L’Imagerie Gallery

Written by

You’d think the NoHo Arts District would have a hell of a lot more visual art galleries than it does.

I learn a thing or two from each and every gig I do. Sometimes I learn the hard way through mistakes I make and being publicly humbled, but often times now its from what has been done right and the delightful feeling I get when the choreography of what ‘s been created is a magical dance number with a standing ovation at the end.

New Mexico is very popular place to shoot right now.

Your Dancing Brain

Written by

 

When exploring new subjects to write about, I became very curious about the human capacity for movement. 

PART I

In a recent class I had two actors on stage doing the Meisner Repetition Exercise. If you’re not familiar with “Repetitions,” it’s an exercise in listening, reacting, and working off the other actor, as you repeat your partner’s behavior and they repeat it back to you again. (That’s a quick and simple description of repetitions. I assume most of you reading this are already familiar with the exercise. If not, don’t worry, as I’ll be addressing this in a later blog.) These two actors were on stage for about three minutes, and they shared great chemistry. When they finished I asked them this:

THE HIDDEN ARTIST: Jacqueline Myers-Cho

ARTWORK WILL BE LEFT ON THE WALL UNTIL IT IS DEMOLISHED was posted at the A+ D Architecture and Design Museum. The Beyond Graffiti 2 exhibition doesn’t have a concrete end date, because the museum doesn’t quite know when it will be razed to make way for the Metro Purple Line. So for now, the exhibition dates run haphazardly from March 28th, 2015 – May*. The time table drifts off into the ethers. It may sound gimmicky, but it’s far from that.

Actor as Entrepreneur

Written by

Several actors in class this week inspired me as they participated in the “Hot Seat” exercise – that’s where actors keep themselves accountable by checking in about how they feel and what they’ve been up to; it’s also a way in for me as a coach. The serendipity I felt recalling some of their comments thrilled me, because they were right in line with the topic of this month’s blog.

So there’s the “hair and make-up” emergency must-have kit. There’s the “rebuild your pointe shoes anywhere” must-have kit. There’s even the “tape and scrape that costume back together” kit. It’s up to you how much you really want to lug every where you go, but my recommendations here are for emergency use.

Teamwork makes the dreamwork

Written by

I first heard the expression “teamwork makes the dreamwork” on the set of NCIS from L.L. Cool J and if I hadn’t already had enough reasons to think he was a cool breeze, that clinched it! He didn’t make it up but he does get the credit for stating a truth that exists not only in television production but everywhere humans come together to combine their talents and resources for a common goal. It’s a versatile concept that applies to teams of 2 and teams of 2000.

The Power of the Camera

Written by
The chances are that people all around you are up to something. And by that I don’t just mean cheating on their tax returns. They are creating, they are writing, they are shooting, they are planning and scheming and all that energy is well worth taping into.

Who Knew Dude Quilters Were So Dope?

There’s no misnomer to these “man”-made quilts. Man-Made: Contemporary Male Quilters is exactly that, a dude quilting exhibition at the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM).

Dancer Wellness: Stay in Love with Dance

Written by

I am writing this article for several different audiences out there: for those dancers who are burned out, lack luster, and “over it;” for people who danced “before” and haven’t put those shoes on for “a long time;” for those dance dreamers who wished they “could’ve” but “couldn’t.” Maybe you’re injured and can’t get out on the dance floor? Here’s the jist - you need inspiration. And just in case you’re reading this and you’ve got your inspiration meter turned way up, keep the following tips in your back pocket in case there’s a need for you or a person you know to reconnect in.
