NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE 2003 August, 2003
Newsletter 21.08.2003Checklist for August 21, 2003:
. July+August: basically done (less than half a moon left).
. fullmidsummer survival: done (actually already starting to moan of freezing in case of 10min rain).
. ice cream consumption: done (plastically documented around the love handles).
. garden gastronomy inhabitation: done (with vibrant personal effort).
. ImPulsTanz: done (finally more time left for movies & books & non-dance friends & sleep).
Possible sentimentalities can possibly be countered with a glance at the water (shower) resp. electricity (t A/C or not to A/C) bill. Or with yet another The Dream Of Love Coup (for 2), instead. Or with a click:
www.sarma.be (search for articles by Jeroen Peeters. And study Flemish for enhanced comprehension)
Thanks to video streams of workshops and performances, the latter has increased melancholy value.
But, as a formerly long haired friend rather often puts it: life is not formerly, but nowly. And this is when all those, who are not vacationing, are crwoding again in front of monitors or on stages. El Señor Zambrano David, for instance, is one of them, and the one to present the final stage of his Rabbit Project, tomorrow the 22nd in Amsterdam, where he gathered 17 young dance artists for the past six weeks.
Or Lilia Mestre, Wim Vandekeybus a.o.: on stage in Geneva as of the 28th, one week from now. More on these and several further notable pastimes not only in the Event Database of www.ImPulsTanz.com, but much more so in the News section (www.impulstanz.com/english/news/index.html). Which is where you can also learn details about Britney Spears' influence on post conceptualism in Contemporary Dance as well as on Misha Baryshnikov‘s "character and myth and legend and skill and talent" (SJP), which he is inclined to spend on "Sex and the City".
Meanwhile Picasso said: "God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just keeps on trying other things." And lateron Tom Robbins: "If by the last quarter of the twentiesth century godliness wasn't next to something a little more interesting than cleanliness, it might be time to reevaluate our notions of godliness."
