Storyboard P, who earned the name 'storyboard' while in film school because of his masterful skill of storytelling on paper and later as a dancer, through his body movements, is said to have one of the more unique dance styles out there, seeming to even defy the physics of balance and gravity.
Check him out in his work with Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Kanye West, Fab 5 Freddy and many others.
The performance is part of MoCADA's public exchange series and also includes musical performances by IAMPOPULA, MosRuf and DJ Ason James.

The ballet performance is free to the public, begins at 7pm and takes place in Fort Greene Park near the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument stairs.
In Burrow, "12 women emerge from a mirage of World War II era styles, music and sounds. Watch the dancers construct, inhabit, & disassemble dwellings both primal & domestic," as described on the Bardos Ballet Theater's Facebook page. Burrow is an exciting new work that explores the role of women as architects of society while honoring those that waited on the home front during WWII. The work itself is inspired in large part by a diverse few people and others: Stanley's late grandmothers, both the wives of WWII soldiers, cyclical routine activities of daily life as well as burrowing animals, hence the piece's title.
Burrow debuts in a series of free dance sneak-attacks in select NYC parks, the second of which takes place tomorrow, Friday, 5/24 in Fort Greene Park. Feel free to bring a picnic blanket or a chair. Connect with the Bardos Ballet Theater on Facebook for additional information or any last minute venue changes due to weather conditions.
Hope to see you on Myrtle for pre- or post- performance dinner and drinks!

The wee ones' original tree panel design was selected in the second round of tree guard installations on Myrtle Avenue. Awwwww, start 'em young, folks!
The student’s designs were made into a tree bench and installed on Myrtle Avenue and Waverly.

Congratulations Trilok 'Grapes and Berries' class!
Myrtle’s tree guards are both functional and durable, and offer a ‘canvas’ that reflects local creativity. They were created with a modular design so that each set of panels can have a unique, laser-cut design, meeting the Partnership’s goal of creating more opportunities to incorporate local public art into the streetscape. The newest tree guard panels were designed by 24 local artists, who were selected through an open call for public art. Phase II was funded by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn BID, NYS DEC Urban and Community Forestry, and NYS Main Street.
Trilok Center for Arts & Education is located at 143 Waverly Avenue, just north of Myrtle Avenue. They can be reached at 718.797.1700 or trilokfusion.com.
