NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE 2005 March, 2005
Newsletter 28.02.2005"Above us only sky"
Who remembers? Correct: Liverpool Airport. Also correct: "Imagine". JL, before the Lopez came. 33 (1/2) years ago that was. And "living life in peace" is more remote than ever. Adam Thirlwell‘s "Like romance, nationality does not exist. In fact, nationality is a romance" can maybe get away as a Zero Years Remix. Also featuring in his novel "Politics": Milan Kundera vs. Vaclav Havel 1:0, Chairman Mao's personal hygiene, Stalin on the phone as well as Antonio Gramsci's theory of hegemony. As already obvious: a book on a father-daughter relationship and a threesome. (www.randomhouse.co.uk/minisites/politics)
Men, men, men. (ImPuls)Dance tries to balance:
+ Constanza Macras, Paz Rojo @ News/Headlines (www.impulstanz.com/english/news/index.html))
+ Marie Chouinard, Meg Stuart, Robyn Orlin, Erna Ómarsdóttir @ festival05 (www.impulstanz.com/deutsch/impulstanz05/index.html)
+ Moravia Naranjo, Iva Rohlik, Karine Ponties, Yasmeen Godder @ EventDataBase (www.impulstanz.com/deutsch/eventdatabase/index.html)
And then the world. Never mind her history, here‘s her contemporary:
+ "... flashy gaudy Bollywood trash" (Berliner Zeitung) and "Action!! Action to the max!" from the "currently hottest Berlin choreographer" (taz): Schauspielhaus Wien presents Dorky Park (dance) and A Rose Is (music) in Vienna within an ImPulsTanzSpecial ... "Big in Bombay" (www.dorkypark.org resp. www.schauspielhaus.at/spielplan/detail.php?sel=147). Might come also in handy in this context: www.impulstanz.com/english/impulstanz05/festival/club_index.html
+ the Dance Umbrella Johannesburg unites artists from all continents in its currently running 2005 edition, amongst them Bangladeshi Akram Khan, Swiss MetzgerZimmerannDePerrot and South African Ntsikelelo "Boyzie" Cekwana. (www.at.artslink.co.za/~arts/umbrella.htm)
+ the Contact Improvisation Jam at Breitenbush Hotsprings not only sports a classy name but equally so open dancing on wood floor, hot springs & steamhouse, fine vegetarian cuisine, shared cabins, in mt. jefferson wilderness. (www.breitenbush.com)
... and the world will live as one.
Peace. And spring.
