Michel Groisman in NYC

Was totally impressed by Brazilian artist Michel Groisman last week/end in NYC, where he opened PS122's season. I had an interview with him and a review, in which I admit to how I really didn't expect it to be good then was blown away. Such a nice man, too...

Action painting, happening and performance art: from the action as significant factor to the action as work in the visual arts


The action was inserted as a significant element in visual arts by action painting, expressed through the work of artists such as Jackson Pollock and also by the theoretical work of Harold Rosenberg. Through Paul Ricoeur’s philosophy of action, with its main focus on conceptual framework of action, a precise analysis of the comprehension of action allows us to make a specific study about the action itself in visual arts. Following this line of thought, there…

Moliere the Magnificent

There is a chair in the museum collection of the Comédie-Française in Paris, which is displayed in a corridor right off the theater’s main lobby, encased in a glass cabinet like Sleeping Beauty. It is a simple armchair on casters, upholstered in tattered leather. The chair is old, at least some 350 years. Legend has it, that the playwright-actor Molière practically died in it, on stage, when he had a coughing fit during the fourth performance of Le Malade Imaginaire, playing Argan the…

La MaMa and Mickery

The histories of Ellen Stewart’s La MaMa E.T.C. (Experimental Theater Club) in New York and the Mickery Theatre in Amsterdam are intertwined. Both La MaMa and the Mickery provided a home base for experimenters in the theatre from the sixties onwards. Just like with La MaMa, once you had worked at the Mickery, you were part of that family, you belonged to a group of people that shared a very specific collective history. La MaMa and the…

... I'm an Artist

...

Dance A Day Video Diary

I've decided to keep a video diary of my thoughts and creative process as I take on this challenge. This is the first time I've done anything this public and I believe the behind the scenes occurrences are just as critical as the choreography shared online. Below are my first three entries. Please do respond if you are moved to. I share my every fearful, apprehensive and proud moment in this public forum because I am hoping someone will say "me too" or "I hear ya."
