Ben Muessig of the Brooklyn Paper has a nice little writeup leading into October 10th’s Angels & Accordions.
The Green-Wood Cemetery is the final resting place for more than 560,000 Brooklynites, but it only takes 30 dancers and a troupe of accordion players to make it come to life.
Check out the article for more goodies, including quotes from DTE Executive Director (& Angels auteur), Martha Bowers, and stay tuned to the blog for Angel-y updates as we countdown to 10/10. If you still don’t know what Angels & Accordions is, head over to the official performance webpage.
BROOKLYN UTOPIAS? Artists consider differing visions of an ideal Brooklyn is an exhibit currently showing at the Old Stone House in Park Slope. DTE teaching artist Eduardo Rabel has an installation in the exhibit, “Garden of Brooklyn Dreams.”
Check out the Picasa Web Album for different perspectives on the piece or check out the exhibit webpage for info on how to see the real deal.
Did you catch Red Hook High at the New York Television Festival?
If not, now’s your chance. RHH has been selected as one of only five pilots from the past FOUR YEARS of the Festival to be screened on NYCTV. Even more impressive, out of the five pilots chosen, two were created by RHH-director Trac Minh Vu (and THREE were shot by DP Nick Blair! Wow!).
The screening is scheduled for September 16th @ 9pm. NYCTV is on most New York cable packages- check local listings, as they say, for the channel #.
Not sure what Red Hook High is? Check out this article from the New York Times or see why ABC News called it the “Anti-Gossip Girl.“
The Red Hook Initiative is still working away to reach the fund-raising goals they’ve set in order to open their new permanent home in the neighborhood. Help them inch closer while enjoying the gastronomic delights of Red Hook at this year’s “Taste of Red Hook.”
The delicious offerings include local favorites like The Good Fork, Hope & Anchor, and Defonte’s. You can buy tickets here.
