by BWW News Desk - Feb 26, 2015

In a career spanning more than four decades, the contemporary American choreographer Karole Armitage has been celebrated for blurring the boundaries between dance, music and art. Inspired by disparate, non-narrative sources—from 20th century physics, to 16th century Florentine fashion, to pop culture and new media—the classical dance vocabulary, in her hands, is given a needed shock to its system with speed and fractured lines, abstractions and symmetry countermanded by asymmetry.

by Sondra Forsyth - Feb 18, 2015

I've never been a fan of Peter Martins' choreography so I was surprised to find myself moved by the "balcony pas de deux" in Romeo + Juliet, his adaptation for the New York City Ballet of Shakespeare's tragic tale about star-crossed lovers. Sterling Hyltin as Juliet and Robert Fairchild as Romeo, returning to the roles they originated when the ballet had its premiere in 2007, used the beautiful but difficult intertwinings and lifts to convey their youthful passion in a way that was entirely believable to me.

Editor-in-Chief at HerEthics Books' New Release: 'Initiation in the Valley of Kings'Editor-in-Chief at HerEthics Books' New Release: 'Initiation in the Valley of Kings'
by BWW News Desk - Dec 7, 2014

HerEthics Books Independent Publisher is proud to announce the release of Gabrielle de la Fair's long awaited memoirs from her 10 years of life in Egypt. About the book Gabrielle de la Fair life experiences in Egypt resulted not only in her political commentaries about the most disturbing events which happened during the previous years in the Middle East, but also in this novella: "Initiation in the Valley of Kings." Her memoirs based on true events encompass many specific issues, which for those who didn't "survive" them may appear incomprehensible. Egyptian mentality, sex tourism, hypocrisy of travel agencies, true colors of people shown while in foreign places. But especially, why world needs strong women. The book has a powerful spiritual tuning, showing very openly what can be the outcome of the Near Death Experience. Quotation from the book: "I rose from the dust of Valley of Kings; can anyone else say that?" Placed into attractive background of the ancient Egyptian history, in the clash of cultures and values, book shows the men and women in their worst and best. Egypt is a place of spiritual lessons and they are not always pleasant. Highest realizations are found in the middle of human misery. Quotation from the book: "Any moment in time the person is not in charge over its own life, the fear immediately fills in and spreads. Unreal, on one purpose only focused ideas, starts to Promenade through your head. Ideas which force you to give up your own power and became a slave of others and let them be in charge over you." The Kindle edition is enriched with beautiful pictures of Egypt's historical treasures and paperback have a unique layout. Both versions include Bonus - Gabrielle de la Fair's historical research about Women in Ancient Egypt, which will be an eye opener for many. The book is available on Amazon. About the Author Gabrielle was born in former Czechoslovakia, where she spent her childhood and teenage acquiring universal education and developing her talents in biology and writing poetry. She holds a Master degree in banking, finance and investment. Although, during the life her interests widened, overlapping research, philosophy, strategic intelligence and history, she always finds way how to implement her vision of aesthetic and visual design to all aspects of the written and spoken word. After 10 years of living in Egypt, she relocated back to Slovakia. (more...)
