Cup“If you only knew what God is offering and who it is that is saying to you: ‘Give me a drink,’ you, perhaps, would have been the one to ask, and he would have given you living water.” John 4:10

“A pure heart create for me, O God,
put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
nor deprive me of your holy spirit.” Psalm 50

 

MoMA-VanGogh‘I know, but what a glorious fool. After you are gone Vincent, the world will understand what you have tried to say. The canvases that today you cannot sell for a hundred francs will one day sell for a million. Ah, you smile, but I tell you it is true. Your pictures will hang in the museums of Amsterdam and The Hague, in Paris and Dresden, Munich and Berlin, Moscow and New York. Your pictures will be priceless because there will be none for sale. Books will be written about your art, Vincent, novels and plays built around your life. Where ever two men come together who love painting, there the name of Vincent an Gogh will be sacred.’ Lust For Life, 1934

Rioult2016iRioult2016kRioult2016eRioult Dance returns to the Joyce Theater, with eight performances, June 21-26. Program A features Pascal Rioult’s “Women on the Edge: Unsung Heroes of the Trojan War,” including the world premiere of “Cassandra’s Curse.”

Cassandra is a prophetess, who knows what is to befall Troy and tries to warn the people but they ignore her. The work, with its contemporary echoes, includes original music by Richard Danielpour.

Sara Seger plays Casandra, and is brilliant in the role.
