Interview with Michelle Ellsworth: Dance Artifacts and the Cloud

I interviewed Michelle Ellsworth before the premiere of her work at Dance Theater Workshop in NYC.

She talked about her journey as dance soloist making connection between technology, religions and humanness.

In this episode I am experimenting with hyperlinking het video material/documentation to augment her words. I am using Viddler that allows you to create links and comment and more as dots in the timeline. So, hover over the dot… Continue

With Hillary back in the race she never left, we are wondering about the arts and everything else. What you think?

I am right now here in Florida, if I were home, nyc, (the usual me) I probably would not feel justified in sending postcards from my room, but, now on Vacation, well, at least I can say the weather is sunny,… Continue

The piece put both together in an almost satisfying way, but there was a clear sense of two pieces in one. I left the performance and thought later about Woody Allen -- not the Bananas era, but the… Continue

I love wim wenders.

I read a book he wrote and commented a lot about it on Artists Unite ISSUE here.

The cool thing is I was telling wendy about the film of his we just got from Netflix. I said, "this is my second favorite wim wenders movie. The first is Wings of Desire. The third is every other movie he made. The 2nd (the one I just got) is Lisbon story. It's almost a comedy. The character of the soundman, Winter, is so… Continue
