After hearing that his grandma was depressed, photographer Sacha Goldberger asked if he could help.  So he asked if she’d like to don a cape and helmet and do a superhero photo shoot.  Hell. Yes. And supreme she is.

More amazing photos at My Modern Met and at this MySpace page (with more than just the superhero photos) he created for grandma Frederika, otherwise known as Super Mamika.



22. Long delay, but here’s something from Kahneman.

I’m horribly late with this post, but long delays can be nice.   I’ve been thinking about something I read a while back on Jim Emerson’s blog: ” the perspective of experience – moment by moment – has nothing to do with the perspective of memory, which tends to re-shape the entire experience according to how it ended.”  Psychologist Daniel Kahneman gave this great talk at TED,  “The riddle of experience vs. memory,” with odd-yet-appropriate examples like colonoscopies and vacations.

Not mutually exclusive, as I’m realizing in performance. Maybe I will be able to explain this thought in the near future.  I’m generally the nice girl in the room.  In other news, here’s  another peek at the show, right after I drew a picture of myself.

A couple weeks ago, Cranor and I spoke with Dave about cross-genre collaboration and the way we’re approaching various technology (voiceover tracks, video, sound devices, etc).  Listen to the podcast here.



13. Dance + YouTube + Twitter = body part mash up

Have to say, miss dancing in these twitter-sourced videos.  And couldn’t resist the synchrony of my blog post #13 and Dance Theater Workshop‘s Community Choreography #13.  Ah, synchrony (and I don’t believe 13 is unlucky, btw). Tweeters contribute the moves, Lauren Sharpe dances (she’s a NY Neo-Futurist and she’s fantab), and Adam Smith films and edits this bad boy.  Enjoyable.

Oh. And i contributed the part where her “eyes follow a tennis match.” Being fresh off the U.S. Open and all…



12. Let me direct you this way.

Over to Claudia La Rocco’s Performance Club blog at WNYC, where she mentions the show and this blog (and those crazy DTW twitter community choreograpy videos), amongst some great performances coming this Fall.

Also. We’re now in residency at the Chocolate Factory.  Here’s what’s on the board outside.  Ah yes, now it’s for real.

5. Cranor is obssessed with Roy Andersson

You know of him? Cranor is watching bookoos of him at the moment. And I can’t help joining him.

He just had a film out at Film Forum called You the Living.  All long shots. Very surreal and serious at the same time. (ie, this one scene: Man and woman got married.  Now in house as man sings song with guitar in kitchen.  Woman getting out of wedding dress in back room,which you see in background. House appears to be moving, as window shows city passing by outside.  Then house stops.  Crowd gathers outside.  Cheers the couple on.  Group cheering is AMAZING.  Man and woman wave to their adoring crowd as house moves on again.)

Here’s a bunch of his commercials too.  Oh, and he’s Swedish.

So, to start at the beginning, where the beginning is this.  I’m currently working on this solo performance,  presented by The Chocoloate Factory.  Here’s a peek at the script,  scene 1.  This is Jeffrey Cranor’s (writer, director, roommate and husband) trancribing of  a dance.   As best he can.  Which is much better than this: [and now, a dance].
