Thursday Morning Roundup


by Stephen Becker 15 Apr 2010

MOVE TO THE MUSIC: Sarah Jaffe only released her first full-length album this month. But she’s already become quite the inspiration. Sarah Gamblin, a choreographer at Texas Woman’s University, has created a piece set to three songs from Jaffe’s EP, Even Born Again.

CTA TBD

DANCING UP IN DENTON: Sarah Jaffe only released her first full-length album this month. But she’s already become quite the inspiration. Sarah Gamblin, a choreographer at Texas Woman’s University, has created a piece set to three songs from Jaffe’s EP, Even Born Again. The new Go Figure Skate blog headed over to shoot the above video preview of the piece, which will be performed today at 4 and Friday and Saturday at 7 at TWU’s Margo Jones Performance Hall.

[title of show], TAKE 3: Last week, we pointed you to Theatre Three’s behind-the-scenes look at its staging of [title of show]. The group has now posted its third video in the series (above), and word is traveling about the project. In fact, the blog for the original production has taken notice, sending out a salty shout-out this week.

DON’T BLINK: Don’t have the funds to make it up to NYC this year? Neither do we. But watching this video kinda makes it feel as if you did. In it, you can see every painting that was hanging in the Museum of Modern Art as of April 10. But you’ve got to keep your eyes peeled – the video is only about two minutes long, and that’s a lot of paintings to see. Still, it’s kinda fun to see how many you can ID as they go flying by. (Hat tip.)

SHARE
  • Thanks so much for sharing the video, Stephen! It was all I could do to sit on the footage featuring the crux of the piece during that last song, “Under.” This is something that really needs to be seen live as a whole composition, but hopefully the clip shows how the dance is more literal and accessible than a lot of modern pieces.

    And Sarah Jaffe’s new album is pretty great, too. Listen on Lala here: http://www.lala.com/#artist/Sarah_Jaffe

  • Many if not most of those NYC paintings, could be reproduced on exact size giclee’s and sent on tour. Virtually no insurance needed, or danger to the originals when the copies go on tour. OR they could mass produce exact copies. Art museums are going through as big a change as music companies. The future museum might likely be a traveling truck show going to every town in America and the world. The media is not yet aware of the art and media revolution in art, music, lit, film, etc. but it’s coming.
    PS NYC is the ivory tower of art, it’s also a house of cards of art.
