Blythe Barton’s award-winning company, Blythe Barton Dance, is collaborating this season with Balboa Park’s Old Globe Theatre to present site-specific dance inspired by “Romeo and Juliet.” Barton also co-directs the 40 North Dance Film Festival, which occurs Sept 25-30 at three San Diego locations. She recently accepted a full-time faculty position at San Diego Mesa College, where she’ll share her signature “big moves” with the next generation of dancers.
Good things come in pairs! This season, San Diego’s dance community serves up two milestone anniversaries, two chances to see the iconic “Swan Lake,” and two intriguing premieres from San Diego Ballet. The California Ballet Company and San Diego Musical Theatre will co-produce the Tony Award-winning show about a British working-class boy who dreams of becoming a ballet dancer. Music by Elton John and Lee Hall. Adult language.
The San Diego Black Film Festival, established in 2002, is an annual, four-day winter event beginning today at the Reading Cinemas Gaslamp 15, downtown. But preparations start early in summer, when more than a dozen committee and jury members begin to review hundreds of films showcasing African-American culture or the African Diaspora, submitted from around the world. Making a film can be even more time intensive.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
