Hello Johannes and all,

Johannes and Ludmila Pimentel, ask me to do a report on an dance and numeric art event that took place last october 2005 at the art center of Enghien-les-bains in France. The events was called Bains numeriques. I will come back on next monday with a full report on it, as I was participating at it with my telematic show called "La Démence des anges", the first phase of my new production and giving a conference. Some members of Anomos for Paris XIII where there also.
Take care and I will write back very soon

hello all:

we didn't hear much response to the question I raised the other week (regarding reports about events, workshops, new productions), so I gather it might mean that we are already too inundated with reviews, emails, correspondences, etc.

On the other hand, it might be interesting to ask around, what do members of our community read/hear (regarding concerts, new workshops, research projects going on in other parts of the world, etc).? where to they gather information, and how can our list contribute to such information sharing? how useful are blogs, and what blogs to you read? how are "local" dance communities organizing themselves? or connecting dance resources to digital media practice resources? I found it interesting, returning to Houston for a while, that the dance-makers locally tried to "organize" their own newsletter, and a service organisation (Houston Dance Source), which also publishes reviews (as the newspaper cut their dance reviewing down to the occasional piece on the ballet, while I saw that the Village Voice ran a protest letter as well, choreographers expressing outrage over the cuts in dance coverage (down to what, half a page?).

Well, if you are interested, my little review on "M saudade" appeared on that "Dance Source" : http://www.houstondance.org/reviews.html

and here;s an item of information about bthe ongoing lab/workshop "" FACETS 2006 International Choreography Laboratory "" at Attakkalari Movement Centre in Bangalore:


It is noteworthy that Attakkalari's artistic director, Jayachandran Palazhy, 
announced during his residency at the Digital Cultures Lab last December that his 
Center is about to implement the first dance & digital technologies Masters 
Program in India, and I believe the first course starts in the spring of 2006.  
Congratulations go to Bangalore!!

Talking about songs, I saw a terrific dance concert Thursday night, "M saudade,"  created 
collaboratively by three young dancers from Bill Forysthe's company and directed by Ayman Harper, who were 
hanging out in Houston and found time to make a piece with some friends, including digital film sections by 
Tobin Del Cuore (Hubbard Street Dance Chicago) that left me breathless.  I will try to sketch some 
impressions of the piece and its conceptual core in a later mail, and I do encourage members of the list to 
send in occasional reviews or comments on new work, so that we can keep up with creative manifestations as 
they occur around the world. >>>>>>
