BWW Review: Mad Horse's THE NETHER Is Bold and Beautiful
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Jan 22, 2017

'Bold, beautiful, brilliant' even are perhaps the first adjectives that come to mind to describe Mad Horse Theatre's latest production of Jenifer Haley's provocative play The Nether. And these words are quickly followed by 'difficult, disturbing, and dense.' The eighty-minute dark psychological drama with sci-fi thriller overtones, directed by Christine Louise Marshall, invites the spectator into a seductive and frightening world of obsession, Compulsion, and perverse desire, and yet, by the time the wrenching evening has run its course, both characters and audience have found a measure of catharsis and truth that is its own ray of light.

Lana McWhorter-Flatt Releases ART FOR COLORING
by BWW News Desk - Dec 1, 2016

'Art For Coloring': a potpourri of ideas penned into images to uplift the spirit and ignite artistry. 'Art For Coloring' is the creation of published author, Lana McWhorter-Flatt, who grew up in rural Tennessee, surrounded by farms and fields. She lived with her parents and brother, Mark, and attended Woodlawn Elementary School and later Clarksville High School. Her grandparents lived next door and were a wealth of knowledge and stories. She spent many hours listening to her grandfather's stories and mixing up biscuits and pies with her grandmother. All her grandmother's sisters were poets and writers. She loved listening to Aunt Gabe's spiritual poems, Aunt Bea's funny poems, her grandmother's nature poems, and Aunt Lionel's songs she'd written (and published). Aunt Honora wrote poems too, but excelled at writing short stories. But she was an artist who encouraged her the most. A love of creative writing and poetry was ignited by all these family members. In 1972 she married and moved to Orlando, Florida receiving an AA degree in art. In 1975 she returned to Tennessee and attended Vanderbilt University. She received a BS degree in Special Education. She taught in Nashville public schools for almost 30 years. Now retired, she spends her time volunteering at church and various organizations in Nashville. She continues to substitute teach for the county. She has been a member of Tennessee Art League downtown Nashville, and Madison Art Guild in Madison. When time allows, she attends music jams and quick-draw artist contests around the country. Poetry and songwriting have been a continual interest throughout her life. She has transcribed her father's WWII diary and is hoping to someday publish it. (more...)

Yoga Teacher Training in India Shares 5 Steps to Cope with Failure
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2016

It's normal for awkward feelings such as shame and self-doubt to arise when jobs, relationships, or projects fail. Resisting the Compulsion to hide from or even deny these inevitable feelings and rather finding the courage to embrace them can help you grow as a person, making you less capricious of yourself and others. And when you acknowledge the legitimate risks appropriate for success and the associated ups and downs you can make sharp choices. Here are five steps to help ready you for that next time. If at first you don't succeed ... 1.?Sit with the agony In the immediate aftermath of failure, you might feel compelled to do something, anything, to ease your perception of shame and discomfort, whether that's taking quick, drastic steps to right the wrong or seizing up and abandoning from the world. Don't do either. 'We don't make our best decisions when we are reactive,' says Ashley Good, founder and CEO of Fail Forward, a Canadian company that helps people and organizations learn to 'fail up.' Instead, take a few days, a few weeks, or longer to practice yoga and mindfulness and sit with the facts and discomfort until you begin to see what transpired with more rationality than emotion. 2. ?Decouple your ego from your activity After you reach a calmer state of mind, you will be able to see your action as the failure, not you. This picture helps bring clarity, acceptance, and self-forgiveness, which can start to neutralize the sometimes-crippling shame associated with failure. 3. ?Ask for a recap Tell your story to the community you trust, and then ask them to repeat it back to you. Simply hearing the circumstances re-framed by another party can shed new light on the facts, helping you identify your blind spots. Try to internalize these different aspects in order to see yourself more generously and regain confidence. 4. ?Keep sharing 'The more you tell your story, the fewer shame you attach to it,' says well. As you recap your experience, highlight the optimism achieved by steps 1, 2, and 3. You should be feeling stronger, and reframing the story with your new intuition will work to crystallize what you've learned and help you formulate your next plan of action. 5. ?Take risks Set new, realistic chances for what you are trying to achieve in your next undertaking, and then go for it! Armed with the intuition, self-forgiveness, and a confidence forged by your last trial and error, you're ready to withstand new challenges, gain from them, and innovate. Remember, in order to succeed, you must risk failure. (more...)

BWW Review: Incredible APT ENDGAME Proposes 'We are Obliged to Each Other'
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Aug 15, 2016

In a stellar setting at the Touchstone Theatre in Spring Green, a superb American Players Theatre (APT) cast plays out Samuel Beckett's Endgame. An uncomfortable production to watch on stage, Director Aaron Posner breathes humor and touching life into Beckett's classic one act tragicomedy, a treatise on the end of personal and possibly global life. The desolate, tiny room, which was noted by Beckett himself in the original stage directions to be completely empty, was designed void of any beauty except for a lone terrarium filled with sand and a few artifacts from the lost, viable earth along with loose pages and stacks of books, where Beckett's characters barely survive.
