Congrats to Day 5's winner... May 5, 2010

...3CountyLaugh!

Here's what he had to say about the distribution of film online:

I completely agree with Gina, but if my ONLY chance of seeing companies from around the globe is on-line, I’ll take it. If I’m hemming & hawing about $40 tickets to something I prefer a little on-line taste to know if it’s worth it to step deeper and spend the money.

To Matthew’s point about the MET’s HD. A friend of mine discovered he loved opera this way. Never would have spent the cash to see opera of any sort without this.

...ilvs!

Here's what she had to say about the relationship between installations  that use performers  and live theater:

is not art but stationary objects, materials, 2D, 3D, imbued with the artists intent, vision, and overall energy anyways? why not just cut out the middle person, the messenger? why drink from the plastic bottle when the pond is right there within reach.
ok, i dont recommend drinking from ponds, but you get the point.

....Kasia!

Here's what she thought is one of the biggest arts stories so far in 2010:

I may just be thinking locally here, but my mind immediately goes to 4Culture’s funding issues, and the push to get funding bills through the Legislature in a short, overloaded session (and then some!). Not particularly artistic, but it definitely got the policy nerd in me talking!
