I’m going to make a bold claim and say that last night I saw one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen, Pina, which is playing at BAM in 3-D.
As someone who knows very little technically about dance- I have not been able to stop thinking about movement since I left the theater. Each shot of this movie was amazingly well art directed with an incredible use of light, space and color. The tribute performances to Pina, which take place all over the German city of Wuppertal, each feel meticulously contained but yet explode with energy.
Here you will find art making, design appreciating, nature loving, brooklyn living, social justice shout-outs, do-gooders, soul-searching, non-profit thinkers, arts administrators, veggies, traveling, dancing, crafts, folk music, laughter and love.
This is a place where I collect some of the things that START ME UP. If you can, stay for a minute, and maybe you'll find a few things to get you started up as well!
