A Moroccan dinner at The Bakery. A thank you from Willow to everyone that helped on opening the space. I've had several dreams where the space has manifested itself in some beautiful shape or form.
Willow has a strong vision and its attracting really interesting people.
I have high hopes.
I've spent a solid part of this week finishing The Guild video. Niki and I met almost a year and a half ago at Atlanta Film Festival. We started talking about doing a video, and it slowly materialized over time. In that time I built a real relationship with her and her team. Connecting in unexpected places through beautiful people. The video should be coming out as soon as Monday!
SATURDAY MORNINGS AT 7: Pina, Psyche and Cupid
I've been brainstorming with Anicka on how to approach her dance project "Sunday Mornings at 7" from a film perspective. Part of the challenge is for me to really understand the core of what this work means to her and why she is developing it. The work is based on the Cupid and Psyche myth, and I'm trying to understand what "myth" means in a modern context. I can probably find some literature on the subject.
For inspiration I watched "Pina" by Wim Wenders and was blown away by the quality of dance, and the masterful translation of the work to cinema. I hope I can develop my craft and perception to approach the level of sincerity and emotional depth of Pina. The diversity of people, the actors is really breathtaking. The quotes they share from her are brilliant.
"Go on Searching" "Make me Scared" "Dance for Love" "What are you longing for? Where is the yearning coming from?"
I finally went to a rehearsal to see the dancers move.
Living Walls Potluck at Hi-Lo Press was awesome.
Agreed to do a Signs of Solidarity and now have a 6x8" canvas to paint. This is the banner I came up with - it's not overtly political - yet I consider it a wake up call. A battle cry.
I LEFT BOSTON 2 YEARS AGO.
