Knowing Brooklyn

Filed under: General — m759 @ 7:01 PM

The New York Times  this evening has a story
on "A Piece of Work," an avant-garde production
at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) that is to open
Wednesday.

A background check on Annie Dorsen, the production's 
author-director, yields the following remarks on a video
promoting a show titled "Magical"—

"This video is sent us by the company for promotion
of their show in Bergen the 15. and 16. of April 2011.
Excerpt from the program:

Do magic and feminism go together? Anne Juren, the
French choreographer living in Vienna, and Annie
Dorsen, the New York based director, attempt to prove
that it can: it’s alchemical, it’s political and it works."

the Log24 posts from the dates, April 15-16, 2011, of the
"Magical" production in Bergen, Norway.

Happy birthday, Julie Taymor.
