Tell Me Why Podcast: Dance Choreographer Hilary Easton

In this edition of the 92nd Street Y's Tell Me Why podcast, host Julian Fleisher talks with Hilary Easton, native New Yorker and choreographer (she started her dance training at the Y at the age of 10), who will be presenting the world premiere of her witty, sensuous new dance-theater work, The Reclamation, at this year's Harkness Dance Festival in February.

Easton has been thinking about the connections and confusions between humans and nature. She looks at the way we romanticize the natural world while we fear and defile it, and at what sorts of corrections result from our interventions and abuses. In The Reclamation, the stage space (with its limitations) is a microcosm of our small planet, where dancers (Alexandra Albrecht, Michael Ingle, Joshua Palmer and Emily Pope-Blackman) and actors (Steven Rattazzi and Jean E. Taylor) vie for livable territory - and find it diminishing. The tension between man and the natural world is not straightforward - humans are not purely bad, nature is not always innocent, and the dance goes in some surprising directions.

The podcast offers both her serious and fun sides, even revealing her Jackson (Michael or Janet) preference.

Tell Me Why Podcast: David Zippel, Lyricist

In this edition of the 92nd Street Y's Tell Me Why podcast, host Julian Fleisher talks with Tony Award-winning lyricist David Zippel, whose credits include City of Angels, The Goodbye Girl, Hercules and Mulan, among others. Zippel, the artistic director for the next Lyrics & Lyricists concert at the Y in February, It Started With a Dream: Lyrics He Wrote, Lyrics He Wishes He Wrote, shares his plans for the show, what it's like working with Liza Minelli, his favorite lyricists (including Joni Mitchell and Billy Joel) and much more.

Third Age Traveler blogger wrote this today about our Lyrics & Lyricists Series:

With all the hidden treasures in NYC, it’s easy to pass one up. However, having just returned from the first program of the 39th season of Lyrics and Lyricists at the 92nd Street Y, a smile still on my face and a song—or many songs—in my heart, I must point out this gem.

Lyrics and Lyricists celebrates the Great American Songbook. These musical concerts are exceptional, and the talent covers the range of theatrical possibilities. Rob and I first attended a program when friends who had a subscription were unable to make a performance. The following year we began to subscribe. The theater is beautiful and spacious. I don't believe there is a bad seat in the house.
