Op zoek naar Amerika

Op 23 september 1960 vertrok de legendarische schrijver John Steinbeck met zijn poedel Charley voor een expeditie dwars door het Amerikaanse continent. Hij wilde zijn land en zijn landgenoten opnieuw leren kennen. Precies vijftig jaar later, op het uur af, stond Geert Mak opnieuw voor het oude huis van Steinbeck. Het was het begin van een hernieuwde inspectietocht, in het voetspoor van Charley en John, maar nu met de ogen van 2010. Wat is er de afgelopen halve eeuw in de Amerikaanse steden en dorpen veranderd? Waar is Mainstraat USA gebleven? Met welke dromen joegen de Amerikanen al die eeuwen hun idealen na? Wat is ervan terecht gekomen? Wat rest er nog van die ‘stad op de heuvel’, het Beloofde Land waarnaar ooit de hele wereld opkeek? En bovenal: wat hebben we nog samen, Amerika en Europa, in de 21e eeuw? (Klik link voor meer informatie)

News Item: LEST WE FORGET: Willem Breuker (1944-2010) by Ken Waxman

Willem Breuker (1944-2010)

The blend of anarchism, precision and humor suggested by Willem Breuker Kollektief (WBK), the ensemble the Dutch saxophonist/composer led for 36 years until his death from lung cancer on Jul. 23rd, 2010, underlined the fascinating contradictions in his music. A collective has everyone on equal footing no matter how skilled, yet this Kollektief had Breuker as the undisputed boss of a group of first-class soloists. Furthermore the sly joke in this wordplay was also reflected in the WBK’s on-stage horseplay. Breuker not only ensured that the unmistakable modern jazz played included themes by notated composers such as Kurt Weill and George Gershwin, but also a large helping of physical and instrumental comedy that might culminate in the vocalizing of a ’20s ditty like “Yes We Have No Bananas”.

“Crossing the Line” Best When it Crosses Lines

News Item: “Crossing the Line” Best When it Crosses Lines

There was a scruffy prophet harbingering in Times Square for three days last week. The expressive sage was actor Donald Fleming, performing a free-wheeling “happening” in the middle of (the pedestrian plaza on) Broadway. Pleinvrees/Agoraphobia (“Pleinvrees” means agoraphobia in Dutch) is part theater, part performance art and part guerilla intervention in the public space. The performance was produced by Dutch director Lotte van den Berg as part of the “Crossing the Line” Festival and was co-presented by the Times Square Alliance.
