Tahinis Restaurants Puts It's Entire Cash Reserves Into Bitcoin
"I think is this. Is chris coney speaking welcome back so you guys might have seen michael salo over the news media outlets recently. The ceo micro strategy You might be familiar with this already. So i'm not going to reiterate. The whole thing is about micro strategy put in most of that corporate cash reserves into bitcoin and then they make a business case for that so yes. We all familiar with that. We were just waiting for that first. Domino to start hitting and snowballing to other companies which is now happening. I was just browsing the old twitter as i do and chemicals this tweet from to heaney's restaurants who basically have just done the same thing and they have this tweet storms. I'm going to read out to you as to why they've done. What's microsoft's don as well now to heaney's restaurants. I've never headed them. But as far as i can tell. A canadian based company is a franchise of mediterranean restaurants. So that we go thus thus who. Who's talking here. So if you want to follow these guys check the tweets out. It's at the real to heaney's which ta h- h. I n i s to heaney's the real to heaney's that's the twitter handle so check this out. This is from the first of december. This was yesterday at five pm. Uk time so it says we converted our entire reserves to bitcoin in august. Twenty twenty. and since then we've been ridiculed and cold irresponsible fools in our community our reserves in dollah. Tam's doubled since then. Here's why we continue to buy bitcoin forever. Time for a threat. So festival says right that they did in august. Why is it took me this long to hear about it. Have you guys head about this already. Let me know if you already had about this book. This is the first. I've heard about it. And that's what august. September october november four five months ago. They did this. Maybe they just didn't say anything and didn't wanna say anything but it sounds like 'cause we've been ridiculed for it. Well they must've told somebody that follow is all the clients customers knew about it but i didn't say that we got so he goes the tweet storm the first thing they say is our current macroeconomic environment implies that there's going to be a ten to fifteen percent expansion twala monetary supply every year for the next three to five years in breakfast or more assets are going to inflate. Bitcoin is digital gold. And it's going to have the highest real yield because tween You can't pick any more of it old. The other investments are overvalued trades bonds our ethical stocks are grossly valued. Gold is a shitty says shitty store value that debases by two percent a year. Gold is a twenty twenty scam. You'll see governments and institutions pumping it to dump on retail investors who are misinformed because bitcoin is a thousand times better across all aspects. All these investments have some upside and more downside. In our opinion there is no way for the average person to get an etch. Bitcoin hasn't asymmetric proposition. You can get an edge here because it has a history that scared most people away. It hasn't been embraced by all the institutional community. That's changing fast. Now if you confront run this will this shift. Then you have an edge. It's being traditionally difficult to buy an old people can't pick up the phone and buy it if you go through the trouble of how to acquire insecure. It's that will give you an edge. It has all the technology upside of apple. Google facebook and amazon combined from a decade ago. And you saw what they did over the last decade. I get tweet namik says bitcoin is the so. That's a that's a combination. The fast fiber didn't i didn't segment in the b- go twenty six as they go on. Bitcoin is the successful successful digital monetary network. If you come into it right now you'll coming in at least so you're coming in at three hundred and fifty billion market cap. And it's unstoppable at this point so it makes sense to be at the ailey to this threat. Trend bowed pony trend. No threat as the price goes up. The value of the offering goes up because liquidity is the value proposition. This is an example of something where the higher the price the mo- value. We get the more people want to have it. And the more robust against this is not true with a stock as the price of a stock goes up it dilemma from its cash flow and it's p. price-to-earnings ratio goes from twenty to forty to sixty to a hundred as with many things as the price goes up. The risk gets higher with bitcoin. As the price goes up the gets lower. It's such a simple beautifully engineered. Winder that doesn't have all the competitive risks that so many other things have because it is so very simple is just twenty one million gold coins in cyberspace which divide all of the competitors. Bitcoin is the winner. They go on by one or a fraction of one and as people adopt the network value proposition increases as the technology gets better. The value proposition increases and his people like get more productive. They'll swap more cash flows into it and the value proposition increases. They go on to say and essential banks print more money. The value proposition increases again. That's just an elevator pitch. The bitcoin rabbit hole goes a lot deeper. If you're interested dilemma. Let us know we would like to thank the cyber hornets. The honey badges the huddle as the maximalists the developers and the good economists without them we would still be in the duck. Educate yourself look is when knowledge meets opportunity also followers for some amazing content. So they we got. They don't specify in this tweet stone. Exactly how much money into has millions of dollars they put into. Bitcoin as reserves micro strategy did actually say how much they put in. All this says in the fest we is. We've converted our entire reserves to bitcoin. So you know. One hundred percent of their reserves. So i suppose that means more doesn't it. What proportion of the company's assets will preserve the cash reserves. They put into bitcoin not the amount. 'cause if micro strategy said we've bought five hundred million dollars worth of bitcoin and that was only ten or twenty percent of their their reserves. It would make me less than putting all right. So i think that's a good metric. What proportion of the companies reserves not. How much money do they invest in it. Because that's more this objective risk that the company is taking rather than the objective value placed on the stack of money right so that we got restaurants the next company to put all of the business currency reserves into bitcoin. Who's going to be next. Who do you think's going to be next. Let me know.
Dance Theatre of Harlem Takes Ballet Outside The Theater
"Let's get back to ballet dancers. Alexandra hutchinson and derek brockton. They're part of the dance theatre of harlem twenty twenty company and co produced the viral video dancing through harlem also with this virginia johnson. She's the dance theatre of harlem artistic director. We got this message from brandy in maryland. I tina and i took ballet from about the time. I was four or five time i was twelve. I ended up having to quit because of the cost of valet lessons. But the thing that resonates for me is that many years later as an adult. I remember seeing alvin ailey performed for the first time and thinking my goodness if i had known that there were people like this people like me. Look like me who were doing ballet and other forms of dance. I might have thought really differently about what was possible for me as a dancer both in terms of where i could go even for dances a career but also in terms of relation to my party And thinking always that. I didn't have the right body to be a ballet dancer or i was too sick or too heavy. Thanks so much for sharing your story brandy alley any of what brandy said resonate with you. Yes it does It's so important to have role models to look up to when you're growing up so when i was at the washington school of ballet. I was at the virginia johnson scholar and i got to meet with her and i was introduced to some of the company and saw performance. And i still remember that to this day. Because it's so important when you're growing up to see that it is possible to achieve your dreams and so seeing other beautiful dancers. That look like me on stage was all i needed to give me that that push not courage to do it myself. You know for many children particularly little girls. There's this pervasive image of ballerinas very small and thin and pale and t and sort of graceful delicate whistle but as we said or dancers are are athletes. You're crazy strong and muscular derrick. Talk about some of the misconceptions surrounding ballet. And how maybe there's some subconscious racism or sexism at play there. There absolutely is a little bit. We find in ballet thought. It is about tradition so there are things that have been done a certain way for a very long time and when people see things that do not fit that norm it can. It can be fearful for them. That's the word because they're not used to it so seeing brown dancer in a line of all these a white ones it throws those but we opt to kind of kings perspective and no. There's nothing terrible read about it. It's just not what we're used to. And we have to accommodate that. It's a representation really really matters. And that's why i feel this video. Dancing do harlem has done so well because it is really offering so many people an opportunity to see themselves doing something that maybe they haven't seen before. I know we only have the two of you for another minute before. You have to go to rehearsal but alexandra very quickly talk about how art form is is giving you space to comment on reflect on some of the social justice questions that have arisen in the past few months yes So social justice is an issue today as it was when arthur mitchell founded the company fifty one years ago and so when we were given the task to create a video for harlem week we really wanted to set the bar really high and do our best because we knew that through social media you can reach so many more people and like virginia was saying earlier we now have to learn to put out social media instead of live performance. And so that's why we put our heart and soul into it because we knew that our is can be a form of protest and so showing places of harlem that people haven't necessarily seen in a beautiful light and dancing and being joyful in a time of so much tragedy Can bring people hope. That's alexandra hutchinson derek brockton. They're both members of the dance theatre of harlem twenty twenty company. They co produce dancing through harlem in part to celebrate the theatre's fiftieth anniversary alley. And derek. i gotta get to class so we'll let you go but thanks for joining us. Thank you for having us. Thank you so much for having
What Do I Do When My Friends Talk About Dieting?
"Alright. SO WE DO A. As promised. A we showed. Okay. I will read it. Man. Hey, Sammy any lean first off like every other email you read I, want to say how much I love your podcast and I. Thank you for sharing. Your intuitive eating. Journey is really opened my eyes and helped me a lot. I was deep engraved in Dia, culture for a very long time. Last November I competed in my first bodybuilding Bikini show and struggled so much post show with binge eating I continued to. Stick with the coach for almost a year after my competition trying to follow a strict workout, a meal plan and kept finding myself struggling so much with my relationship with food binging and body image. So I dropped the coach and I've recently been my own intuitive eating journey for a couple of months now, and I really couldn't be happier. However, what I am struggling with is the triggering language that a few of. My friends and family members use when it comes to their body slash eating habits. A few of my very close family friends are actually signed up with my previous coach and in deep quote diets, they're constantly justifying their food explanations to me or making comments about how they feel or look fat, etc. This is very triggering for me and makes me question my own food choices and body they know I am on. An into they know I'm on an intuitive eating journey and I post a lot about it on social media. So there's no surprise to them. However, I'm not sure how to handle these comments in person when they're made I, try my best to brush them off in reply with neutral responses but I'm finding very hard and it makes me question myself. How would you guys handle this thing so much your fellow intuitive eater. Yeah I mean, this is this is like this. This is the Pitta me of the challenge of of sort of going your own way with intuitive eating. I I think. It's like with anything like even even diets even eating anything you do is easy in a vacuum but. Released into the wild everything becomes more challenging because there's so many variables. Well, I'll just say that's Why I brought up the like ten thousand steps thing from this weekend like I found that that whole conversation to be dark triggering because like not because there's anything wrong with that. But because when I was dieting ten, thousand steps was like thing I had in my head as like. That's a method of losing weight not a method of like getting my body moving. So the intensity of like we need to move, we need to take as many steps like I was not like. It gave being Zaidi and let people were taking it too far. We're like I need to go walk around but yeah. Yeah. Right, it's like that and there's nothing like I'm not like again it's not about like the family or the friends who are doing this like like you know what I mean. It's all their fault. It's just more like. Necessarily bad and no, it's not. It's not like inherently bad at all and like it's it's not you can't blame them even but the like. You have your own feelings about it, and that's understandable and that's okay because of where you are on your journey and the whole thing I guess becomes about like. How do you internalize those messages without letting them? Without. And take them in sort of without. Letting them, derail you or examining them like non-judgmental Lee. About how they make you feel. and. It's OK that a certain message or a certain situation might make you feel certain in a certain time. It doesn't mean forever. It doesn't mean those things are inherently bad. It just means right now you're experiencing a certain emotion. So what like? I'll give my own example at the ten thousand steps like I felt like, okay I'm experiencing this. Let me observe it. Why is it making me feel this way like what? It triggering. Hate using that word but like what is it bringing up for me? What brought up for me was like a wet a certain old way of thinking and certain environments might bring that up for you or certain people might turn talking to certain people might bring that up for you and it's not those people's fall. It's it's. It's just something for you to grapple with and like like Ailey like you said like if it is easy in a vacuum when you don't have those like things coming up but when you do figuring out how to like. SORT. Of handle them internally is the process and that's okay that sometimes you will feel bad feeling bad is like feeling bad internally is not necessarily. A bad thing. It's just an emotion toe sorta bride I think just to add also on that there's two things you can like practically do and what I do. Is. Have on hand like a list of reasons why doing intuitive eating put make in a notes in your phone write it down some writing things is more I know just feels different than typing it because typing could be deleted but writing it feels more therapeutic and more natural. I don't know what it is just love handwritten note. Writing like why you're doing this, what your goals are with this? Like how do you want to feel and then anytime you feel like somebody says some comment that you're not necessarily feel strong enough for just go back to that list. And read it to yourself sort of like an affirmation. But also we get a reminder of why you're doing what you're doing. It doesn't make you weak at all to have to go back. And my other thing is just maybe take perspective of like. What the the comments that they make is from a different mindset. It's an old mindset that you don't want to assume it's something it's something you're trying to get rid of, and that doesn't make you better than anybody. It just makes you in a different place and just remind yourself like, oh, they're just in a different place than I am And I'm a new place and just kind of. Again like like you're saying, don't engage handle it neutrally like you're saying but it definitely very difficult. So what you can do the things that you can control so I think I would try to take those tools with you. Into these situations.
Alvin Ailey dance theater official fired after sexual misconduct
"At the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater has been fired after allegations of sexual misconduct. Troy Powell was the artistic director of Aley, too, in videos posted on TIC Tac dancers alleged that he demanded sex from men who wanted to join the company. One Michael Porter. The second has a contributor to the Observer. He says many of the allegations have gone unreported. But in some cases, dancers say the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater ignored their stories. I've spoken with the young dancer who attempted to tell a senior company member at the Daily Organization and was told point blank in his telling, I don't want to hear it. Don't talk to me about Troy. Spokesperson for the Dance company says it learned of the allegations in June and promptly launched an investigation. 85

"I ended twenty seven rough. I only blacked out once in my life, and it was it was. On the very boat back singing around of bohemian, rhapsody. It was believe it, and I was happy that I left her anyways. I wanted to point this out because you're going to be very excited to hear that. Well, I mean, I'm sure they're still casting. So you might get an opportunity get in there. But one of the co producers of the project is Julian breach, who. Wait. No, so Julian breach helped right when they see us and he's going to write the script. Oh, yeah. Okay. I am on board getting my tissue box ready. And I'm gonna be very very high rated before I go see it. Yeah because it should be amazing and also probably pretty sexy and awesome. Because if he's born in segregated Texas. And then he starts dance company at the age twenty seven, and you know, and then the dance company there, yes, they're gonna use dance to help tell that story. You know, of course, because Barry Jenkins is still poetic style as resting could talk it was such like you said he used it was like James about, like James Baldwin was telling the story it was so beautiful. So he is going to feel like Alvin Ailey is black. My wanna put him on his own. I think like Bosley will use dance atoll like those dance movie and use dance ballroom strictly ballroom dance that story and Moulin Rouge, it was about the words in the song, the music and the music told the story Romeo, and Juliet. The language and the language for the story, like Barry Jenkins able to do that on a deeper, more poignant more important level. Yeah. Baz Lerman is more fluff. But I get what you're talking about. Like Blake blackberry Jenkins. He embraces the medium that the movie is about. And I feel like this when he I feel like it's in good hands, that he's going to brace, the blackness, beauty stance, the physical bad. Because if you ever seen an Alvin Ailey production is gross. Too far. I am holding my child. Cash, you Meyer is you. You have no idea. I have refrained myself because I know baby is an arm's distance, I this was me feels. You're not refraining yourself. Now me filtered, I have refrained. Wow, what am I been listening to? Okay. Here comes comes punky like food. Yeah. Any who I really wanted to point everybody into the direction of this movie that's going to be made? It's going to be awesome. I'm excited. Who knows when it's going to be coming out, probably in the works getting made right now. Sounds like everybody's kind of cycling together to come together for this. This is a great story. And I had no idea that Elvis died at fifty eight like that. It was I had a feeling I would've w Allen study with them. I feel like she did. Or maybe I'm just confusing because her name is Alan and his name is Aley. Well, I don't know. I do know that she is shot sister, which I often forget, and then I reminded and I'm blown away every time, someone reality family talent, left, fam- amazing. And she's still she's she directs a lot. She's been dragged on Grey's anatomy. Being lady. Anyways, I think that they might have studied together, but she also I think she went to the fame school, so he could've danced with which, like, is a real school, though. No. Isn't it linked to LaGuardia? Then she was that a school that inspired, she went to the actual school. And then she was like, I know this story, high kick that makes sense. Yeah. Big so it could be wrong. Like, yeah, I know that the fame schools, not theirs. Inspired. Let's see graduate from fame. Jackson was class. Eight my grad. No, it's like the LaGuardia school for the arts or so. No. That's true. Okay. Well, Barry Jenkins. I'm available. And so as Maya. You can always Email us the tell. Yeah..

I was reading color lines a great blog for anybody who's into. Issues surrounding and LGBTQ, folks. And just, you know, I mean I. Yeah. I hope that's our listeners. It brought up a fact that berry Jenkins director of moonlight. And if those treat can talk and really great episode of your white people. Oh, yeah. That's right. I forgot that he did that he is going to be directing a film about Alvin Ailey heard about the, I'm so glad you're digging deep into this is one of those things I saw a headline and then just I was busy. So thank you happens. You know, I sat in read it. So I really wanted to touch on this because I just finished watching the FX show, Fosse Verdon, which is excellent. And I think that people should take a look at it, and they were kind of breaking the norm because everybody usually talks about Bob Fosse, and everything that. He's crazy graft and blah, blah, blah. But they never talk about his wife and artistic partner. God verdins. Yes. But why? Lady verdict. I gotta watch the whole series y'all. I'm standing breastfeeding right now. Get your get your luna-m claw nails down. Okay. If I was relaxed, I would remember. Oh, but she's busy feeding doing a podcast and just go watch all that jazz. Her name is mentioned in there. Yeah, it is. So we're prospered. When Gerda and yes Len when Glenn, Glenn. Oh, yeah. Glad Glenn bird. Gwen gwen. Okay. So anyways, I thought you know what more things need to be talked about that are black. And one of those is Alvin Ailey, and I'm so glad it's in the good hand of Barry Jenkins. So I thought let's talk about Alvin Ellie. I've always been lucky that I've, I've seen a lot of his productions since I was little, they travel around the United States. He has a dance company. The elven dance company comes to your neighborhood. Go see is. Oh my God. Go take classes there. It's, it's really great. So just to kind of touch on Alvin Ailey basically elva nearly he introduced everybody to the elven American theater in dance company and black modern dancers. Remember a lotta times who, who would be bully Nutley. You know, whatever it's because we were accepted into major dance companies. That's why so we had to create our own. So story. Right. Just got credit. Yeah. Because we have to not because we're segregating ourselves. So basically, the elva Neely American theater was introduced in nineteen fifty eight and the main calling card is a dance piece called revelations, which is beautiful. They perform it with whatever their touring what they will perform revelations. I highly suggest go same be moved by dance. So he also was honored with the John F Kennedy presidential special special international program for cultural presentations, in nineteen sixty two he performed for my people. I need gross in intentional in a collaboration with Duke Ellington in the same year nineteen sixty two and then also he was able to give. Jameson who is a conic dancer, her first appearance in the company in nineteen sixty five so he's lifting other people. So he was born in Texas. In in died in nineteen eighty nine at the age of fifty eight so he was young. He was soups young. Yeah. He died of a terminal blood discrepancy out, which is a rare disorder that affects the bone marrow and red blood cells. Which I mean I'm guessing had to be painful for a dancer, my God. 'cause it's bone marrow. You know. So that's crazy. So the year before he died, his dance company, valve Analia American dance theatre celebrated thirty years. Like I said before he was honored at the Kennedy Center, and he also received the Handel..

"He's the artist in residence for the Alvin Ailey American dance theatre and he joins us now from studio in Austin, Texas, Rennie Harris. Hello. Hey, how's it going, Tom? Not too bad. I'm feeling pretty good. It's it's cold up here though. Imagine. It's warmer in Austin this morning. Yes. It is. I bet. So so I'm curious about the the show Lazarus is not just a biographical piece about Alvin Ailey the reference in aren't always literal, even the title Lazarus being risen from the dead is interesting to me watch the bigger story you're telling about Alvin Ailey here. What I thought it was important to to talk about what was happening or. You know, I guess present aesthetic around what was happening politically, economically and socially while Mr. E. Alien American dance theatre was you know, they were holding up their flags. I'm moving to that time in that era. And I thought I thought that that was more important or not so much more important. But it was interesting to what was going on while he was you know, creating all the other works that he was creating at a time. I read that this was a challenge to you. Because for for a couple of reasons, but one is that typically you're not used to perhaps Korea choreographing shows so programmatic like around biography around a story and not not improvising. As much. Well, no, that's not necessarily the case. Almo- workers. Most of my work is narrative to that that I when I create for my company, or what have you what I'm not used to is that. When I'm given a topic. Creating granison topic. Yeah. Hominum given a topic is hard. To go. 'cause most of the time, you know, we moved from inspiration Raza, choreographer director, dancer, your inspire or artists you inspired to create. But when you already have the topic often taste takes while to find inspiration. So so growing up what did Alvin Ailey mean to you? You know, it was interesting. I didn't know of Mr. alley for a long time. Wasn't till. I eighty six was first time I heard of his name. It was really kind of focused on my own thing at the time because street dancer him, and and we were just an out, basically. Our world. It wasn't really until working with Alvin Ailey American dance theatre company that I really started to understand where he was coming from what it was doing. Do you see any of yourself in Albany story? Oh, yeah. Definitely. I mean studying the his work for the last year or so hours started. You know, sort of have moments of like, oh, hold up. I think that way or hold up. Yeah. That's what I say. You know that kind of thing, and it was really interesting to realize that to really confirm is on the right path about the the work in the work that I was producing myself. So did you ever come across the man in your in your travels in your in your work? Unfortunately, no, I have not. Yeah. Would have been great to have met him in before he moved on. Right. When you were doing all this research. And I mean, you know, rainy, I can only imagine them at work here. Right. Archival interviews watching everything you get your hand on. I got imagine. Something surprised you say that last part did something surprise you. But avenue that you didn't know going in. Yeah. You know, there was some things of like, you know, he was very inclusive. Like, you know, I think from an African American community. We we often think Alvin Elliot's just sort of black dance company holding up the fly for African Americans. But he was a very much humanitarian. And he his work was inclusive of everyone in his historic was just his story. You know what I mean? So wasn't that. It was I mean just turned out. It was a African American story. But you know, he opened up his doors for everyone and and had a multi-racial company as well. I wanna play a clip in a second. But given this a radio show or anything. It's so hard by dance on the radio sometimes, but I wanna talk a little bit about the choreography, which is based on a house dance formed called G Q that gerrad Philadelphia in the sixties, and I love this description. And this is why I bring it up. I read this description said you described it as there's change in your pockets, and you got to move your hips like trying to make the change jiggle. Tell me more about that threat. I just love that the script may be out of context a little bit, please. So when we were younger for this particular style, this is a street dance styles specific to to Philadelphia only move address up with your own suits. And what have you often this style of dance? You don't necessarily you don't need music because you're creating rhythm with your feet. Right. And so what we used to do as kids was tie. Sorry, so quarters and change into our pockets. So in case we had to dance or had a challenge or what have you? We were to have some sort of rhythm with changes. So we would dance and move that way with with the change in our pockets right on. So I wanna go back Lazarus a little bit here. Again, it can be hard to describe dance on the radio. But I want to give our listeners a sense of the feeling of watching this show Lazarus here's a bit of the opening music. We hear. Dogs on. I was writing. If you're just joining us. I'm Tom power..

"Choreographer Alvin Ailey created a home for dancers to explore identity in self expression through their art. That legacy continues to this day as America continues to confront its own history with racial violence. That's new propellers out your hip hop. Choreographer? Rennie Harris was commissioned for the company's ballet Lazarus a new piece which celebrates the company's sixtieth anniversary. It's raw and unapologetic collection of the African American experience and Alley's life. He said my work. It's about blood memories. And I thought like man, that's crazy. How do you address these complex issues like racial inequality through through dance? My tent was to be subtle to sort of presenting. So the sounds and movement that we will then give you a reflection or making think of a certain time or a moment. Water seeing for protest. Everybody was at the same level like this. So we lost all shape. I thought it was interesting to really delve into the idea of his life as in related to all black and Brown folks, later realize like, oh, this is not just all black and Brown, folks. Was like all right. All humans right at times. You see hands clasp is if praying then for a moment dancers crawl on hands and knees of reference to the great migration. Heads hang is if Lynch, and then there are scenes that reflect rights. And bloom into vibrant moods, perhaps to jesting the unbreakable spirit within to understand the dash. You have to know what was happening politically, economically and socially, right because movement is the last manifestation of your reality is what you do that confirms. Hopefully, I won't get this stage. At the studios and upper Manhattan dancer, Jacqueline Harris yourself as a storyteller. Energy that exists here special. It's really magical feel like Mr. Ailey cultivated a community that is so hopeful, and it's so diverse in its so inclusive, and that's something that people love that something that people celebrate what does it mean to be a black woman and be empowered to live that truth on the stage. And I say Ailey had a special place in his heart for black women being able to be a black woman and share that story with every audience that we encounter around the world. So I can show my strength, and I can show my beauty, and I can show that I am not to be putting a box labelled so empowering our audiences expect excellence, and that's what we deliver..

"To talk about some of these holiday traditions WNYC's. Dance critic Maureen Harz, marina, good morning. Good morning, Richard. Okay. We're not gonna talk about the nutcracker fine. This one we will talk about Alvin Ailey. All right, good. So other navies having its sixtieth anniversary season in which is quite big deal. And so in honor of Albany there amongst other things doing tributes by two choreographers who are very closely associated with a company one is Ronald k Brown, and the other one is Rennie Harris, and the wonderful thing is that they work in very different. Dan styles. But they have both worked a lot with the Ailey dancer. So the dancers really get their style. Rennie Harris is a hip hop. Choreographer? He's been around since the eighties. But what's really great about his Criag Affi is that he has developed this way of using hip hop in these larger pieces that combine pure dance with narrative and big ideas. So this piece is one of those it's an hour long piece. It's the first two parts original Criag graffiti for avenue alley and it kind of traces aliens experience, creating the company and also the racism, and the dynamics of society that were going on at the time that he created the company and what about Ronald k Brown? Well, his style combines a sort of west African dance form with Caribbean dance and with club dance. So he has it's very silken very seductive dance style that looks amazing on the Ailey dancers, and he has created a very intimate piece. So it's a nice contrast has three parts has a small group of dancers. And it's set to back in the first section jazz in the second section and Molly and music in the third section. theme is a little.
