Molly Lieber and Eleanor Smith : Body Comes Apart (Work-In-Progress) - New York Live Arts
January 06, 2019 - New York

BODY COMES APART (WORK-IN-PROGRESS) Presenters please RSVP here. Live Artery showing, presenters please RSVP here. For the theatre showing of Body Comes Apart later this season, click here. Body Comes Apart is a declaration of love, commitment, catharsis, and rage. Continuing our 10-year challenge of making work based in abstraction but in response to trauma, Body Comes Apart uses the potentialities of our bodies to challenge perceptions of female identity and understand the multiplicity of joy, pain, and suffering. Our work focuses on the bodily desire to heal oneself in connection with others. This negotiation is the foundation of the movements we develop, which value imagination and energetic touch over dominance. As co- choreographers in the making and collaborators in performance, our works are feminist episodic structures of multiplicity. Choices come from a conjoined intuitive clarity, rather than an individual strong opinion. Consensus shapes the entire tone of the work we make, and directly addresses the context of the work, which deals intermittently with healing experiences of rape. While we only work with the two of us in rehearsals, the model we have found, o... (read more)

Doggie Diamonds' No Filter Podcast w/ Beanie Sigel - Highline Ballroom
January 22, 2019 - New York

AMEX Logo Beanie Sigel was born Dwight Grant in Philadelphia on March 6, 1974. Sigel was a name he took from that of a street in his tough south Philadelphia neighborhood; "Beanie" was a nickname his grandmother gave him. Like many other young people in musically rich Philadelphia, Sigel tried out his hip-hop wordsmith skills, appearing on a mixtape assembled by producer DJ Clue and contributing a verse to the Roots' "Adrenaline." In the fall of 1998 he caught the attention of the duo Philly's Most Wanted, later famed for their album Get Down or Lay Down, who were at the time little known beyond Philadelphia. The duo persuaded Sigel to join them at a meeting with the heads of the Roc-a-Fella label, rapper Jay-Z and entrepreneur Damon Dash, who were then well on their way to becoming the most consistent hit makers in hip-hop music. At the meeting, Sigel impressed both Jay-Z and Dash with his rhymes. He wasn't a virtuoso poet, but his material was straightforward and vivid, filled with detail about the violent life on Philadelphia's streets. A well respected contributing media personality, Doggie Diamonds has been at the forefront of many renowned one on one's with a multitude ... (read more)
