The Artist Dilemma – Perfections vs Excellence

by Fran Montano

Tammie Noelle Merheb’s designs cross from stage to screen, from marley floor to red carpet.

Take a stroll down “Village Walk” in Tarzana (the shopping center at Ventura Blvd. and Yolanda St) and spend some time with the public art project, two Byzantine mosaic fountains and a mural, by Jose Antonio Aguirre. The fountain on the east corner of Yolanda is titled "Our Vanishing World" and was produced in 2007. The other fountain, "Living Legends," and the mural "El Camino Real," were created in 2010.

Last month's blog was about living truthfully in your characters’ every moment. I gave an example of an experience in one of my classes. Here's a continuation of that conversation.

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:

Open Mic Nights in the Northeast Valley

Written by

Tia Chucha’s, the nonprofit independent bookstore/performance space/art gallery in Sylmar, has been offering workshops, events, youth programs, and open mic nights for the past 15 years.

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.
