Kevin Spacey Is Richard III in BAM Production
by Associated Press (), published online 01-19-2012

‘Part Groucho Marx, Part Moammar Gadhafi’

By Marc Kennedy
Associated Press

FORT GREENE — After more than three hours of Richard III at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, after all the death and bloodshed has finally given way to peace, one thought quickly comes to mind: Will someone please cut Kevin Spacey down?

As the victorious Richmond speaks the play’s final lines, Spacey’s Richard is behind him, hanging from his ankles over the stage like a side of beef. It’s yet another sign of how {read more...}

CatScratch Theatre and The Irondale Center Present the Second Annual FLICfest
by Carrie Stern (, published online 01-18-2012

By Carrie Stern

Have you heard? We’re in an economic downturn. I don’t care what the papers say about job numbers going up: Today, with grant agency funding down and rental and other costs going up, it’s harder than ever for struggling choreographers to afford to mount new work. So what to do?

A year ago choreographer Jeramy Zimmerman, in conjunction with Fort Greene’s Irondale Center, initiated FLICfest (Feature Length Independent Choreography). Zimmerman hopes this is a new model for producing and {read more...}

Merce Cunningham: Legacy Tour
by Carrie Stern (, published online 01-11-2012

By Carrie Stern

Is there anything left to say? That’s the question I asked myself as I watched one of the seminal companies of the 20th century on the final leg of its final tour — the Merce Cunningham Dance Company at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where Cunningham first performed with musician John Cage in 1952.

Another critic, seated next to me, said she had come simply to pay her respects. Clearly, so had many in the audience. Middle-aged and {read more...}

John Jasperse’s “Canyon” at the BAM Harvey
by Carrie Stern (, published online 01-04-2012

By Carrie Stern

As they flew through space, John Jasperse’s dancers curved and twisted, creating a vortex at the center of a field of white craft paper. Inventive, quirky phrases, like sticks in eddies of water — sudden juts of elbows or unexpected tilts and catches — punctuated, questioned and mapped the space. Jasperse’s sly physical humor teased like a wink, not a belly laugh.

“Canyon,” part of this fall’s BAM Next Wave, was Jasperse’s meditation on the mystery and beauty {read more...}

“Solmenta” means “bright minds” in Latin. In the spirit of thoughtfulness, the band has committed itself to raising awareness for various causes. Of course, bands often perform to raise awareness for various issues and charities, but what makes Solmenta’s unique {read more...}

Brooklyn-Born Painter Calls His More Accurate

By Verena Dobnik
Associated Press

NEW YORK — One of America’s most famous images, a painting of George Washington crossing the Delaware River, got much of the story wrong: The American commander wouldn’t have stood triumphantly on a rowboat in daylight, but on a ferry bracing himself against a fierce snowstorm on Christmas night.

That’s the historic scene depicted in a new painting that went on display this week at the New York Historical Society museum in Manhattan.
