from around

- so, if you know me, and if you have been reading long enough you know that I love dance (i also love creating sets and costumes for dance). I think I have some secret life of a dancer in me. The other night I got sucked into the black hole of YouTube videos about dance...
...here's what I watched :
my newest crush - French choreographer Boris Charmatz - see, Magma - I originally fell for him when he created a dance sequence from a book on the work of Merce Cunningham where he took the 350 photos of 200 projects, and then choreographed a dance based on the chronological order of how they were laid out in the book. Such a brilliant interpretation.
Merce Cunningham - Beach Birds For Camera (1993) - another version
one of my all time favorites - Noe Eshkol - recordings of her dancers during the Sharon Lockhart exhibition
Hand Movie by Yvonne Rainer
this great talk by Trisha Brown with dancers
Das Triadische Ballet - which I had seen a while back but is worth a rewatch
this beautiful piece with ballerina Karina Sarkissova to a Philip Glass number
Lindy Hoppers!

- this wonderful NYT article - Medicating Women's Feelings - as someone who is an advocate for feelings this was some welcomed food for thought

- flipping out over this Valentino dress! So inspiring 

- falling for this wonderful FvF portrait on a traditional textile company in Bagru

- a great piece about artist Lisa Anne Auerbach in the NYT

- the amazing and hilarious Fran Lebowitz talks about style 

- Marina Abromovic Made Me Cry - a great blog dedicated to photos of visitors and participants in Marina Abromovic's piece at MOMA - The Artist Is Present. 

- this I could go on forever about - I have listened to this four times in the last week. An incredible, moving and inspiring interview with Bruce Kramer : Forgiving the Body, on my favorite show to listen to, On Being. Please listen, with your heart. 

- Ava has her 15 min of fame in the beautiful film by Gillian Garcia for Sophie Buhai's new line of jewelry
