I had a fantastic first trip to Kiev last week! It was a short but productive visit to the bustling, booming capital of Ukraine. What a thrill to visit this vibrant city – so full of life, even in February. Between meetings I was able to spend a few short hours exploring the city, ducking into gorgeous churches under golden domes and even visiting Maidan Nezalezhnosti – “Independence Square” – the city’s central plaza made so famous in recent years.
The World Premiere of Frantic Beauty marks LEIMAY’s return to BAM Fisher for the third installment of their BECOMING pentalogy. Co-conceived, designed, and directed by Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya and featuring the LEIMAY Ensemble, this original dance theater work reflects on society’s pursuit of and relationship to beauty. In Frantic Beauty, the multidisciplinary duo navigates this intricate thematic terrain by engulfing the audiences in trembling images, layering striking physicality and textured video landscapes, lushly scored by the Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal (House of Cards). — SOURCE: BAM website
On Friday evening, July 28th, a good number of Boyle Software’s New York City team gathered at Mia Chef Gelato in Manhattan to share some time and beverages together – and to learn how to make some delicious and refreshing gelato! Chef Jason walked us through the ingredients and science behind the popular Italian ice cream – including the use of the $25,000 Carpigiani gelato machine!
We had a great time last week at our annual summer party for Boyle Software staff, family, and friends. Though some ominous clouds rolled in and a few drops of rain were felt, our sunset sailing excursion on the Hudson was a success all around. The sun did make an appearance, beaming its red and orange glow beneath the cloud cover as it sank behind the New Jersey horizon!
The torrential rains cleared out of NYC just in time for the annual Boyle Software summer party – phew! A great time was had by all – wonderful to spend a non-work evening chatting with co-workers, family, friends, and clients. A special thanks goes out to The Lonesome Prairie Dogs for keeping the music swingin’ – yeehaw!
To all of our families, friends, colleagues, and clients: Have a happy and safe Fourth of July! Let freedom ring and don’t eat too many hamburgers!
