A tonic for the soul?

mwmiconforhomepageMondays with Merce** has been up for 3 or 4 weeks.   There are lots of scenes you’ll find very beautiful, if you like ‘modern’ ballet/music.  There’s also quite a bit of fairly spontaneous conversation looking at the action and discussion it from a perspective quite foreign to much in ordinary philosophical academic life.



**The blurb:

We invite you to join us in the Merce Cunningham Studio for Mondays With Merce, a series of webcasts available for free viewing.  Go behind the scenes at the Merce Cunningham Studio to see Merce teach advanced technique class and conduct rehearsals.  The episodes will also include interviews with Merce Cunningham and his associates, including current and former dancers, artists and musicians, and choreographers who have been influenced by his work.  We will also feature occasional visits by surprise guests!

One thought on “A tonic for the soul?

  1. In case you are wondering how this post fits into this blog, there are a couple of ways you can take it. The most obvious is to see it as about aging, and at least providing a model of aging in a field where aging might be seen as particularly threatening to participation.

    Another way would be to take it as acknowledgement that feminist philosophers sometimes need a tonic for the soul.
