Like you also I remember the split Berlin and how in the East there was not only lack of colour but a general emptiness – on the streets, on the shelves, in the cafes (not many to choose from). Yet going back now it’s hard to see the seams.
On colour – a Morland painting (British 19th C) harbours one significant use of red giving the appearence of much colour within the muted tones..almost hidden it has the greater impact.

Friedman Fri, 13 Jul 2012 05:51:27 +0000 http://rescen.net/blog3/?p=187#comment-40 Thank you for coming to observe rehearsals and for sharing this with your readers! Please note, the choreographer and artistic director is named Tao Ye, not Peng Tao. Thank you for making this correction!

Also, please note the company’s name is always spelled TAO Dance Theater, not Tao Dance Theater. It is named for the choreographer and founder, Tao Ye.

Comment on Rain by Angela Woodhouse http://rescen.net/blog3/2012/07/rain/#comment-2 Angela Woodhouse Wed, 11 Jul 2012 16:46:56 +0000 http://rescen.net/blog3/?p=119#comment-2 Neatly articulated – thank you Martin. Of course rain and its traumatic effect is in much debate at the moment from here to Russia – with a sad loss of too many – and over to you. While the outcome is universal wet, is wet, is wet – the means can be distinctly memorable, as I recall New York in 1988 when the downpour I experienced reminded me that though the culture was familiar the climate was not – this was not how we experience rain in little England.

As you ferment a further extension of the metaphor I mull over the need to find similarities and differences in our dancing cultures and look forward to hearing of how strange languages can meaningfully communicate ideas beyond technical prowess. Thoughts from soggy GB.
