DANCE — DELIRIOUS is performing at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on 8/13

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Edisa Weeks and DELIRIOUS DANCE.

NEVER Miss a chance to see her in performance.

DO Generously SUPPORT this work!

July 2014Dear Friends and Family,You are invited to join DELIRIOUS for Enchanted, a live music and dance performance that I’m creating for the Native Flora Garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Enchanted is inspired by the textures, patterns and beauty of plants and flowers in four ecosystems native to New York – rustic pine barrens, rolling prairie grass, majestic deciduous forests and mysterious sphagnum bogs. The music, composed by Katie Down, combines ambient sounds with lilting melodies, and features accordion, percussion, violin and ukelele.

Wednesday August 13, 2014 at 3pm and 5pm
The performances are free with admission to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (Adults $10, Seniors/Students $5, children under 12 are free).DELIRIOUS is also performing Enchanted on Wednesday July 23 at 7pm as part of BBG’s Members Night. You can get more info here.

AWARDS + MUNA + THE BESSIES

I’m deeply grateful for several opportunities and new experiences this year.

DELIRIOUS received grants from the Brooklyn Arts Council and the Harkness Foundation to support the creation and performances of Enchanted at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I’m deeply grateful for the grants as they are a HUGE help in making Enchanted possible.

In May I performed with the fabulous Muna Tsengin her new work commemorating Chuck Ginnever’s spectacular, playful and monumental steel sculptures at Riverside Park at 145th St. If you haven’t seen Chuck’s sculptures take a picnic and go see them! The sculptures are like an M.C. Escher drawing made out of steel.

I’m on The Bessies Committee (the NYC Dance version of the Obies or Oscars). I was very surprised when I was asked to participate in The Bessies, as years ago I stopped going, as I felt they were insular and not representative of the diversity of dance in NYC. In addition I’m not a fan of competitions or having to compare apples, oranges, strawberries or bananas, and then declare one the winner. What encouraged me to participate is seeing how Lucy Sexton is striving to make The Bessies more inclusive in regards to what is being seen, discussed and nominated. I’m honored to be able to see so much dance (I’m expected to see two to four shows a week), as well as inspired and humbled by the abundance of talent, ideas and artistry in NYC dance.

  3. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic
    but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!
