BWW Blog: Libby Servais of Transcendence Theatre Company's 'Broadway Under the Stars' - Gala Celebration Week
by Guest Blogger: Libby Servais - Sep 2, 2014

As usual, this past week with the Transcendence Theatre Company has been yet another vivaciously exuberant one. Once again, we connected with tremendous sold out and full of life, audiences...but our final performance of "Music of the Night" was unlike any performance I've ever been a part of. Here in Sonoma, California, we had an intense earthquake (6.2 rating) at 3:23 A.M. on August 24th (the early morning of that show).This was the first earthquake I've ever experienced and it truly shook me to the core. In fact, I've never been so deeply terrified in my twenty some years of life. Our entire house was rocking back and forth, paintings were falling off the walls, large bookshelves were tipping over and of course the power went out. The only light I could see came from the terrifying explosions of electrical boxes bursting outside my bedroom windows. I could feel my heart racing and literally thumping out of my chest. The earthquake only lasted about 45 seconds but felt like 45 hours to me. In that short amount of time, I actually saw my entire life flash before me. In tears, I sat trembling and adrenalized, clutching my dog child, Pearl and boyfriend Stephan Stubbins and I realized how we cannot take a single moment on this Earth for granted. Life is so precious. (more...)

Florian Westermann Presents MAGIC PLACES Photography Exhibit, 9/10
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2014

His passion is to discover and capture the breathtaking spectacle of landscape and light, wherever on earth he may find it. Being in the middle of nature, which has changed little in thousands of years and where one wishes that time would stop while looking at the scenery in awe, is for him an unbelievable wealth that he wants to share. It is to these magical places that Florian Westermann wants to lead the viewer emotionally and communicate their beauty, grandeur and drama. He wants to show that the unbelievable is reality and is really there. Florian Westermann (b. 1980), grew up in West Berlin and witnessed firsthand the fall of the wall. Reunification and the city as a rapidly changing melting pot influenced his childhood and youth. Already in this context, he developed a very strong interest in photography. The city offered him an inexhaustible wealth of inspiration and motives. However, he soon discovered his special predilection for nature photos. After leaving school, he started his career as a business journalist in 1999. On numerous journeys, he also had the opportunity to devote himself to landscape photography and to discover new, fascinating places over and over again. Over many years, he managed to teach himself the knowledge that he needed as a photographer. Passion was just as key to his success as his willingness to spare neither expense nor effort in search of the best moments of nature. He realized almost nothing brings people together in the way photography does. For Florian Westermann, it is a universal form of expression that appeals to people very directly in a rational and an emotional way. With the exhibition 'Magical Places' at 'art place berlin', he exhibits works of recent years to a wider audience in Berlin for the first time. Forty-five high-quality large-formats show impressive motifs from the cities of New York and San Francisco, the vastness of the American Southwest, the paradise islands of the Seychelles, and motifs from Europe such as the German and Swiss Alps or the Mediterranean island of Sicily. 'Photography is a fire that burns inside my heart and will not let me go. In pristine nature, I find something that is larger and more important than ourselves' - Florian Westermann. Since 2014, he lives and works in Munich. 'art place berlin' is the forum for contemporary art and intercultural projects at the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin-Alexanderplatz. It offers the opportunity to encounter current international art to over 30,000 monthly guests and visitors. The changing exhibitions show artistic positions in painting, photography, and works on paper. The exhibitions can be visited daily from 9 am - 9 pm with free admission on the ground floor and the 1st floor. Today, 'art place berlin' looks back on 5 years of successful collaboration with artists, curators, and institutions. From the beginning, it could be trusted in the rich experience of organizing more than 100 high-profile exhibitions, which were shown in the former Art Center Berlin Friedrichstrasse from 2005 to 2010. art place berlin - forum for contemporary art in the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz since 2009 Alexanderplatz 7 / Park Inn, 10178 Berlin, Germany (more...)
