CALEB TEICHER & COMPANY,
A COLLABORATION WITH CONRAD TAO
Friday, May 18, 2018 at 7:30pm

Baruch Performing Arts Center presents a Work-in-Progress, More Forever, by Caleb Teicher & Company, a collaboration with Conrad Tao, at Baruch Performing Arts Center, 55 Lexington Avenue (25th Street between Third and Lexington Avenues), NYC on Friday, May 18, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets are ( for students) and are available at www.baruch.cuny.edu/bpac.

Caleb Teicher & Company continues their investigation of American dance traditions on a stage filled with a thin layer of sand. Using vernacular jazz, tap dance, and Lindy Hop with a new contemporary score for piano and electronics by Conrad Tao, this work-in-process sonic journey will brush away the fine line between movement and music and expand the expressive capacity of American music and dance. Teicher is joined by six additional dancers: Nathan Bugh, Evita Arce, Byron Tittle, Gabriel Winns Ortiz, Brittany DeStefano, and Macy Sullivan, with Tao providing music at the piano with electronics. The evening includes a discussion between Tao and Teicher about their collaboration and creative process.

CT&Co's signature elements of musicality, humor, and warmth have won the hearts of audiences by connecting to America's rich and diverse physical heritage, whether tap dancing to Bach or swing dancing to Chet Baker, playing patty-cake to Sufjan Stevens or ballroom dancing to Ella Fitzgerald. Past engagements include Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival's Inside/Out Series, Gibney Dance, Queens College/Kupferberg Center for the Arts (through CUNY Dance Initiative), The Yard on Martha's Vineyard, LaMaMa Experimental Theater Club, and the American Tap Dance Foundation, among others.

www.gnomedex.com – Why did media companies miss the boat on the web? They haven’t always valued the input from their own technology folks on staff. That’s changing as the web is becoming an important source for news and information. So now local newspapers, radio stations and TV stations are hoping that a new breed of “hacker journalists” can help them out by having experience in coding and also understanding journalism issues. http – chris.pirillo.com

Hong Kong Arts Festival, A Blend Of Eastern And Western Performing Arts

Hong Kong Arts Festival, A Blend Of Eastern And Western Performing Arts

The Hong Kong Arts Festival was established in 1973. The festival is a platform which gives the visitors a wide array of art programs from across the world. The festival has become an integral part of the Hong Kong Culture. The Hong Kong Arts Festival was the brainchild of Charles Hardy who wanted a festival in Hong Kong that would support the performing arts. He later broached his idea with Sir Run Run Shaw and Sir Kenneth Fung Pin-fan. The Hong Kong Arts Festival showcases local as well as internationally produced performing arts. The festival is held every year in Hong Kong during February and March. The venues include numerous halls and theatres, ranging from small enclosures to large arenas.

The Hong Kong Arts Festival includes events such as the Dance, Drama, Chinese Opera, Western Opera, World Music, Chinese Music, Classical Music, and also Family Choice. International performers also bring their act to the Hong Kong Arts Festival, international artists of the likes of Jose Carreras, Yo-Yo Ma, Shanghai Kunqu Theatre, San Francisco Symphony, New Japan Philharmonic, Paris Opera Ballet, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and Wiener Philharmoniker all make their appearances at the Hong Kong Arts Festival. Local artists such as Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra also perform at shows at the Hong Kong Arts Festival.

While travelling to Hong Kong a stay at a Kowloon hotel is best advised. Out of the many hotels in Hong Kong, the Langham Hotel Hong Kong would be a really good place to stay.

Best Performing Singaporean Smes Successful In Beating Recession

Recently released figures by DP Information Group, a leading credit and business information bureau in Singapore, has showed that the best performing SMEs in the country have been successful in braving all odds and beating the recessionary pressures. Despite having faced with a challenging economic climate, the best performing small businesses in Singapore earned good profits, while it was mainly the big companies, which struggled to keep their profits intact. As per the figures, profit level of the top 500 small businesses touched US5 million for 12 months that ended on May 31, 2009, down 0.2% as recorded in the same period during the previous year. However, revenues for 1,000 big firms reached US.7 billion, down 27% in 2009. However, figures showing the impact on turnover of Singapore SMEs in 2009 had a different story to tell. The best performing small businesses witnessed a modest growth of 4.7% in sales to touch US.6 billion, while the turnover of larger companies increased 11% to US.7trillion. Commenting on the figures, Chen Yew Nah, managing director of the DP Information Group, stated that the increase in turnover of best performing SMEs in Singapore shows that most small businesses have displayed remarkable skill and dexterity in restructuring their business in order to weather the tough times.
