Dancing With A Story?

Published by under Uncategorized

It seemed like all the dances were telling a story. However, I didn’t quite understand any of them other than the second one because of the title of the dance. To me, the other three dances were hard to understand and hard to follow the story behind the dancing. However, the second one just seemed […]

The Barber of Seville was actually funny.

Happy Endings

“THERE”, “ARE”, “NO”, “HAPPY”, “ENDINGS.” These words are shown repetitively in one of the videos in the Brooklyn Museum’s current exhibition, “Reflections on the Electric Mirror: New Feminist Video.” As a representation of feminism, the sentence made little sense to me when I saw it ( and doesn’t make any more sense now), but managed […]

A Typical Family

Published by under Danny Senna

Danzy Senna is an interesting lady to say the least. Hearing her read about her family was certainly unique. When she talked about her family, I started thinking about mine. Granted there aren’t as many overt issues as with hers, I can still appreciate and accept the idea that no family is perfect.

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall

This is not really feminism, but I thought it was a funny (if ignorant) view of it. This exhibit actually reminded me of our trip to the ICP. When you look at each piece individually it seems to have little coherence, but together it is an exhibition of freedom and equality. While some of the […]

I did not fall for their dance or understand it

Published by under Uncategorized

I had never seen ballet before and so I was extremely excited over the prospect of witnessing it for the first time. Unfortunately it was a dampener over my high hopes. Although I got a basic idea about what ballet is, I could not understand the meaning behind the dances that were performed that day. […]

Fall… Down, Please?

Published by under Uncategorized

Cheap tickets and ballet shoes: two things I was never a fan of (that’s a joke, guys). Ballet is pretty intimidating though, probably because I can’t walk in ballet shoes, nevermind dance in them. The Fall for Dance began with a ballet number and was soon followed by some African-jazz dancing. The animals, as I […]

A Mother’s Children

Published by under Short Films

As I watched through the short film, I was intrigued because this film felt very knew to me as the mother starts the film with a fight with another to protect her children. Even though she did not have much, was a single mother, she supported her children no matter what happened. It was interesting […]

Michelangelo’s First

Published by under Michelangelo's First Painting

When I first entered I was amazed at all the different artworks that were displayed. The museum was filled with people. As I looked for Michelangelo‚Äôs First Painting, I noticed a lot of people were going in the same direction. I kept walking as I passed a group of people crowding around one area. I […]

Music Through Our Eyes

Published by under Looking at Music - MOMA

As I looked through the Looking at Music exhibition in the MOMA, what struck me the most was the large sign that listed out a lot of phrases in alphabetical order. I thought this was very interesting to read all of them. Even though I’m not sure what the significance¬† of it was in the […]
