Who Knew Dude Quilters Were So Dope?

Written by

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.

I had the pleasure of catching CB1 Gallery’s inaugural exhibitions at their new warehouse arts district location, DTLA adjacent. While this post will go live after their first rotation of artists, CB1’s new location promises nothing short of savvy and talented artists to come. The opening exhibitions at CB1 Gallery featured the Guest Gallery exhibition In Search of the Dot that Created the Circle: Geometry in Nature, alongside Laura Krifka’s Reap the Whirlwind and Andre Goeritz’s schadenfreude.

How 10 minutes a day can change everything!

Written by

Its not news that happy, motivated people are immense assets in the companies they work for. And it isn’t just that they are more productive, creative, and successful, it’s that they are more fulfilled. So if someone told you that a 10 minute practice daily would help put you into the ranks of the peaceful and place you on the path to greater joy and satisfaction in the work you do, would you be curious? I know I was and they weren’t kidding.

The Best Independent movie theaters in LAWhere to See Great Independent Film in LA

The Best Independent movie theaters…

It looks like Actors Equity Association is on a mission to “kill” small theater in Los Angeles, masked by the principle that actors must get paid more. They believe they are protecting their actors, when in fact, they will suffocate them. Call it “Equity Waiver Theater” or the “AEA 99 Seat Theater Plan.” In this essay I will call it “Small Theater in LA,” and will leave the union out of it for now.

When I first walked in to the Charlie James Gallery, I didn’t walk in. The owner, Charlie James (complete relation to the gallery namesake), saw me tug at the locked door and sprinted over, keys in hand and apologies in mouth. The well-read and well-spoken Charlie apologized for what I’m sure he saw as lollygagging, but what I saw as local charm. He was chatting with another gallery owner on Chung King Road under the China Town lanterns.

Dancer Health: Mind Your Spine

Written by

The many different styles of dance have varying demands on the body. Having a more complete understanding of how to take care of your body is crucial no matter what types of dance you do. The function and alignment of the spine is at the top of this list.

THE HIDDEN ARTIST: Kristine Schomaker

One of the most curious aspects about Kristine Schomaker’s real life is her second life––literally. Known as Gracie Kendal, an avatar she created to represent herself in a virtual world called Second Life, Kristine has been able to blur the line between virtuality and reality. Before we get to that though, we have to start with Kristine’s beginnings and her inherent love for art and community.

Business of being an actor – AGAIN!

Written by

Happy New Year! If you’ve been following my blogs you might remember that last year at the beginning of the year I spent some time (3 parts) talking about the business of being an actor. It included goal setting, making an action list, and structuring some sort of accountability. Well, it’s a year later and I am going to repeat myself. Why? Because it is so important to remember the fact that you are a business, you are self employed and, like it or not, an entrepreneur.

New Projects for a New Year

“Sunday Lunch”, 52 Films/52 Weeks Project, 2011, LA

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it’s stupid.

Under the artistic leadership of Nancy Evans Doede, Nancy Evans Dance Theatre (NEDT) has been producing and guest performing since 2009. NEDT is the resident dance company at Porticos Art Space in Pasadena, happily sharing the space with the acclaimed Arroyo Repertory Theatre and Pacific Opera Project. In its fourth season, the partnership has lent to the creation and support of an exciting repertoire for the company of six dancers, and has offered performance and collaborative opportunities to other locally and nationally based dance artists. “Gotta Dance” interviews Nancy about how this collaboration unfolded and how this partnership has created a strong platform for her potent dance company from Pasadena.

Same Ol New Me - My New Year’s Anti Resolution

Written by

Ho Ho Ho Ya’ll. Writing you this on the plane back from my last work trip of the year. The Golden Globes have been announced (Go see The Grand Budapest Hotel and Whiplash), the release of The Interview has been cancelled (coming to a laptop near you), and 2015 is right around the corner. For me this year has flown by (more Delta miles than ever) and I am overflowing with gratitude and appreciation for all the lessons, opportunities, adventures and joy that I have been fortunate to experience over the last 12 months.

Acting - Holiday time – A good time to contemplate

Written by

Well it’s December, the end of the year and a time to wind down 2014. A time to celebrate, and for many actors - take a break, visit family, and replenish. I think it’s a good opportunity to “marinate”, contemplate, vision, or simply step back and take inventory. We say at The Actors Workout Studio that we are in the business of “transforming actor’s lives, one at a time”. We believe in the “whole artist”, not only the skills, craft, and business of the actor, but “who each actor is”.
