Pina Bausch is often quoted for saying that she cares less about the way a dancer moves and more about what moves her. My favourite piece by the choreographer, who ran Germany’s Tanztheater Wuppertal for 37 years, is Vollmond, which translates as Full Moon. (It is familiar to many from Wim Wenders’ 2011 documentary Pina). Onstage, there is moonlight, rain, a huge rock, and a woman with flowing hair in a long satin evening gown.
Michael Greyeyes and Yvette Nolan are both the children of residential-school survivors, but Nolan is a product of the system in quite a literal way. When her Irish-Canadian father couldn’t get a job as a draftsman, he was offered a position teaching math at St. Mary’s Residential School in Kenora, Ont., where her Algonquin mother was a student. “The nuns gave my mother a wedding at the end of her schooling,” Nolan says. “She was 17.
Swan Lake purports to be a love story, but I’ve never been able to think of it that way. Tchaikovsky’s grieving Act 2 pas de deux music (a slaying melody you’ll be humming for days after leaving the theatre) sounds less like romance than a long, mournful lament, and I think this tone points to the heart of the whole work. Swan Lake is really Odette’s (the white swan’s) story; it’s her sorrow at unattainable purity, her jeremiad against the injustice of her fate.
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".
