Twyla - you're a treasure to the human race. Folks in every field of endeavor could learn a thing or two from you. Everything I've seen that you had a hand in was stellar.

Much love.

Re: “Beacon Dance plunges into troubled waters

Wow, thanks for telling this story. How tragic that we have to interact with nature in hazmat suits.

Re: “Atlanta's dance scene steps up

Wonderful story Andrew! I am honored to be a part of it!! I just wanted to give mention to the Dance Canvas choreographers, who's companies were listed with histories traced to Dance Canvas: Lonnie Davis (new co-Artistic Director of Wylliams Henry Contemporary Dance Company), Juel Lane (2 Kids and a Dream), Jennifer Davis/Robert Mason (City Gate Dance). So excited about Dance in ATL!!!

Re: “Hip-hop poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph has words with Atlanta

Is that true lwc? That's fascinating. I would have imagined that simple music, like a drumbeat on stones or shells, came before poetry. How can we know the earliest poetry or music or which came first?

Thanks for your comment and I do think you're correct. Many dancers would probably say it's almost no switch at all to dance to poetry rather than music. I think Seiwert was referring to the fact that the transition was challenging for her as a choreographer. Bamuthi's poetry utilizes specific words and images, unlike, say, the music of a Phillip Glass score which uses no words or concrete images, characters, historical references etc. I think she was saying that the cadence was a point of similarity, not of difference, just as you pointed out.

Re: “Hip-hop poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph has words with Atlanta

It should be a natural transition for a dancer to work with the cadence of poetry after working with the cadence of music. After all, on the evolutionary scale of human performance, poetry came first, and then music did not develop until ages later.

Re: “Hip-hop poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph has words with Atlanta

I really hope someone puts a video on-line too, MVC. (A CD or iTunes sale of the soundtrack would be really cool, too).

Don't count on it though... Best to get your tix to the show asap, as a couple of the performances have already sold out.

btw: You can hear a snippet of the piece being rehearsed in the following preview video from the Atlanta Ballet.
