Ballet West chose to perform a classic 1925 ballet, then faced another decision: Do racist elements stay or go?

“[Millicent Hodson’s] reconstructions include the legendary George Balanchine’s 1925 Le Chant du Rossignol, the tale of a Chinese emperor who favors the notes of a mechanical bird over the song of a nightingale. Ballet West chose Le Chant, along with two other early works Balanchine created for the Ballet Russe, to open its 2019-20 season this month. That meant it faced another decision: Should dancers portraying Chinese characters perform movements from the original that reflect racist stereot...

This Detroit bead museum honors an African legacy while modeling revitalization

Says artist Olayami Dabls, founder of Detroit’s MBAD African Bead Museum, “I decided that I would open up an African Bead Museum, specially learning that the beads embodied the culture and the history of the people. And that’s something that was missing in the history of Africans in this country.” The museum is located in one of Detroit’s most distressed neighborhoods, and for two decades has provided something else that was missing, stability.

“Nearly 130 years ago, a Harvard anthropologist visited Calais, Maine, a town on the border with Canada, and recorded songs, words and stories from members of the Passamaquoddy Tribe. For years, these field recordings, some of the oldest in the world, were largely hidden from public view.

This portable handheld drill comes with an X and Y axis, like a milling machine!

Titled the MODS, this modular drill set is pretty neat for the reason that it’s actually a portable VMC or vertical milling center. It uses a suction system and a lightweight frame to make drilling easier and reduce the strain on your hand as you hold your drill up to the drilling surface. Suction cups allow you to adhere the MODS to practically any surface, while a smart platform aligns the bit to be perpendicular to the drilling surface. That’s all you really need from that point onward! You c...

It's Not TV. It's HBO.

Sometimes, certain things that have nothing to do with musical theatre teach me wonderful new lessons about storytelling in general, but also by extension, about musical theatre. I think we too often forget how much the various storytelling forms have in common. The Top Two among those certain things would be the PBS docu-series, The Power of Myth with Joseph Campbell (now on Netflix and Amazon Prime); and also Burno Bettelheim's brilliant book The Uses of Enchantment. Those two things are my h...
