Batsheva Dance Company

I just got back from enjoying a performance by the Batsheva Dance Company. What a beautiful experience!

I know absolutely *nothing* about contemporary dance and was sitting there with eyes wide open. I was intrigued. I was surprised. I was thrown off. So many feels. The above video is by the same ensemble but not what they performed tonight. If you have a chance to see them, please do.

Literature vs. Traffic

Literature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. TrafficLiterature vs. Traffic

Luzinterruptus carried out one of their most popular installations Literature vs. Traffic in Toronto. The piece points out, in a very poetic way, the battle between pedestrians and vehicles going on in most of the world’s large cities.

Luzinterruptus wants literature to take over the streets and conquer public spaces, freely offering those passersby a traffic-free place which, for some hours, will succumb to the humble power of the written word.

Beautiful.
