  1. New York Theater Ballet has posted video of some of their Tudor repertory. Password is NYTB Judgment of Paris - https://vimeo.com/67469744 Soirée Musicale - https://vimeo.com/104752922 Jardin aux Lilas - https://vimeo.com/180424486 Dark Elegies - https://vimeo.com/143907110 Romeo & Juliet - https://vimeo.com/398616386
  2. The symposium is cancelled as well -- I am so sad about this.
  3. Oh, me too. I'm hoping that some of these events can make a reappearance in the near future...
  4. I love the slice of life there, with the dogs clamoring on the sideline!
  5. Bumping this back up to the top of the queue, for obvious reasons. We're not going out, so I propose we make a virtue of necessity -- here's my request. Let's talk about programming. Your idea of a wonderful evening in the theater, the special qualities of your local company/audience, a great program that has stuck with you for years, common errors you see companies make -- what have I missed here? I'll go wash my hands, and come back to add my thoughts.
  6. My social media feeds are full of teachers migrating their studio practice to the internet. Yoga, martial arts, Pilates, ballet, modern, hip hop -- even Kate Wallich, a local dance artist who runs a weekly "everyone come" practice called Dance Church, is streaming like mad. Hoping that we learn some lessons about outreach from this, when we're back on a more even keel.
  7. We were talking about this at dinner last night -- between the folks who are working from home, and need a higher/faster level of connection than normal; the kids, from pre-K to grad school, who have been migrated to online learning without any real prep time; people who are trying to stay close to home and so are teaching themselves to use online shopping tools; and all of us who want more information about these untested times -- this is a real time stress test of our online infrastructure. If we're lucky, nothing will collapse. If we're smart, we'll take this as a big nudge from the gods to improve the network, and expand access.
  8. I'm assuming that the Giselle Symposium, scheduled for the second week of the run, will be cancelled as well.
  9. Boggs is a great interview here, and there's a lot going on, but I just loved his comment -- when CB first contact him with the idea that he could come interview for the directorship, he turns to his wife and asked "Where is (area code) 303?"
  10. Damn -- I hadn't thought about visa and work permit issues, but this could really bollux up a lot of artists.
  11. I think most of us are in the same boat!
  12. I'm wondering as well. It's such a huge undertaking -- I have a feeling they will push hard to keep it open.
  13. I don't know how much income they'll be able to generate from this, at least at the beginning, but it's an excellent way to reach a larger audience. Being a lemonade from lemons kind of person, I'm hoping that this will give arts organizations a nudge to think more creatively about the technology.
