Danse 2000 ~ One Minute of Dance a Day
Dancing July 5th, starting 11h11 – all together via internet with ZOOM for the 2000th daily dance with the french performance artist Nadia Vadori-Gauthier ( @uneminutededanseparjour #oneminuteofdanceaday ) as part of Nadia’s project ‘One Minute of Dance a Day’ .
Following the Charlie Hebdo attack on January 7, 2015 Nadia Vadori-Gauthier established her project ‘Une minute de danse par jour’ and has been dancing daily ever since january 14, 2015 for a minute or a little more. A daily act of poetic resistance, involving dance and video.
For her 2000th dance she organised this extraordinary event ‘2000 danses pour la danse 2000’ together with Chaillot – Théâtre national de la Danse.
…as Nietzsche once said…
« A day without dancing is a day wasted »
Or, more exactly :
“And lost be the day to us in which a measure hath not been danced. And false be every truth which hath not had laughter along with it!” From: Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche in “Thus Spake Zarathustra”.

Virtual Film and Discussion: Ahead of Time, The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber
June 7 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
This prize-winning film documents the life of RUTH GRUBER (1911-2016), an American photojournalist and author who defied tradition in a career that spanned more than seven decades. The New York Times called her “a fearless chronicler of the Jewish struggle.”
She escorted Holocaust refugees to America in 1944, covered the Nuremberg trials in 1946 and documented the Haganah ship EXODUS 1947. Her relationships with world leaders including ELEANOR ROOSEVELT, HARRY TRUMAN, and DAVID BEN GURION gave her a front-row seat to history.
The film captures the drama of her long and extraordinary life as she lent her camera lens – and her heart – to refugees of war. An inspiring story of a life well-lived!

① memo 20181214 ~ The Correspondent is a thing ! ~ The Correspondent goes global now – 5 years after the dutch news platform ‘De Correspondent’ launched in 2013 with a crowdfunding effort.
The success story of ad-free journalism in Holland … the news organization with a direct connection to readers , the members , now starts to replicate worldwide , with headquarters in the U.S.
The site’s readers or members are a critical part in the ad-free journalism that gets done . Not just because members fund it with their subscriptions, but because interacting with them throughout the process of writing a story is a key part of what The Correspondent does.
Yesterday , after just 1 month , the global crowfunding campaign raised the required $ 2.5 million dollar with the help of over 40,000 founding members , it’s readers from all over the world.
The Correspondent ‘s 10 Founding Principles
We are your antidote to the daily news grind
We do not take ad dollars of any kind
We fight stereotypes, prejudice, and fearmongering
We don’t just cover the problem, but also what can be done about it
We collaborate with you, our knowledgeable members
We don’t take the view from nowhere. We tell you where we’re coming from
We protect your privacy, by minimizing the personal data we collect
We want to be as inclusive as possible
We always put journalism before financial gain
We believe in transparency and continued self-improvement
Yesterday , some minutes before midnight in Holland , the $ 2.5 million dollar was raised , and I posted a screen recording of the fact before midnight. here the link https://youtu.be/rCMM-FqWsSU
I felt that little film needed some more editing – so , here is that final cut … and more news and background via the links below :

The dutch De Correspondent
UPDATE – The Correspondent , December 12th , 2018 :
Choose what you pay for The Correspondent …
Join, and become a pioneer !
In the last two days, The Correspondent crossed two major milestones: more than 37,000 people are now founding members of The Correspondent. And those founding members have raised more than $2 million towards our $2.5 million goal. That is amazing.
Now $307,518 left to raise – but only 2 days and 15 hours left to make The Correspondent a reality .
The Correspondent , Nov 22, 2018. – Do you want to change journalism with me?
Choose what you pay for The Correspondent !
I like to tell you about The Correspondent …. a new movement for unbreaking news. I am a founding member (of the original Dutch version) for 5 years now …. and I think you might like to join as well !
Right now they are crowdfunding, and they have asked for my help. They need 2.5 million dollars to launch an English version.
News as we know it leaves us cynical, divided, and less informed. Together we can change that!
The Correspondent is ad-free and wants to redefine what news is about, shifting the focus from the sensational to the foundational.
They need 2.2 million euro’s/2.5 million dollars to launch an English version.
If you join, you become a pioneer.
You can choose what you pay and if they don’t reach their goal (I hope not, of course) you get your money back 🙂
If you’d like to join: you can find more information here in The Correspondent
