Whistle While We Twerk

While we've been working this week, these are the tunes that have put an extra pep in our step.

We've been mostly listening to lots of Beirut:
Elephant Gun
The Flying Club Cup
Forks and Knives
Call To Arms
A Sunday Smile
The Penalty

And listening to stations on Pandora.
Beirut Radio
Four Tet Radio
Miike Snow Radio

And these bands:
Fleet Foxes
Fleetwood Mac

We highly recommend these tunes for your listening pleasure.

Mirror, Mirror

A little game for you, if you will. One of these pictures is of Alex's real body. One is a mirror image. Which is which? Post your answers!

Here is a quote for you while you contemplate your answer.

Be good to your body. If anything is sacred, the human body is sacred.

--Walt Whitman

Body Mapping

This week we continue our work on the Arkansas residency. For our residency we are exploring our bodies through body mapping. Below is an example from the internet.

Then, we generated movement from what we discovered in our body maps. Look here for more discoveries and movement for our residency.

COREs newest art crush is Nicole Cromartie, Coordinator of Museum Interpretation at the High Museum of Art. Not only is she a fabulously knowledgeable art historian, but she's also a beautiful dancer!

She graced us with her style, skills and smarts as she guided us through the High Museum's Modern Masters: Picasso to Warhol.

CORE will be performing at the High April 26th in response to the exhibition.

Thanks Nicole!
