  • Stole the Show: Director's Cut

    Kygo

    Year: 2018

    Runtime: 51 min

    "Stole The Show drops us into the heart of the music streaming revolution.
    Our story follows the rise of Kygo, the first star born in this new streaming age. His success across streaming platforms, driven by his invention of the “tropical house” genre, changed the fundamental rules of how an artist succeeds.
    Stole The Show centers around Kygo's first arena show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, using it as a lens to examine not only Kygo's journey from his bedroom studio in Bergen, Norway, but also the revolutionary rise of streaming.
    Before Barclays, Kygo was in an oddly indefinable position. His success felt major, becoming the fastest artist in history to reach one billion streams. However, no one had been in this position before, so there were no common benchmarks to go by. He needed a test to gauge his standing outside of the digital world. Barclays Center was that test, and the sold-out results reflected a resounding success. Stole The Show, featuring Bono, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, and Shaggy, examines Kygo's ascent within this brave new world of streaming, following his career from before it could be called a career through the moment he officially broke through the ceiling in Brooklyn, and beyond."

    In this remarkable video, "The New Dance Group Gala Concert: Retrospective 1930s-1970s" viewers will enjoy viewing dances of some of the most influential Modern Dance pioneers including: Mary Anthony, Ronne Aul, Talley Beatty, Valerie Bettis, Irving Burton, Jane Dudley, Jean Erdman, Eve Gentry, Joseph Gifford, Hadassah, Sophie Maslow, Donald McKayle, Daniel Nagrin, Pearl Primus, Anna Sokolow, Joyce Trisler, Charles Weidman. The American Dance Guild created a one-time concert, which is a unique historic retrospective of the Modern Dance choreographers of THE NEW DANCE GROUP from the 1930's to the 1970's. This concert of 18 recreated dances and excerpts celebrates and honors the achievements of the New Dance Group in its heyday. At the time, the choreographers of the dances featured in this video were a dramatic voice for social change. These choreographers came from the 1930's tradition of idealistic artistic innovators who aimed to make dance a viable statement about the injustices of the world. The GALA Concert presents the original choreographers, or their artistic heirs, together with excellent professional dancers in a program of influential and compelling works. The GALA Concert was produced by the American Dance Guild in June 1993, and includes mini-interviews with the choreographers. The video includes such legendary dances as: "the solo Masterpiece of the decade", THE DESPERATE HEART (1943) by Valerie Bettis, and the darkly dramatic LYNCHTOWN (1936) by Charles Weidman. There are important dances that highlight the American black experience, such as Pearl Primus's THE NEGRO SPEAKS OF RIVERS (1944), and Donald McKayle's portrayal of the experience of chain gangs in RAINBOW ROUND MY SHOULDER (1959). Also featured are Modern Dances true mavericks, including Anna Sokolow's LYRIC SUITE (1954), Daniel Nagrin's STRANGE HERO (1948) and Sophie Maslow's FOLKSAY (1942).
