Un Par de Cositas para Compartir (Claudia Tarazona)

Un par de cositas para compartir!!!

1. El sábado tuvimos una clase de reggaeton a pleno sol con Cristian Becaaz. (actitudbcz.com.ar). Como lo dice su página web "ACTITUD" para bailar, para todo. Sin actitud no se logra nada. Los invito a visitar su página y ver todo lo que Cristian nos ofrece, y su amplia experiencia en fitness y ritmos.

2. La semana pasada estuve en el Simposio internacional : El corazón del deportista. Super interesante, con participación de cardiólogos, preparadores físicos, profes de clubes de fútbol de primera , expertos internacionales del Inter y la Juventus , nada menos. Se habló de los controles estrictos que deben tener todo deportista, más si es de alto rendimiento. Supervisión constante por parte de especialistas capaces de detectar patologías a veces semiocultas que puden llevar a la muerte súbita. Cosa que vemos últimamente en el mundo del deporte, lamentablemente. Así que si sos deportista, anque sea de fin de semana, visitá al cardiólogo, y hacete no un papanicolau como decia Doña Tita Merello..... pero sí un electrocardiograma, y un eco de esfuerzo para disfrutar tranquilo del deporte.

fundacionfavaloro.org Centro de Vida . Dir. Dr. Roberto Peidro. Luis Sáenz Peña 265, 4378-1200/1300, opción 2.

3. El viernes , sábado y domingo se llevó a cabo el 2do. Congreso Internacional de clown y payaso de hospital. Nos visitaron clowns de hospital de todo el país, y de latinoamérica. El rol del payaso de hospital es vital en la recuperación y evolución de todo paciente. Mediante la intervención de los payamédicos (que son sicólogos, médicos, siquiatras, clowns con un entrenamiento muy especializado) mejora la calidad de vida del paciente y su familia, y también la del equipo de salud.Tuve el placer y privilegio de ser la intérprete de Sue Morrison, clown canadiense que ha capacitado clowns en todo el mundo durante 25 años, entre ellos clowns del Cirque de Soleil. Sobre esto Sue tiene una visión particular: "No me gusta el Cirque", confesó. Porque allí el clown está limitado a hacer lo que le marca la "coreografía", y el clown justamente es anarquista, no entiende de límites, el clown inicia un camino pero no sabe adónde llegará en esa búsqueda. Es un tema muy interesante y profundo. Pueden leer sobre esto en canadianclowing.com o simplemente busca a Sue en Internet y verla en acción. Payamédicos: son parte de mi vida: Los quiero con todo el corazón!!!!!

Tap City 2008

Dance Review | 'Tap Forward'

Generations and Genres Mix at a Tap-Dance Party

By GIA KOURLAS

Tap City 2008, a festival presented by the American Tap Dance Foundation, is a bit like a party where you don’t know a soul but the room is overflowing with communal love and gratitude. The eighth installment opened on Tuesday night at Symphony Space with “Tap Forward,” a program highlighting contemporary choreography and the presentation of two Hoofer Awards (to Tina Pratt and Derick K. Grant), as well as the Preservation Award (to the teacher and tap historian Ann Kilkelly).

Hosted by Tony Waag, the evening didn’t signal much that was progressive, but there were some sparkling performances. Younger dancers mingled onstage with those more experienced, like Ms. Pratt, 73, whose solo was accompanied by the jazz pianist Barry Harris.

The program, which won’t be repeated, began with the mystifying “Vertebrae by Vertebrae,” performed and choreographed by Michelle Dorrance, Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards and Mr. Grant. As Ms. Sumbry-Edwards peppered the floor with aggressive steps, the others, in white masks, encroached on her territory with forced menace and no apparent motive.

Chloe Arnold, in “Phenomenal Woman,” cluttered her unfettered dancing with poetry by Maya Angelou (adapted by herself), and the ensemble Zen wore sunflowers on their costumes and beaming smiles as three performers pounded out a unison dance. It seemed little more than a segment on a Japanese children’s variety show. Another group, Tapestry Dance Company, presented the punchy “Anacruses Revisited,” augmenting percussive feet with body slaps while incorporating the artificial enthusiasm of a cheerleading group.

“People Get Ready,” set to that Curtis Mayfield song, was an oddly tender solo by Kazu Kumagai that began quietly with Masa Shimizu strumming a guitar. Wearing ripped jeans and a vest, Mr. Kumagai alternated soft, brisk taps of his heels with a toe that traced lazy rondes de jambe on the floor. Also affecting was a vigorous solo by Jason Samuels Smith, performed in memory of dancers who died in the last year.

And the finale, by Mr. Grant, “Tribute to D,” reunited many of the performers in a boisterous frenzy. By the way, the “D” stands for Derick. But the piece that resonated most deeply was Josette C. Wiggan’s “Bahia.”

Wearing a ruffled black top, tight shorts and high heels, which showed off her sleek legs, Ms. Wiggan did break some new ground in her sly solo. Performing in silence, she breezed across the stage, zipping through especially florid footwork with a nod to Bob Fosse. This was a tap dance that ushered in a new kind of femininity: saucy yet strong and, in every respect, modern.

Tap City 2008 continues through Friday at Peter Norton Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway, at 95th Street; (212) 864-5400 or symphonyspace.org.

Never Too Old to Tap? Three Aging Hoofers Decide to Find Out

By ROSLYN SULCAS

The Joyce SoHo seems like a slightly odd place for “Time Step,” a three-man tap show by the company Parallel Exit, which specializes in works inspired by the films of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.

The theater’s black-box space provides a perfectly good setting for the low-tech, straightforward staging of “Time Step,” which completed a four-day run Sunday. But the show itself has a crowd-pleasing, populist quality that could probably fill more commercial spaces and draw broader audiences, most particularly the under-12 demographic.

That’s not to say that “Time Step” is unsophisticated or plays down to its audience. But although all three men (Brent McBeth, Ryan Kasprzak and Derek Roland) are skillful tappers, the essence of the show is the kind of wordless yet lucid physical comedy that offers theatrical communication of the most accessible kind.

“Time Step” tells the tale of three formerly famous, elderly hoofers (the Dapper Tap Trio) who live together in cheerful penury until an eviction notice arrives. They decide to enter a talent competition (“Cash prize!”) and after a few attempts to motivate one another, they resolutely begin a period of training and present their number.

The director, Mark Lonergan, shapes the story, silent-movie fashion, through a series of succinct vignettes. The men are first seen in their heyday, each tapping briefly in a spotlight as “1948” is projected on a screen behind them. Then the numbers whir to 2008 and the men are seated, dressed in caps and cardigans, walker and canes at hand.

Their morning habits (drinking coffee, eating cereal, doing a crossword) turn into an ingeniously percussive routine. (Who knew that a cereal box could produce such excellent backup rhythms?) By the time they have confronted bills and discovered the talent-competition notice, we have a good sense of their individual personalities (weepy, resolute, the maverick).

It’s a tribute to the fine acting and physical characterization that each man provides that when another flashback to 1948 offers a vaudevillelike tap routine, we have a genuine sense of seeing the years fall away. Mr. McBeth, Mr. Kasprzak and Mr. Roland (who are credited with the show’s choreography) manage to make their elderly selves funnier and more interesting than the young Dapper Tap Trio, and by the end we care about their fate, which isn’t quite what we might have imagined.

Mr. Lonergan manages this all with dexterous timing, a light touch and minimal stage effects. It’s a reminder of how eloquently the body can speak and of how little it takes to create entertainment.

The second-act rendition of “Let’s Hang On,” in “Jersey Boys,” might be Broadway’s anthem at the moment. Nearly every show had its audience shrink last week, with 14 productions experiencing more than a 10 percent drop in ticket sales. So musicals and plays are trying to hang on until the holidays bring an influx of cheer-seeking visitors to New York, looking to be entertained. After the new year they will try to hang on again, through January and February, traditionally two of the industry’s slowest months.

“Jersey Boys” itself, the winner of the 2006 Tony Award for best musical, has so far proved hardy, along with a handful of other musicals, which include “Wicked,” “Mamma Mia!” and “South Pacific.” The long-running granddads on Broadway — “Chicago,” “Phantom of the Opera” and “The Lion King” — are also managing to keep at least three-quarters of their seats full (sometimes with the help of discounted tickets).

But that is not the case for other award-winning hits. Three musicals, “Hairspray,” “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” and “Spring Awakening,” have already announced that they are closing in January.

A handful of others have been struggling to fill seats. This past week — with Halloween falling on a Friday night and the New York City marathon on Sunday — had an unusually large dip in attendance. Jason Robert Brown’s musical about adolescent angst, “13,” and “A Tale of Two Cities,” which was ravaged by critics, filled fewer than half of their seats for the week that ended on Sunday. On Tuesday night, citing the economy, the producers of "A Tale of Two Cities" announced that the musical would close on Nov. 16.

“August: Osage County,” this year’s Tony winner for best play; the musical spoof “Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps”; the British farce “Boeing-Boeing”; and the long-running musical “Avenue Q” did not rise much above the 50 percent mark, with the last two shows losing more than 17 percent of their audiences from the previous week.

Disney’s “Mary Poppins” and “The Little Mermaid,” meanwhile, hovered around 60 percent of their capacity, although such family musicals are expected to pick up during the holiday season, and Disney’s deep pockets mean that it has more of a cushion to keep shows afloat. (Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” has declined to make its numbers available for more than a year now.)

Straight plays traditionally tend to have a tougher time than musicals. A couple of limited engagements, like the Royal Court Theater’s production of “The Seagull” with Kristin Scott Thomas (finishing on Dec. 21), and “All My Sons,” with Katie Holmes, John Lithgow, Patrick Wilson and Dianne Wiest (closing on Jan. 11), are still doing brisk business. But while “Sons,” a star-laden Arthur Miller production, is playing to nearly sold-out crowds, “Equus,” with Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths (which closes in early February), barely made it past the 60 percent mark last week.

The distressing figures bolstered the Broadway Cassandras who have been predicting that there will be dark theaters come spring. A couple of new musicals, including “9 to 5: The Musical” and “Blithe Spirit,” have already booked theaters. And Jane Fonda is returning to Broadway in the winter of 2009 to appear in Moisés Kaufman’s “33 Variations,” a drama about Beethoven’s obsessive reworking of a rather pedestrian waltz that came to be known as the Diabelli Variations. Ms. Fonda will play a contemporary musicologist who is suffering from a terminal illness and trying to unlock the mystery behind Beethoven’s obsession.

Other theaters designed for straight plays may have more trouble getting bookings. “It’s reasonable to assume there’ll be a few empty theaters in the spring,” said Emanuel Azenberg, a veteran Broadway producer who is planning to revive Neil Simon’s “Brighton Beach Memoirs” and “Broadway Bound” next fall.

Sometimes producers and theater owners turn to short-run shows when there’s no long-term prospect in sight. Like holiday guests, limited engagements often make themselves at home on and around Broadway in November and December. Two nonholiday solo shows that have been in the works for a while include “Liza’s at the Palace,” with Liza Minnelli, set for a run in December, before “West Side Story” moves into the Palace Theater in February. Then Will Ferrell’s “You’re Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush” begins previews at the Cort Theater in January.

Mr. Ferrell’s show is a perfect fit for the season. It runs during Broadway’s deadest period (January through mid-March), it has a built-in audience fan base, and it’s cheap to stage.

“One-person shows are a producer’s dream if they work,” said Rocco Landesman, president of Jujamcyn Theaters, which owns five Broadway theaters. “They’re very seductive. It’s cheaper, and if you can fill the house, you can make a lot of money.”

But he warned that limited engagements are not a viable long-term business model. “A short run is preferable to no run,” he explained, “but you have to be concerned about the landscape when you have to keep filling in gaps because you have dark time.” Jujamcyn has no short runs or solo shows planned at the moment, Mr. Landesman said. The company’s St. James Theater is currently home to “Gypsy,” starring Patti LuPone. Last week the theater was about 60 percent full, but Mr. Landesman said he expected the show to stay put at least through the end of Ms. LuPone’s contract in March.

Gerald Schoenfeld, chairman of the Shubert Organization, the largest landlord on Broadway, agreed that short runs were an uncertain stop-gap measure between the opening of one show and another’s closing.

“They’re good if they fit, they’re good if they have a sure-fire star,” like Billy Crystal, who won a Tony in 2005 in the newly minted special theatrical event category, Mr. Schoenfeld said, but otherwise, “it’s an uncertain proposition.”

“39 Steps” is scheduled to move out of the Cort to make room for Mr. Ferrell and into the Helen Hayes on Jan. 20, where the holiday run of “Slava’s Snowshow” is soon to take up residence.

At the Nederlander-owned Marquis Theater, “The Soul of Shaolin,” a martial arts extravaganza from China, will move in on Jan. 13 for a brief run, after “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas,” based on the 1954 classic film, moves out. “Shaolin” was performed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It will stay at the Marquis until Jan. 31. “Shaolin” is part of a new partnership between the Nederlanders and the Eastern Shanghai Cultural Film and Television Group that is called China on Broadway. The idea is to produce theatrical projects that can play on Broadway and travel around the world.

At the moment Mr. Landesman and Mr. Schoenfeld, at least publicly, are striking an optimistic tone. “Right now it’s clogged,” Mr. Schoenfeld said of Broadway. “There’s no shortage of shows.” Indeed, there are more shows than there are available theaters.

“I feel pretty good,” Mr. Landesman said. “We’re always worried that could change and possibly change quickly. But right now, I’m cautiously optimistic, and I’m hopeful we’ll ride this out.”

Miró at the Modern

nytimes.com/2008/10/31/arts/de ... ign/31miro.html

The exhibition illustrates, step by step, exactly how Miró stalked and attacked painting — zapped its conventions, messed up its history, spoiled its market value.
Crisp, clear and chronological, the show reads like a combination of espionage yarn and psychological thriller.
“Joan Miró: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927-1937” opens on Sunday and remains through Jan. 12 at the Museum of Modern Art; (212) 708-9400, moma.org.

Van Gogh painted “Night Cafe” over three sleepless nights. He was conscious that it both had the “ambience of a hellish furnace,” as he wrote to his brother, Theo, and that it used “six or seven reds from blood-red to delicate pink, contrasting with the same number of pale or dark greens,” as he wrote to his sister Wil, both on Sept. 9, 1888.
“Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night” continues through Jan. 5 at the Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd Street, Manhattan, (212) 708-9400, moma.org. (Except for members and their guests, timed entry is required, with tickets available at the entrance at no extra charge.)

In the beginning an eye-boggling 1935 advertisement for the French luxury liner Normandie, a floating Art Deco exposition in its own right, rivets your attention.
The ship has sailed into Times Square, alongside the monumental ziggurat of the Paramount Building. It is years ahead of the 2004 global-warming catastrophe movie “The Day After Tomorrow,” in which an ocean liner drifts up Fifth Avenue as far as the New York Public Library.

“Paris/New York: Design Fashion Culture, 1925-1940” is at the Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street, (212) 534-1672, mcny.org, through Feb. 22.
