Gaga. I must keep moving until the end.

June 20, 2012

It’s no doubt that this Spring semester has taken a lot out of me. We finished off our choreographic works, have performed student works and professional repertory, the highlight of which was dancing on the main stage at Suzanne Dellal. This week, I finish my studies with technical exams. But in an effort to squeeze out just a little bit more dance from this experience in Israel, I’m turning to Gaga.

A Letter to Myself, In the Spirit of Packing Lists

June 15, 2012

Dear August 2011 Carlo,

With approximately two weeks left in Israel, I am preparing to leave in the way I know best:  making lists. As I decide what to pack and what to do away with, I find myself revisiting a familiar place in my mind and it’s where you are now, packing and freaking out about leaving for Israel. Now almost ten months wiser about living in this place, I’ve decided to compile a few packing lists for you, my August 2011 self:

  • things you’ll be glad you brought
  • things you had no idea you needed
  • things you need to buy right away
  • things you totally don’t need

We’re Dancing at Suzanne Dellal

May 28, 2012

 

 

In true Israeli fashion, I’m not sure what the full program is just yet, and how much of it I’m in, but the details will fall into place before the curtain goes up at least. I kid, I kid. I do know that the Jerusalem Academy Dance Ensemble is performing, along with some of the best student works from the Gertrud Kraus choreography competition. But please, if you’re in the Tel Aviv area, check out what the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance is up to. We’re performing at the Suzanne Dellal Center, Israel’s main stage! June 12 at 21:00.

Exclusive interview with Kyle Georgina Marsh

Can you describe exactly what happened?
I was just sitting in my apartment enjoying a regular Shabbat, watching YouTube videos and talking to friends, and suddenly, my roommate says, “Quick, shhh!” The whole building was shaking. It was like being gently rocked to sleep. We heard people screaming in the hallway.

Did anyone get hurt?
No. We just folded our legs, sat on the couch, and enjoyed the moment.

Have you been in an earthquake before?
Yes. I grew up in Hawaii and Japan, so it’s pretty normal.

Yasmeen Godder’s Storm End Come

April 29, 2012

As you may know, I am enrolled in a unique-to-Dance Jerusalem lecture course called Dance in Israel. As you may or may not know, I adore it. Though all lessons are filled with great information, video, photo, and opportunity for discussion, the most effective (and my favorite) progression of these dance history (or current events?) lessons ends with a trip to see a live performance. Just last night Dance Jerusalem hit the Suzanne Dellal Center once more for another amazing demonstration of Israeli dance. This time, we visited Tel Aviv to see Yasmeen Godder’s Storm End Come.

Yes, it’s been two weeks since then, but I’ve been busy relaxing and recuperating.
