Steven Schick conducts the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus in the 2008 West Coast premiere of Evan Ziporyn’s Frog’s Eye. The performance was a collaboration with Tijuana-based dance troupe Lux Boreal under the direction of Henry Torres.
The concert hall space pulsates as the musicians and dancers explore the feelings of motion, stillness and survival in Ziporyn’s composition.
The full video includes a brief interview at the beginning with Schick, Ziporyn and Torres.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
