep, London again. And plans may be in the works for me to return in the spring and perform my adaptation of I'LL CRANE FOR YOU. Funding and scheduling permitting, of course, which they very may well not do...but I've got my fingers crossed for this possibility!
When I return to New York I'll enter rehearsals for CoMotion, a collaboration between Blessed Unrest and the NYU Percussion Ensemble, which performs at NYU on April 25 and 26.
I'm also looking for a new home (not my actual home, that is) in which to practice and refine my CRANE adaptation.
Currently scheduled CRANE performances:
nEW Festival in Philadelphia - June 3-4
FURY Factory in San Francisco - June exact dates TBD
The Society of Dance History Scholars Conference @ Stanford University - exact dates TBD
I'm in London on my way back from Paris, where I met with Mathilde Monnier, spent several joyous days in the company of my fantastic friend Ben Evans, and fell in love with the Velib' system and the Mariage Freres tea house.
I also saw a delightful, hilarious performance
(this is the "family friendly" version)
In London I've had the pleasure of seeing the most recentComplicite show, my friend and fellow CRANE-r Genevieve Grady's performance at the Resolution! festival at the Place, and a great storytelling/monologue performance by the inspiring Jerome Bel.
I'm on my way out the door shortly to meet my friends Cloo and Guy and their lil' bebe for brunch before checking out a new (to me, anyway) yoga studio in Notting Hill and then meeting my friend Peter to see The Cholmondeleys and the Featherstonehaughs
at the Riverside Studios theatre.
Tomorrow I'm CRANE-ing and, well, planing as I head back to NY and hit the ground running (hopefully, without actually hitting the ground myself at any point without deliberately intending to do so). Rehearsals, Rachel's in town from California, finding a new space in which to practice CRANE-ing, preparing to go to Philadelphia, starting to teach a new class.
I will post the details for the class in a separate blog entry. Please join us and send your friends!
