A Passage to India… With Slides and Chanting

"Why art thou here, 
Come from the farthest Steppe of India?"

Midsummer Night's Dream 

"After graduating, Mr. Franken headed for Harvard,
while Mr. Davis chose the University of the Pacific
in Stockton, Calif., because, he said, he had heard
that it had a foreign study program in India, where
he hoped to smoke opium. (They did, and he did.)"

— Obituary of Saturday Night Live  writer Tom Davis
by Douglas Martin in this evening's online New York Times

"Frances Alenikoff, a dancer, choreographer and visual artist
whose performances often interwove movement with slides,
film, speaking, tape recordings and chant, died on June 23
in Southampton, N.Y. She was 91."

— Margalit Fox, online NY Times of July 8, 2012
