Hay Stops Playing Awake
Aloha, Johnson/LongHay isn't the only local dancer to be doing some serious traveling this summer. Darla Johnson, Andrew Long, and members of their company (in this case, dancers Kate Warren, Heather Sultz, and Lilla Geisler, actor Tim Mateer, and Technical Director Laura Sandberg) have just returned from a week-long residency at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. While there, the Austin artists conducted master classes and workshops, and performed Walking on Water, the concluding chapter in their recent trilogy of full-length works. Call 467-0704 for info.
A Grant for GrenonAustin photographer Martha Grenon has been awarded a grant from ArtsLink to develop a cross-disciplinary project with Albanian writer Robert Martikos. The collaboration will be a photo-documentary essay on the life of a family during and after the Hoxha regime, the most severe of the Eastern European communist dictatorships. Grenon's images will be matched to writings that Martikos has been compiling mostly in secret over the past 15 years. The project will result in an exhibition to be shown in both the United States and Albania and will see print as a handmade, limited-edition book. ArtsLink enables artists and arts organizations in the U.S. to develop projects with their counterparts in Central and Eastern Europe on projects which may benefit both countries. Call 474-9047 or 442-9709 for info.
