Bill T Jones: A Good Man

If you have a bit of time I highly recommend this PBS American Masters Documentary highlighting artist/choreographer Bill T Jones through his process in the development of work of art based on Abraham Lincoln. It is so worth it.

Bill T. Jones, the recipient of a prestigious MacArthur “genius” grant and winner of two Tony Awards, has been named “an irreplaceable treasure” by the The Dance Heritage Coalition. Above all, he is a socially conscious choreographer who never shies away from controversy — tackling thorny subjects such as race and politics with elegance and intelligence, artistry and originality.

Stephen Petronio 8-min Interview

This is a wonderful 8 minute piece on art:

This piece by Jiří Kylián!!!!!!  Suggest keeping the sound kinda low-ish until prepared.  I had headphones on and got quite a start.

 

 

Baryshnikov’s “Whole Life”

Mikhail Baryshnikov

From the DCTV Blog:

Legendary ballet dancer, Mikhail Baryshnikov, has donated 35 boxes containing his personal archives — video recordings, photos, documents and letters — to the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The incredible archives include some rare gems, such as videos where Baryshnikov can be seen practicing in Riga, Latvia (where he was born) as a young boy of 11 or 12 , doing exercises at the Vaganova School and working with such greats as Balanchine, Cunningham, Robbins and Graham. There is so much material that cataloging and digitizing is estimated to take at least three years, at which point it should be searchable by year, performance, dancer or choreographer. Baryshnikov has said that this archive represents his whole life. Considering that the 63-year-old is still working as a dancer, actor and founder of the Baryshnikov Arts Center in Manhattan, we are certain there is much more to come in his life.

360 Project: Weaving Dance Images into a Movie

This is cool. I particularly like the way tech inspires new ideas about how the crafting of projects like this materialize. It will be interesting to watch the finished product.
