I am an alien.
About 6 months ago, me and some friends from Uni (London Contemporary Dance School) decided to start up a magazine - I am the editor, and I also write a lot of it. Today I had the lovely task of printing, folding and stapling, but I also published it online - so if you fancy a read, here it is.
I was at Dance’s Question Time this Saturday, at the Riflemaker Gallery in Soho, London.
It was an interesting, but largely meaningless discussion - as always, it raised many questions and didn’t really give any answers. Worth a read or watch though, if you’re interested in dance or art. Arlene Phillips was there, in all her overstated annoying glory.
Also, you can just about see me in that photo, in the white tshirt, through the window. Jus sayin.
Its Martha Graham’s Birthday!
Go Google, for acknowledging the occasion, and this wonderful woman :)

It is beautiful. I realise that 99% of tumblr will never have seen contemporary dance, (and for the 1% that have, it will be on So You Think you Can Dance - barf, commercial), but you like art, or independent film, you should see this. Its basically exerts from loads of her dance works, with occasional voice-overs giving insights into her methods, life and dancers. She was such an inspiring woman - she passed away last year, and is one of the most important people in modern dance. Her work feels like life. I honestly just sat there and drank it in; normally I incessantly analyse anything I see. It made me remember that I love dance.
Regardless of the dance, it was shot and designed so well - the 3D actually feels tasteful and fitting and the whole thing is touching and funny and honest. Its basically just a great film.
OK I never get that caught up and soppy about a film, or anything for that matter, but I believe so much that people are missing out by not seeing dance - the most under appreciated art form.
