BWW Review: THE CUNNINGHAM TRUST Unveils a Dusty ExtractBWW Review: THE CUNNINGHAM TRUST Unveils a Dusty Extract
by Juan Michael Porter II - May 27, 2016

For whom is a dance made and why? This question kept coming to me as I watched the unveiling of Merce Cunningham's 'Cunningham Ballett' at Baryshnikov Arts Center on May 18th, 2016. Thought lost to time, a film recording of 'Ballett' was recently unearthed in the archives of Norddeutscher Rundrunk Studio Hamburg. Nearly 50 years after it was recorded, the premiere of Cunningham performing the solo 'Changeling' was shown, followed by a live presentation of the same piece. The question is to what end? As an iconoclast would Cunningham himself not have said, 'Let dead things sleep where they lie?' (more...)

NYC Parks Presents THE TYPEWRITER PROJECT: THE SUBCONSCIOUS OF THE CITYNYC Parks Presents THE TYPEWRITER PROJECT: THE SUBCONSCIOUS OF THE CITY
by BWW News Desk - Jun 18, 2015

The Typewriter Project is a series of interactive literary art installations—small, wooden shelters just big enough for a seat, desk, and typewriter—which invite passersby to join in a citywide linguistic exchange that takes both analog and digital forms. Each booth is outfitted with a vintage typewriter, 100-foot long paper scroll, solar generator, hidden tablet, and a custom-built USB typewriter kit, which allows every written entry to be collected, stored, and posted online for users to read, share, and comment upon. Acting as a public, community diary, each scroll captures something of the sound, narrative, and nuance of a specific corner of the city. The Typewriter Project's mission is to investigate, document, and preserve the poetic subconscious of the city while providing a fun and interactive means for the public to engage with poetry.
