One Irish Theatre Responds To The Existential Crisis By (Virtually) Pulling Together 100 Artists

“It’s a mad idea.” Indeed: 50 writers and 50 actors have a virtual mandate. “For Abbey dramaturg Louise Stephens, who works with writers on developing scripts for stage, 100 artists was ‘such an enormous number of people as to be almost impossible. But that’s also what’s great about it.'” – Irish Times

If You’re Too Stressed To Finish A Novel, Try Short Stories Or Essays Instead

Everyone’s concentration is shot right now, and for some, it’s just too hard to focus long enough, either physically or mentally, to read a novel. But “there’s something about reading a short form – a capsule of place, time or character – that appeals to me. I know that I can get through it in one sitting. It doesn’t ask too much.” – The Guardian (UK)

The Best Art Parodies Seem To Have Started In Russia, And Now They’re Everywhere

A Facebook group started in Moscow now has tens of thousands of members worldwide, making art of the mundanities of lockdown. “They have been posting their work at a clip of more than 1,000 items a day, each time attaching their own photo alongside an image of the original art. They have corralled family members, pets and household items to channel the iconic and, as the Munchs and Kahlos pile up, so do the obscure — a flexible air-conditioning duct; a collage of plastic forks; a ring of strung...

Paris Without (Extra) People

Paris without tourists looks and feels different – and is a reminder of other traumatic times. “In this stage-set Paris, the monuments still brilliantly illuminated, it is easy to imagine an earlier time when the city streets were quiet: the German occupation. Photographs from that period show empty streets, solitary pedestrians, and grand monuments jarringly out of sync with the humiliated city. Like now, lines of grim-faced customers stretch from the few open stores.” – The New York Times ...

French Directors And Distributors Are Thrilled By The Confinement’s ‘Return’ To Cinema

“We can only welcome a massive return of heritage cinema to France Télévisions in this very special period. Let us hope that this frantic desire continues in post-confinement,” they write.

Helping The Handel And Haydn Society Head Into The Future, By Acknowledging The Real Past

The Handel and Haydn Society has been around, performing Baroque concerts on period instruments, since 1815. And now it’s time to diversify their programming – and acknowledge the diversity they’ve already had, says Reginald Mobley, their new programming consultant. “‘There are so many composers that are female or black or queer that have existed long before we really thought of race or sexuality as a social construct,’ says Mobley. … ‘What it does is gives a sense of belonging … to all of thes...

To Postpone Literary Prizes, Or To Go Virtual?

That is the question. The Booker delayed its prize not because it couldn’t have a virtual ceremony, but because book distribution is in a bit of a crisis right now. “According to a statement, the award will be delayed until later in the northern summer to ensure that readers are able to get hold of copies of the shortlisted books.” Uh, yes please. – Sydney Morning Herald

Hey Kids, Your Homework During Quarantine Is To Watch Hitchcock Movies

And then write essays about them. On the other hand: “The other night I tried Wings of Desire. That really didn’t go well. You could see the kids’ minds were blown by the concept of angels hearing people’s thoughts, but it was a tad too mature. Still, at least it got everybody to bed early that evening.” – The Guardian (UK)
