If you read the press release for Neil Greenberg’s like a vase at the Dance Theatre Workshop here in New York, you will learn that the 60-minute dance “explores the tensions created by the seemingly inescapable human desire to make meaning.”This sounds good, and it might pique your interest in the veteran choreographer’s latest effort. Greenberg is a choreographer with a linguistic bent. Words can show up in his work, and I mean literally.
The New Chamber Ballet is a collaborative ensemble dedicated to creating new work at low cost. It is the brainchild of Artistic Director Miro Magloire, a German composer turned ballet dancer, who founded the group in 2004. Currently comprised of two choreographers, five ballerinas, a pianist, and a violinist, the New Chamber Ballet performs five weekend series a year in studio space at New York City Center. The ticket price is $22 for general admission, $12 for students and seniors.
Two months ago I had the distinct pleasure of witnessing the devaluation of print journalism. It was a weekend performance of Christopher Wheeldon's Morphoses at Central Park's Summerstage. I was caged in the press section, right of stage and on ground level. Robert Greskovic from the Wall Street Journal was in the cage as well. Seats in front of me were reserved for the New Yorker's Joan Acocella. Every writer brought a boyfriend. It was business as usual.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
