Your Performance World: Thursday, June 4, 2009
>>>Chunky Move, who’s bringing the innovative, strange, and elegant Mortal Engine to Live Arts this fall, has a cool show scheduled for Saturday (read about it in The Age). Titled Moving One Hundred, they’re using 100 volunteers to take over Melbourne’s Federation Square for two massive dance performances. You might be asking yourself: Why are they telling me about a show in Australia that I can’t possibly make? The answer: our Melbourne correspondent (we’re worldwide like that) is going to deliver a report and series of pics from square. If you do happen to be there, go check it out and say hi for us.
>>>You know that one way or another you’re going to end up watching some portion of the 2009 Tony Awards on Sunday night. Among other reasons: they’re hosted by NPH, or Neal Patrick Harris, to those of you who haven’t seen the Harold and Kumar movies 1,000 times. John Chattman interviews him for HuffPost. And while I’m not the biggest fan of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly and Serenity, Dollhouse), I do encourage you to watch NPH’s star turn in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Produced during the writers’ strike a couple years back as an Internet-only feature, it’s freaking hilarious. Anyway, Tonys are Sunday night at 8:00 pm on CBS.
