TEDxGramercy – Khaled Dajani, Kelley Donovan, and Dancers – Motion of the Dancers

0 TEDxGramercy   Khaled Dajani, Kelley Donovan, and Dancers   Motion of the DancersKhaled Dajani

Khaled’s music is the definition of East meets West. The singer/guitarist fuses different musical genres from the Middle East, the Mediterranean and the Americas into soulful arrangements and intricate rhythms.

Kelley Donovan

Kelley Donovan splits her time between Boston and New York City, teaching in both cities and has performed work by Ann Carlson and Liz Lerman. She currently teaches modern dance at UMass Boston, and received her training in choreography from Mark Morris and Bessie Schonberg. She has shown work in Boston and at the Cunningham Studio, Joyce SoHo, Movement Research, The Rover and the 92nd St. Y.

Motion of the Dancers

Kelley Donovan and Dancers will be dancing to Khaled’s Motion of the Dancers, an instrumental piece written to describe an intense sensual relationship which is about to take place. The music describes the chase or dance that occurs between two lovers upon their first connection and the journey that connection endures. The ups and downs detail the struggles and victories of the chase resulting in a climax leaving the lovers breathless.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Jon Huntsman Compares Republican Party to Communist Party

0 Jon Huntsman Compares Republican Party to Communist PartyFollow @SlateViral and Facebook.com/SlateVideo, Watch more: SlateV.com,

Jon Huntsman is raising eyebrows this week for comparing America’s Grand Old Party to the Communist Party during remarks at a New York City event.

The former Utah governor was complaining about being disinvited to a major Republican fundraising event during his presidential bid, apparently because Huntsman had made statements supporting the idea of a third party candidate in 2012′s presidential race.

“This is what they do in China on party matters if you talk off script,” said Huntsman, speaking at the 92nd Street Y.

As the former ambassador to China under President Obama, Huntsman should know. He also said that his fellow Republicans were often “wrong-headed” in their policy approaches toward China.

Along with an apparent disinterest in further endorsing assumed nominee Mitt Romney, or serving as a surrogate for his former rival in 2012, Huntsman may find himself receiving even fewer invites to Republican events. Dear Jon: Maybe it’s time to stop talking about a third party and start one yourself.

David Grossman: To the End of the Land

0 David Grossman: To the End of the Land92Y Poetry Center: http://www.92y.org/shop/category.asp?category=888Unterberg+Poetry+Center888&ev_ads=YouTube_PoetryCenter

From the Poetry Center Archive: David Grossman March 23, 2008.
See him tonight, October 11, 2010, with Paul Auster at the 92nd Street Y: http://bit.ly/cpVAnH

In March of 2008, as part of the Poetry Center’s Festival of Hebrew Literature, David Grossman appeared at 92Y for an interview with Adam Rovner. The conversation took place on a Sunday morning. That night, in Israel, Mr. Grossman’s new novel—Isha Borachat Mi-besorah—was published. Tonight, he returns to New York to read from the novel’s translation—To the End of the Land.

Today’s featured recording is an excerpt from that 2008 conversation, in which Mr. Grossman discusses To the End of the Land.

About the novel, Paul Auster—who will introduce and then interview Mr. Grossman at tonight’s reading—has said: “Flaubert created his Emma, Tolstoy made his Anna, and now we have Grossman’s Ora—as fully alive, as fully embodied as any character in recent fiction.” During the 2008 conversation, Mr. Grossman talked about “writing women”:

When I write about a woman, I do not think that I am writing about woman as a concept or as a state of mind or a state of body. I just tune myself totally—or as much as I can—to this character that I’m writing about, and I try to be absorbed by her to the utmost. I don’t know if something she does is feminine or masculine, I just don’t know it. I just know that for this specific character this is the right way to act. It is a very intuitive decision, the choices I make while I’m writing. I think that most of the women I write about are women I appreciate—unlike the men. The men I write about—usually I do not really appreciate them. The women I write about are stronger, deeper, more complex characters. They are less afraid of being in tight contact with reality, with their inner reality. Why is it like that? I have no idea. It has something to do with the fact that I feel that I myself was very much created or shaped—brought up—by women, enhanced more by women than by men. [In To the End of the Land], the main character is a woman, and she is the engine behind the whole book, and she motivates the men. Probably this is how I look at the world . . .

In an ongoing effort to share with our readers some of the great literary moments which the Poetry Center has presented across the decades, this blog has begun to feature regular postings of archival recordings.
