 Music Visualizations, Synchoric Orchestra dancing Schubert's Unfinished Symphony (1919) (via New York Public Library for the Performing Arts / Jerome Robbins Dance Division)From Hyperallergic.com

The New York Public Library recently digitized thousands of hours of its videos in the Jerome Robbins Dance Division Moving Image Archive, from grainy historic footage to contemporary productions along with preservations of culture. One of these — Annabella — dates from 1897 and shows a dancer swirled in fabric that changes shades.

Agewell call(I am working on this project as a researcher and videographer... please submit artworks if you are interested!)

The Agewell Chataqua Project invites you to create and submit small-scale artwork that is an expression of your thoughts and feelings on aging: what it means to you; how that meaning is shaped and influenced by your external environment and society; how you are impacted by it, your hopes, worries, and struggles with it; and how the inevitability of it shapes your decisions and actions.

Creative expressions can be in a wide range of media, including paintings, graphics designs, textile art, installations (which can be interactive), photography, poetry, narrative, and performance work in music, theatre and dance. This invitation is open to everyone, and all are encouraged to submit.
