First of Two Kathak Videos and Music~ From May 27th's Workshop KathakGraphic http://youtu.be/sKa7zkuf02A

 

Second of Two Kathak Videos and Music~ From May 27th's Workshop Kathak-RobertBattle-5x3 http://youtu.be/Do9IuS4ynyE

Our video has a group and a solo performance of Robert Battle’s “Takademe”. Robert Battle has been the Director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater since 2011. He choreographed “Takademe”, a humorous and high-flying dance to the tightly woven rhythms of Northern Indian Kathak dance. His crisp shapes and high flying jumps are in sync with the vocalized syllables of Sheila Chandra's percussive vocal score. “Takademe” was one of Battle’s first works. In the video he says that it reminds him of how far he has come from being a dancer with the Parsons Dance Company and choreographing in his very small apartment in Queens, New York. “Most dances have a lot to do with restrictions and problem-solving... One of the problems was that we didn’t have a lot of space, so the dance stays very stationary. But, then when we finally got studio space in Julliard, the movement traveled on a long diagonal. Freedom. I’m always reminded of that as a metaphor for where I am now with Ailey, where there is a remarkable amount of space.” Now his distinguished Alivn Ailey Dance company and critics embraced his work. He stands tall with brilliant solo choreographers and is now included in the pantheon of American Dance with Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis, Ted Shawn, George Balanchine, Martha Graham, (Mr. Wayne’s teacher) Agnes de Mille, Paul Taylor, Bob Fosse, Alvin Ailey, and Merce Cunningham. ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Jonathan Winters / Robin Williams Improvisation Video~ Page 193 Comics
http://youtu.be/dNGfVa5piUM nbsp: Jonathan Winters III (1925–2013) was an genius American comedian, actor, author, and artist. His forte was improvisation. His comedy albums received 11 nominations for Grammy Awards for Best Comedy Albums. He won a Grammy Award for Best Album for Children for his contribution to an adaptation of The Little Prince in 1975 and the Grammy for Best Spoken Comedy Album for Cranky Calls in 1996. His career spanned more than six decades. He appeared in hundreds of television show episodes/series. His final feature film was The Smurfs 2 in 2013, which is dedicated in his memory. In 1991, Winters earned an Emmy; in 1999, he was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. In 2002, Winters earned an Emmy nomination as a guest star in a comedy series for “Life with Bonnie; in 2008, he was presented with a Pioneer TV Land Award by Robin Williams. His book of short stories, “Winters’ Tales” made bestseller lists. Jonathan Winters was a genius. Watch his posturing. Watch his face from brow and eye-brows to eyes, flaring nostrils, and mouth. His facile and inventive mind. his ease with himself and his family of invented characters, and his insights into the human condition all speak to his genius. We shall not see his equal again. 1. Now you try it. You are a Guru, an expert. You are important, special, and crazy... 2. Now you try it. You are a Sports Announcer that can talk about nothing and sound like an expert for 3 hours... 3. Now you try it. Become an animal. Be ridiculous and exaggerated, but act like you take yourself serious... 4. Now you try it. You are a Movie Director with your actor. You are tell her about emotions and love and explaining it by piling words on top of words... 5. Now you try it. You are a Reality TV Show Host. You believe you are covering important people, but they are not really important... ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Practice Video for "On the Pulse of Morning"~ Page 198 We will use the King's Speech on page 204 below for developings Verbal Fluency. In the same way, we are using an abridged abridged version of Maya Angelou's Inauguration Day reading of her poem, "On the Pulse of Morning" to continue to develop Verbal Fluency. The text that is below the video is also on page 198 of our workshop outline.
http://youtu.be/1PESmuYpxQA Lift up your eyes upon this day breaking for you. Give birth again to the dream. Women, children, men, take it into the palms of your hands, mold it into the shape of your most private need. Sculpt it into the image of your most public self. Lift up your hearts. Each new hour holds new chances for new beginnings... The horizon leans forward, offering you space to place new steps of change. Here, on the pulse of this fine day, you may have the courage to look up and out... Here on the pulse of this new day, you may have the grace to look up and out and into your sister’s eyes, and into your brother’s face, your country, and say simply, very simply with hope, “Good Morning!” ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Our Little Performance from June 17th "On the Pulse of Morning"~ Page 198
http://youtu.be/Z0QjsbZRCXM ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Practice Video for “The Creation” Performance Piece~ Page 202 Ashlyn3x5 The dance in this practice video is inspired by a performance piece on TEDxEast by Carmen DeLavallade, “The Creation: Plus 40”. In her performance, Ms. deLavallade recites James Weldon Johnson’s poem “The Creation” from God’s Trombones (1927) and then dances.

http://youtu.be/eb94l7PFwi4 This Verbal Fluency performance/exercise is after the climactic speech at the end of the award winning film, “The King’s Speech”. That film received many awards and nominations, particularly for Colin Firth’s performance as George VI. He won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. The film won seven British Academy Film Awards and four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Screenplay. The music for this Verbal Fluency performance is the same music as that used in the film, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, Movement Number Two. Our text starts and ends with King George VI’s words: “In this grave hour” and “May He bless and keep us all.” Our text is in five quatrains and matches the Second Movement’s music. King George’s powerful original words are available on the BBC website. Click on the words "King George VI" below the picture to get to the BBC website. KingGeorge Click here on King George VI to get to the BBC website. The King knew his country was on the side of right, and he gave them something to do “stand calm and firm and united in this time of trial”. In today’s broadcast environment of short sentences and trivial pursuits, a cadence that echoes the King James translation of the Lord’s Prayer is now out of place. The five quatrains for our adaptation of “The King’s Speech” are on page 204 of our workshop handouts. ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Practice Video for “The King and I~ Page 205 and 206 http://youtu.be/sfPXkNH_uNA "The King and I" was the fifth Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein musical. It premiered in March of 1951 and ran for nearly three years. Rodgers and Hammerstein's other musicals include Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, Cinderella, Flower Drum Song, and The Sound of Music. We are using adapted lyrics to practice "being a quick study" and to develop Musicality and Verbal Fluency. Our adapted lyrics are on pages 205 and 206 of our Musical Theatre Workshop handouts. ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Pace, Emphasis, Diction, Tone, and Volume~ Page 207 PED-TV-5x3 Abraham Lincoln was known for his dynamic, powerful, and engaging oratory. Ford Theatre's education programs offer learners of all ages the opportunity to engage actively with this aspect of Lincoln’s leadership by developing their own public-speaking and performance skills. The five elements covered in this video made at Ford Theatre's education program are Pace, Emphasis, Diction, Tone, and Volume. They are called Podium Points and students remember them by their first letters~ PED-TV.
