SoHo’s Preview Showcases Athletic Apparel and Technology Brands

ACTIVE RECOVERY: As its name suggests, the new SoHo store Preview is a base camp of brands for men who like to be athletic or at least look like they do.
The 4,000-square-foot store at 134 Prince Street offers a bevy of sporty brands that complement wearables — and other tech items. The permanent space includes an initial assortments from Olivers, Zaerobe Rec, Wheelers V, Fourlaps, Twenty Montreal, Endeavor Athletics, Aeance, Swet Tailor, Hickies and Helmm. Health and technology partners include Amazfit, Whoop, Halo Neuroscience, Hyperice and Reverie. Halo, for example, uses headsets to enhance neuropriming to try to improve athletes’ motor skills and performance levels.
Preview’s ethos is segmented into three areas — In Action, In Transit and In Recovery — which are meant to reflect the three pillars of urban life. Founders Geoff Harris and Wesley Collins spent a year scouting locations and interviewing potential brands. Before they culled their final list of sports-minded vendors, they approached the brands via customer support lines and often wound up talking to the founders of various companies. Harris said, “We interviewed them, walked around the city, talked about our plans and what we saw as a need for this.”

Dior Cruise 2019: Preview

Maria Grazia Chiuri may have curbed her wandering instincts for this year’s Christian Dior cruise show, but her inspiration travels across continents.
Chances were strong that her collection, to be unveiled on Friday night in the Great Stables of the Domaine de Chantilly, would weave in an equestrian theme, but the designer is sure to surprise with outfits inspired by the female riders, called escaramuzas, that compete in Mexico’s version of rodeo.
With their embellished sombreros and embroidered cotton dresses, which flare out into tiered skirts layered with petticoats, the riders cut dashing figures as they perform stunts at full gallop, all the while riding sidesaddle.
The fearlessness of the sport taps right into Chiuri’s love for strong women, a running thread in all her collections since she took over as creative director for women’s wear in 2016, marking her debut show with “We should all be feminists” T-shirts.
“The reason I like the escaramuzas is because they do something that is so macho — rodeo — in our vision, but they decided to do that in their traditional dresses which are so pretty, so feminine,” she said during a fitting at Dior’s ready-to-wear workshop in Paris.

Gear.Club Unlimited Nintendo Switch Hands-On Preview

Gear.Club Unlimited is in the enviable, and risky, position as the first proper racing game on the  Nintendo Switch, and it succeeds, in context.

For a PC sim racing player, it’s easy to be frustrated at AAA simcade games that are severely limited by the lack of hardware availability. Why bother wrestling an ultra-realistic Koenigsegg with all the assists off when you’re stuck with a non-customizable wheel or a controller? These frustrations don’t exist with Gear.Club Unlimited, since the game doesn’t present itself as feathering the edge between real-life and virtual racing.

This isn’t to say that the game is completely lacking in physics, but rather that it has just enough of it. The real success is the game’s pick-up-and-play factor. The varying cars differentiate enough to translate through the controller. You can tell the difference between the weightiness of a BMW M4 and a Lotus Elise’s petite figure. The straightforward selection of driving assists will enable less experienced racers to attempt competing with the veterans. The hardest settings provide veteran racers enough of a challenge with the Switch Joy-Cons / Pro Controller to keep wanting to play, but without often-frustrating pseudo-realism. It’s fun in the way that older Need for Speed titles are fun. You pick up the controller, choose the car that you have on a wall poster, and race.

Cumberbacchanalia: A Preview Night With Benedict Cumberbatch and Hamlet

2015-08-20-1440089503-1082023-CumberbatchHamlet6.jpg

Author’s disclaimer: before you pounce on me with outraged shrieks for “reviewing” a preview, these are my impressions from the preview of 11 August. The new production of Hamlet at the Barbican Centre, London, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Dane, opens August 25. Proper reviews now ensue; read them. Some of the things I liked most (Cumberbatch’s performance; Ciarán Hinds’s command of every scene he’s in) will only have strengthened by opening night. Some of the things I thought awful (dire direction; the choices of textual cuts, and rewriting Shakespeare’s language) will perforce remain.

We bought tickets a year ago, and gathered with friends, making a pact not to talk about the show until it was over. From the first row of the balcony, a couple of stories high, we could see the whole vast sweep of the Barbican’s mighty stage, which is spectacularly but strangely used. The great hall serves as everything from the battlements (badly) to the graveyard, and the way it decays as the play goes is excellent.

Why the play began with Hamlet strewn like a lovely throw-rug across the stage, mooning over a turntable, inhaling the scent (presumably his father’s) on an old military jacket and then launching into “To be, or not to be” was self-evident. People are coming to see Cumberbatch. If people know anything about Hamlet, they know the first line of the most famous soliloquy in the play. Director Lindsey Turner served up first what’s most wanted. It is not a decision I liked, though it has power. An inappropriate Nat King Cole record spun into silence, and The Star spoke The Big Speech. The mad miraculous beginning of the play, with frightened soldiers on the battlements, in the mist, at midnight, uncertain of identity or friends, reality or imagination, was entirely lost.*

Hamlet is a notoriously corrupt text — or texts. It’s a stack of foul papers, and there is no definitive version of the play. Yet to take some sort of imagined advantage of this by hacking out many of the play’s best lines, and chopping and changing words, phrases and entire scenes to stick them in unfamiliar mouths and places, was for me the worst thing about this production. Hamlet is no sacrosanct work of theatre; I enjoy productions that recognize its changeable vitality, and tamper with it. Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is one of my favorite plays. Yet I was disconcerted from the start. Why should Hamlet be the one asking “Who’s there?” and why should it turn out to be Horatio? If you’re going to do something like this in the theater, it has to have a point. I saw none. The point seemed simply to simplify. Do that to Hamlet, and in the end you’ll find you have eliminated its passion, joy and emotion. Cumberbatch valiantly works to keep all those things present in this play, but he needs Shakespeare’s language to fly with him.

This said, Cumberbatch is radiant on stage. In a play increasingly a star vehicle — and I have seen Hamlets from Daniel Day-Lewis (the best, at the National Theatre in 1989) to Ralph Fiennes, Stephen Dillane and Jude Law — Cumberbatch joins the ranks competently. Gone is the Sherlock goth-black dye job. His tumble of chestnut curls is in its natural state. He delivers lines and expressions to the whole theatre, chin raised to show his face clearly. It is slightly heart-shaped, which I hadn’t realized before, and this exaggerates even more his vari-colored greenish eyes, chatoyant and huge.
2015-08-20-1440089351-9224303-CumberbatchHamlet3.jpg

Cumberbatch’s finest moments are the “O, what a rogue and peasant slave” soliloquy (II.ii), and his two brief speeches to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. His “I have of late — but wherefore I know not — lost all my mirth” (II.ii) is superb, as is the stinging speech in III.ii likening himself to a flute upon which they seek to play. He roves the stage energetically, still confined and infantilized as a boy prince, a man who should be king but for his uncle’s wicked intervention. Hamlet dressed as a toy soldier, playing in a castle he drags into the great hall, makes this point particularly, and Cumberbatch is brilliant in his frustrated rage. He also excels as Hamlet the actor, literally taking the part of one of the performers (the poisoner nephew) in “The Mousetrap.” Yet the lines that cement and conclude this side of Hamlet have been cut, Fortinbras’s direction:
“Bear Hamlet, like a soldier, to the stage;
For he was likely, had he been put on,
To have proved most royally[.]”

2015-08-20-1440089916-7065327-CumberbatchHamlet5.jpg

Hamlet has to be cut to be performed in three hours. However, not just eliminating, but changing the words of, Shakespeare’s text is rotten. On August 11, ditties became songs; Hamlet found more things in our philosophy, Horatio, not your; Ophelia was sewing in her chamber, not her closet. Hamlet’s gleeful welcome to the players is gutted, as his long directorial discourse to the First Player. The lyric pseudo-philosophical line from his letter to Ophelia, “Thine evermore dear lady, whilst this machine is to him, Hamlet” – gone. “It would cost you a groaning to take off my edge” – gone, as were many of the play’s sexier lines. (This is not, despite its appealing star, a sexy Hamlet.) Polonius’s observations that “beautified Ophelia” is an ill phrase, and that “mobled queen” is good, are gone. Gertrude picks up a cup at the end, and walks around with it — but gone is that chilling line announcing her present death, “The Queen carouses to thy health, Hamlet.” All is left out of joint hereby. The hobby-horse is forgot.

I was so distressed by the language-mangling that I couldn’t enjoy the show much at first. My calm friend, film critic Scott Jordan Harris, brought me around at the interval. “It’s more cinematic than Olivier’s movie of Hamlet,” he observed, and he’s right. A movie production for a movie star.
2015-08-20-1440089598-2201159-CumberbatchHamlet7.jpg

Ciarán Hinds, his large body as graceful and stealthy as a cat’s, is Claudius. By the interval, I realized he was redeeming this Hamlet for me. The first half concludes with Hinds standing unmoving as bright light and rubbish blast across him from three sides, and Elsinore begins to crumble around him. With his sneer of cold command slowly giving way to fear and despair, his eyes drowning pools of horror and sorrow, Hinds is spectacular. No wonder the director removes some of Claudius’s best lines and gives them to Gertrude. It’s a terrible error; but was it deemed necessary to keep Hinds from ruling the show?

The wonderful Jim Norton (of Bishop Brennan fame via Father Ted) is wasted as Polonius. His lines are cut to ribbons, reducing him to a one-dimensional cartoon of the unseen good old man. His relationship with Hamlet, so important for the play’s success, is almost entirely eliminated. You lose the wordplays and jokes that show his understanding of the prince, and Hamlet’s affection for the man whose daughter he loves.

2015-08-20-1440089697-868394-CumberbatchHamlet2.jpg

Anastasia Hille, as Gertrude, is only ten years older than Cumberbatch as Hamlet. They look to be about the same age on stage. When Hamlet scolds Gertrude in III.iv, telling her that at her age the blood is tame, the audience laughed. Hille, slumping from the waist and sawing the air with her hands, stood more like a Tennessee Williams matriarch than a woman who’s been a queen twice over.

Karl Johnson, doubling the roles of King Hamlet’s ghost and the gravedigger, is particularly good as the latter, though he has to prepare Ophelia’s grave while Frank Sinatra croons “All Of Me.” The two gravediggers’ conversation is one of the most reflective moments of the play, and almost the only featuring lowborn everymen rather than courtiers and royalty. To cut it to one man singing along with Frankie, as he lifts out and itemizes body parts, is a dumbed-down game of bones. The scene depends on the back-and-forth between the gravediggers and Hamlet for its humor. Now the humor fails — though the audience tittered at “Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him, Horatio.” It’s not a funny line at all, but the sight of Cumberbatch adopting the pose and holding that skull is evidently caviar to the general.

Horatio (Leo Bill) trails through Elsinore in a flannel shirt, carrying a rucksack and looking like a nebbishy survivor, not of the destruction of the Danish royal family, but of a third-rate music festival. Why? There’s no reason provided, via his actions or character, for this nobleman and dear friend of Hamlet’s becoming something so diminished. Similarly, Ophelia is styled as a photographer and pianist, but we don’t know why, and nothing is really done with this. Sian Brooke’s performance is keen and fine, in what can be a thankless role for young actresses often reduced to ranting and skipping. (In a brilliant moment, just before Ophelia enters, “distracted,” Gertrude comes onstage with her blonde hair askew, barefoot, in a slip – and for one moment you think the two women have entirely shifted character).

Visual moments abound to enrich this Hamlet — very necessary, where so many words are gone. The use of a full-length portrait of old Hamlet, and a commemorative plate with the face of Claudius, when Hamlet compares the two in III.iv is funny, and an appropriate recognition of the appetites that lead Claudius to crime and punishment. Ophelia, stricken by her father’s death, gathers the bloodstained arras just as Hamlet has held his father’s coat at the start. As they are seconds from death, Gertrude says to her son, “Come, let me wipe thy face.” Cumberbatch shifts his head like a little boy, protesting, and it’s one of the most intimate moments in the production.

2015-08-20-1440089752-4120374-CumberbatchHamlet4.jpg

At the end, Cumberbatch stepped forward and applauded the audience: I’d seen the flash of a camera only once (though that was once too many). He well deserved the applause in return. Yet this is the first Hamlet I’ve ever seen that left me dry-eyed at the end. “Flights of angels sing thee to thy rest” didn’t even do it. The rest of our company had reactions as mixed as mine. I went home and couldn’t sleep — haunted by all the things that could have let this evening skyrocket. May the individual excellence of the actors, and the eternally powerful bones of the text, elevate the production, by opening night, to what it should and could be.

*A report of August 19 says that “To be, or not to be” has been restored to its traditional place in Act III, just before Hamlet’s “get thee to a nunnery” confrontation with Ophelia — which it sets up perfectly, and which was sadly amputated and passionless the night we saw the play.

Preview Trent Reznor’s Eerie ‘Gone Girl’ Soundtrack

Can’t wait to see “Gone Girl“? Instead of rereading Gillian Flynn’s best-selling book again, you can now preview the soundtrack (or maybe do both together).

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have teamed up with David Fincher again for another likely award-winning score. The duo previously won the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Original Score for “The Social Network” and also took home a Grammy for their “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” soundtrack. As far as their “Gone Girl” score, Reznor and Ross’ have described it as “really terrible music you hear in massage parlors.” But that’s not all — they told the Wall Street Journal that it starts off as music that’s trying to give you a hug, then begins to “curdle and unravel.”

If you’re way too excited to wait until the film is released on Oct. 3 for a listen, you can now preview the score on the Nine Inch Nails website. Stereogum points out, however, that there appears to be another part of the score streaming on Tumblr that was ripped from the “Gone Girl” website. They both sound awesome and are already giving us chills.

CHOMSKY’S VESSEL: Art Preview

I’m pleased to note that Gary Lloyd’s 1978 work, “Chomsky’s Vessel,” will once again be on public display in “Valley Vista,” a group show curated by Damon Willick and opening in August at CSU Northridge. I wrote about this particular piece when it was last shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in 2010. Here are some updated thoughts:

2014-06-30-photo.JPG
“Chomsky’s Vessel,” 1978, 44″ x 8″ x 12″, Encyclopedia Americana and chain binder. Collection Michael Salerno, Los Angeles. Photo: Gary Lloyd

A remarkable, insistently physical presence, Gary Lloyd’s “Chomsky’s Vessel” is a powerful and complex poetic metaphor expressed through the juxtaposition of two apparently incompatible elements: the complete edition of an Encyclopedia Americana, “dug out” in the manner of a primitive canoe and clamped together by means of the second element, a heavy chain binder. The piece is intended for display on the floor, where we look down into it from above–and where, low as it is in stature, it might actually trip up the unconscious gallery-goer and shock him into a proper state of awareness!

The work’s power, surely, lies in part in the deceptive simplicity of its statement, its unequivocal “there”-ness. But penetrate beyond its physical presence, and you find yourself in a rich tangle of associations. Given the vulva represented by its interior and the phallus represented by the solid, unyielding handle of the chain, we think of male and female, the yin and the yang, and the snug, if complex relationship between the two: suggested here is the kind of constriction (social, cultural, emotional) against which women have understandably rebelled in the last century of our human history. The female element, though, calmly evokes the power of the internal, the container “vessel,” the place of safety.

We may think of the essential lightness of the canoe–a craft that is eminently adapted to the natural environment, speedy and easily maneuverable, propelled across the surface of the water by no more than the natural current and the strength of its occupant; in “Chomsky’s Vessel,” though, it is juxtaposed with and, again, constricted by, the weight of the tomes that give it form, and of the rough chain that binds it. Our minds turn to the aboriginal intelligence of our species, envisioning through the sheer power of the imagination the potential of a tree (and yes, green reader, the encyclopedia was certainly at one time a tree!), and crafting from its trunk the boat that will transport a man more efficiently than his feet. We think, in this context, of the labor involved, and the primitive means of making, the hammer and chisel, in relation to the high-tech tools we have at our disposal in our world today.

We think, too, of the great achievements of our species, language, science and technology, the sum of everything peculiarly human that the encyclopedia contains within its covers by way of “information.” We think of the violence perpetrated on an object in which our culture has invested so much respect: the book, lynchpin of half a millennium of human progress. We may even speculate further into the future on the questionable persistence of this hitherto esteemed medium of communication… We may question whether knowledge itself is now constricted by our society’s politically willful ignorance–ignorance about, say, our misuse of the planet that we call our home; and wonder whether the binder is one of our own making, or one imposed on us by powers (corporate? governmental?) greater than our own.

We may, finally, wonder about our traditional way of thinking about art itself, how we define it–in this case “sculpture.” For Gary Lloyd, the artist, “Chomsky’s Vessel” represents “the voyage into the unknown and the compression of ideas into objects”–the essence of the sculptor’s art. It’s about “the primitive exploration of tools and mechanics, and a break from the plinth”–the pedestal upon which the sculpture and, by extension, art itself has been placed by an overly reverent and consumerist elite, an object of veneration, never to be touched by human hand–nor accidentally tripped over!

Or we may step back, away from all the rationalization of meanings and associations, and allow the poetic metaphor of the piece to do its work, grabbing hold of our imagination with nothing but its stubborn, irreducible presence. This, of course, is the work of poetry, the work of the poetic object that the artist has created. And then we may decide to rest there, instead of thinking it all through, in pleasurable contemplation of its mystery.
