An Interview with Choreographer/Director Ian Berg

It was one of those nights. I didn’t want to leave the house. The snarled, rude, rush hour traffic, coupled with a lack of parking in Central Square, confirmed my mood. I was asked to film a tap dance performance at the Dance Complex, and the thought of banging metal shoes on a wood floor was not conducive to my bad mood. I was braced for agony.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

“Kill It To Save It”

An Autopsy of Capitalism’s Triumph over Democracy

On May 4, 2017, the Harvard Book Store was standing room only for “Kill It To Save It” author Corey Dolgon’s book reading and Q&A session. Dolgon was a gracious and affable host to a large group of friends, family, colleagues, mentors, and as he put it “new friends.”

Paper or Plastic?

It turns out that, indeed, plastic is indestructible

I am so p***ed!

Like so many of you, I’m diligent about always having cloth bags in my car.  I put on a smug face when I buy something in a less-evolved city and am asked “paper or plastic?”  In such cases I bring out a nice, clean, foldable bag I keep in my purse for such occasions.  I whip it out and shake it open so my fellow shoppers can see how environmentally aware I am. 

It’s written all over my face:  “I’m from Cambridge.  We are civilized.”

April 2, 2017

It was a beautiful day. For the first time in a long time, the air was warm and the sun was shinning, and it was a perfect day to stroll over to the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) on Prospect Street for an Open Mosque Day.
