Randall Woolf's "Crazy 8's" performed by the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company

Lar Lubovitch Dance Company at the Joyce Theater

Crazy 8's

So, what order do I put the credits in? The composer, Randall Woolf, is someone I'm friendly with, and whose music is the inspiration and foundation upon which the dance is built. So:


 Music composed by Randall Woolf.

The piece was choreographed by Lar Lubovitch with choreographic contributions by Katarzyna Skarpetowska and the company.


I am neither an expert on nor a regular follower of dance, but watching and photographing the three pieces I saw, I am immediately and intensely aware of the interaction of the choreography, the music and the performing dancers. For me, watching this was like watching a movie whose characters speak a language I do not understand, without subtitles. I create the story, building a coherent narrative in my mind.


There can be no denying that both the costumes, by Fritz Masten, and the lighting by Jack Mehler contributed greatly.


The dancers for "Crazy 8's" are Jonathan E. Alsberry, Anthony Bocconi, Nicole Corea, Atilla Joe Csiki, Oliver Greene-Cramer, Reed Luplau, Laura Rutledge and Katarzyna Skarpetowska.

In the near future I'll post photos of the other pieces I photographed.

Reflections in the chrome on the butt end of a jeep

I must be either very curmudgeonly or stupid, but I can't figure out what purpose there is to driving a silly ugly vehicle like this around Manhattan. I know there are potholes, but none of them big enough to require this sort of vehicle. I mean, it's almost as big as a truck. In fact, it is a truck, and though I don't think most of the people who drive them grew up wanting to be truck drivers, but regarding this I certainly could be wrong.

But they do give good reflection.

This was shot at the corner of Madison Ave. and E. 27th Street on a lovely Sunday afternoon. \

I'm thinking of melting the Jeep into illegibility and making a print of it.

This is not a photograph - but it looks like a photo.


Lots of poets, lots of poetry, enough so that your ears might bleed.

Here's some photos of the poets reading. I'll post their names and more commentary la
