“Not even its organizers had completely believed this particular dance would take place, and disaster was still quite possible. Forbidding American college students to dance rarely seems like a tenable position, but up to the very day it was scheduled, administrators at the university felt they had not only public opinion but also the law on their side in blocking it. These students didn’t merely want to dance.”
“The losing theatres will incorporate an element of the winning team into the scenic design of an upcoming production; the staff of the losing theatre must wear the winning team’s colors to work the following Monday and post evidence on social media; and the defeated theatres must decorate their main box offices with a stuffed version of the winning team’s mascot.”
The phrase means that no matter which way you work on or what method you use, the end result is the same – ALL ROADS LEAD TO RAMMSTEIN !
C.W.Lübeck’s Art Work ” BESTRAFE MICH ” ( Punish me ) – ( THE PHASES OF RAMMSTEIN ) will be printed and mounted on a giant billboard (10 foot high x 20 foot wide) at the following location – Pontchartrain Expy & Clio St. Charles S/S New Orleans for the whole of February. This exhibition of public art has been specially planned to coincide with the legendary Mardi Gras (February 5-9) which every year bring thousands of fun loving visitors to the city to join the celebrations.
Running alongside the billboard display C.W.Lübeck’s artwork ” BESTRAFE MICH ” will also be available to view as a framed giclee print (40 x 50cm) in Gallery Orange, based on the historic Royal Street, in the heart of the french quarter of New Orleans.
Inspired by the German industrial metal group Rammstein, C.W.Lübeck’s work creates a tension that is hard to shake. Primarily, because his work operates on a psychological level that challenges the viewer.
Like C.W.Lübeck said: “I remember saying to myself: “Incredibly enough, Rammstein’s music and my art have so much in common!” Songs such as ‘Bück Dich (Bend Over), ‘Reise, Reise’ (Journey, Journey), ‘Bestrafe Mich’ (Punish Me), ‘Mein Teil’ (My Part) ‘Mutter’ (Mother), ‘Sehnsucht’ (Longing) have already left their marks on my most recent paintings.”
Both The Yard and the Park Theatre originate in the ambitions of impressively determined founders. Though in some ways the two venues are very different, Miller and Bond express the purpose of what they’re doing in much the same way. “How do you engage with your community and how do you diversify your audience? But I think it’s especially true in London which is growing so quickly and the population is changing all the time.”
“One can imagine a near-future museum with every important artwork in the world – the entire contents of E H Gombrich’s 1950 classic The Story of Art – made manifest in a single super-didactic replica collection. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as no one feels fooled. A copy is just a copy, entirely legal and often useful (not least for scholarship and education), and becomes a forgery only if the work is used to defraud.”
‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Creators On Their Relationship With Veracity And Why All Film Is Manipulation
“All the shows we get compared to are documentaries. We are a work of drama, and that sometimes allows us to go dig deeper. [But] even documentaries aren’t as truthful as you think they are. [If] someone says something in a documentary and you cut to someone else’s face, that filmmaker has made a decision.”
Raphael Schumacher “was performing in an experimental theater production in the courtyard of Pisa’s Teatro Lux when a member of the audience noticed that the rope around his neck was too tight. The actor’s head was covered at the time, but the spectator — a female medical graduate — saw him trembling and realized something was wrong.”
“The research goes somewhat against the old assumption that simply repeating a motor skill over and over again – for example, practising scales on the piano or playing the same level on your game over and over again – was the best way to master it. Instead, it turns out there might be a quicker (and more enjoyable) way to level up.”
“‘The goddam movies. They can ruin you. I’m not kidding.’ At 17, Winona Ryder underlined those words by Holden Caulfield in one of two copies of The Catcher in the Rye she was carrying with her. ‘Me and Holden are, like, this team,’ she said.” Because she turned out to be completely incapable of phoniness, even when it might have done her some good.
