Things to do, watch and explore from all corners of cyberspace
Do A Little Dance
Ballet Theatre of Maryland invites viewers to its Digital Library every Friday when a performance is posted to their YouTube channel. Last week, the theater unveiled the contemporary work Vortex, choreographed by Dianna Cuatto and music by Marc Galiber. This piece was first performed in 2013 and was inspired by the four vortexes—Boynton Canyon, Cathedral Rock at Red River Crossing, Bell Rock and Airport Mesa—in Sedona, Ariz.
Wish You Were Here Project
Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center invites all ages to send homemade postcards to be included in an upcoming gallery show this fall. These “pandemic postcards” should showcase art on one side and a written statement on the back. The goal is to collect and exhibit handmade 6”x4” postcards that express the community members’ feelings and share how we all coped during this social-distancing period. So, get crafty, get creative and let them know how you feel!
