Wednesday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 15 Jun 2011 7:46 AM

Today in the roundup: Elledanceworks helps out fellow dancers, Spider-Man returns and generating your artist statement.


THE FINALE: Beginning Thursday, Elledanceworks will perform three shows at the Bath House Cultural Center to wrap up its 14th season. And, being the nice people that they are, Elle has invited our pal and Art&Seek guest blogger Danielle Georgiou’s new company, Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, to perform at the show. “It’s important for groups like Muscle Memory and us to support each other, to help nurture the young artists who are coming up, like Danielle, and to make a home for dance,” Elle co-founder Michele Hanlon tells in a preview of the show.

LET’S TRY THIS AGAIN: Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark has been one of the biggest jokes in Broadway history. Unfortunately, it’s also the most expensive show in Broadway history, which means the producers are going to pull out every stop in an effort to right the ship. That includes bringing in Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to rework the script. If that name sounds familiar, it’s probably because you saw his It’s a Bird . . . It’s a Plane . . . It’s Superman, which the Dallas Theater Center presented last year. So how did he do with his new super hero project? The new version of the show opened Tuesday night, and has a review.

NEVERMIND THE BOLLOCKS: Need an artist statement to submit for grant proposals, websites, etc.? Don’t really feel like thinking too deeply about what it is you’re trying to say in your art? Then the Arty Bollocks Generator is for you.
