Still Life in LA

Here's a sampling of press and reactions etc. from the recent tour dates:

LA Times Review

LA Downtown Express Preview Article

Downtown LA Scene Interview with Cynthia

Adrienne-from-the-old-Nest's Blog

Philly City Paper Review

Philly Fringe's own blog

In other news, which I wouldn't mention out of my vast humility but since no one is reading this thing anyway, Jeff and I are stocking up on the fall awards, winning a Bessie (New York Dance and Performance Award) and getting a nomination for a Henry Hewes Award (American Theatre Wing). I was even more excited when I saw Bob Flanagan was shockingly nominated but alas it's not that Bob Flanagan... sigh. Jeff actually got 2 nominations for the Hewes, getting a nod with our co-Sound Designer Jamie McElhenney for Thaddeus Phillips' "El Conquistador" at NYTW.

Cool stuffs

Daniel Rozin makes mirrors out of all kinds of cool stuff. Video. It's an oldie but a goodie.
Wooden Mirror, Rozin's latest creation (on view at program headquarters at 721 Broadway), reflects this tension. The 6-foot-tall video display consists of 830 pieces of gold-toned pine, each wired to its own tiny servomotor. Stand before it and a hidden camera feeds your image, in real time, to a souped-up Macintosh, which parses you into an 830-byte video signal. The Mac then tells each motor to position its pinewood pixel to reflect a specific intensity of light. The result: the world's first live animated woodcut.

Radiohole at Knitting Factory Saturday

Weird but yummy I am sure.

post Mermaid of course (it'll be Aleta's first--Mermaid parade, not Radiohole)

Dream Machine v.2

This puts Bernt's Whip Um mixer action to shame. That's a 4 cylinder car engine which is attached via drive train to the Margarita mixing vat.

Makes me nostalgic for the old car-camping days of my youth. If I'da had that when I was young I'd probably have a kid in their 20s right now.

More detail pics.

Human interest note: Jim and Kristin both have birthdays this week + Aleta and Jameson had their Dad's in East River park last Sunday for some Joshua Stern/Federman hosted Father's Day hoopla. No one got arrested. Phew.

UPDATE! Video!
