OK, it’s only been two weeks since the last post, but it seems like a long time.
The silence doesn’t mean nothing’s been going on in Red Hook or Dance Theatre Etcetera, though- far from it. Like what, you ask? Well…
There’s this! From the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:
Dance Theatre Etcetera and Green-Wood Cemetery were honored for their collaboration on the production of “Angels and Accordions,” a site-specific, live music and dance performance that uses the cemetery’s rolling hills and unparalleled collection of sculptures and monuments as its backdrop. For the past six years this free performance event has become an annual ritual, drawing thousands of New Yorkers to one of the city’s great landmarks.
If you’ve never seen Angels, check out some clips online (not that it does the show justice). Stay tuned for more Angels news this fall.
And on the Red Hook front, tonight the summer movies series kicks off at Valentino Park. From Brooklyn 365:
Set up and seating begins at 8 p.m. The movies start at around 8:30 p.m. Gourmet popcorn from Home/Made will be available for $1 per bag. Other area restaurants will be offering pre-order specials for moviegoers.
I have to admit, tonight’s movie- The Goonies– never had the same pull on me as it seems to have had on every other child of the 80’s. Haven’t seen it in a while, though, and it’s certainly a great place to see a movie. They’ve even got an awesome backup location in case it rains.
