Choreographer Mark Dendy is creating a new site specific dance set to classic recordings by Kronos Quartet, called Ritual Cyclical, for this summer’s Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival. The premiere will featured 80 dancers in Lincoln Center’s Hearst Plaza (see photo of rehearsal). Check out this interview with Time Out New York to learn more about this exciting new project.
Vey excited about Mark Dendy’s piece for 80 dancers at @LCOutofDoors. The Time Out interview is terrific online (the editing in the print edition was a bit odd.)
yesterday i tweeted this:
“i’m 2 busy hustling 2 make a living 2 wade into NPR’s E.White http://n.pr/Nx0Pge vs D.Lowery: http://bit.ly/LwFgbf but it all feels bad”
this, i’ll admit, was a hasty and somewhat confusing tweet.
and then my friend musician matt the electrician called (imagine that! a phone call!) wanting know what i really thought, because he’d read both articles and was curious. last night a friend stopped me to say she’d read my similar facebook post and was curious what i really thought too.
“i dont have time for this today”, is what i think. i’m up at 8am to start a day that will include the following: listen to and approve a radio edit for my new single, which has to get to the mastering lab this morning. read, edit, and approve a draft of the bio for my new record so that advance copies of the music can get to press in time for long lead coverage. confirm a rate and schedule a day as soon as possible with my photographer so we can make photos for my album package and publicity photos. film a new pitch vid for the final stages of my pledge music campaign, which closes next week. oh, and eat. and that’s just my morning.
it absolutely kills me that my current list of daily tasks, the inbox of the modern independant musician during pre-release set-up, keeps me from doing more than skimming these articles. this is important stuff, and i hate having to choose which fire to fight first. but i will try to take a second on this flare-up.
