Upcoming Deadline for the University of the Arts MFA in Dance

The MFA program in Dance aims to rethink inherited practices and consider differently the very idea of study. The program extends the context of learning from the studio and classroom to cities and communities as spaces for learning. Both expansive and intensive, our approach relies on situational pedagogies and the gathering of relational communities. The program moves against conventional thinking about academic learning environments, utilizing the University of the Arts School of Dance’s ...

‘Small Axe’ Trailer: Steve McQueen’s Anthology Series Invites You to Sing the Song of Revolution

Many feature filmmakers have been making the leap to TV lately, but Steven McQueen’s TV debut Small Axe is a little different for a few reasons: it’s on a streaming platform, and it’s not really TV. McQueen’s Small Axe anthology is a collection of five feature films centering on London’s West Indian community from the late 1960s to the mid-1980s, starring high profile stars like Letitia Wright and John Boyega. Several of the films made their debut at the 2020 virtual New York Film Festival, but...

Los Angeles Unified school board candidate Marilyn Koziatek has conceded the District 3 race to incumbent Scott Schmerelson, closing the door on what had been a spirited — and expensive — contest that pitted the teachers union against charter school backers. Koziatek continues to trail Schmerelson by nearly 18,000 votes, or about 7.5% of the votes that have been counted, according to the latest preliminary results from the county’s registrars office. It’s unclear how many ballots are left to be ...

Elementary schools in the Las Virgenes Unified School District felt a long-coveted slice of normalcy Monday, Nov. 9, as the first groups of students returned to campuses after the district received waivers from the county to reopen schools for kindergarten to 2nd grade students. The cheerful noise of students meeting teachers for the first time in a long time provided the soundtrack of the day, after the children returned to schools at the Calabasas-headquartered district after more than 50 days...

The Plastic Bag Store: A Pop Art Installation with a Whimsical But Deadly Serious Environmental Message When COVID-19 exploded in New York City last March, it erased everything on the calendar, including: All live theater… The city’s freshly implemented ban on single use plastic bags… And  , a pop-up installation that was preparing to open in Times Square. The theaters remain dark, but the ban is back on, as of October 19th. The 7-month pause was hastened by the pandemic, but also by an unsuccessful lawsuit brought by flexible packing manufacture...

Was Winston Churchill “The Greatest Briton”? A Short Claymation Looks at the Darker Side of the Prime Minister’s Life

“In 1962, when British filmmaker Richard Attenborough began researching what would become his 1982 Gandhi film,” writes Lauren Frayer at NPR, “he asked Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, how he should portray his late colleague.” Gandhi was revered, treated as a saint in his own lifetime, long before Attenborough arrived in India. But Nehru begged the filmmaker to treat the man like a mere mortal, with all his “weaknesses, his moods and his failings.” Gandhi was “much too human...

Trips on the World’s Oldest Electric Suspension Railway in 1902 & 1917 Show How a City Changes Over a Century Today we take a ride on the world’s oldest electric suspension railway—the Wuppertal Schwebebahn in Germany. Actually, we’ll take two rides, traveling back in time to do so, thanks to YouTuber pwduze, who had a bit of fun trying to match up two videos discovered online for comparison’s sake. The journey on the left was filmed in 1902, when this miracle of modern engineering was but a year old. The train passes over a broad road traveled mostly ...

Watch Link Wray Play a Downright Dirty Version of “Rumble,” the Only Instrumental to Be Banned on Radio (1974) It takes a lot of swagger and confidence to play a couple of bar chords on a guitar, look like the coolest cat doing so, and revolutionize rock music while doing so. That’s Link Wray we’re talking about, and the song is the 1958 instrumental hit “Rumble.” It still sounds fresh today for the same reasons it was controversial at the time. It sounds sleazy, grungy, dirty. This is a song for a pool hall, or a biker bar, and just reeks of cigarettes...
