|Mariana J. Plick Cirque Squelettique|
as I like to do for my readers, I'll let Mariana (Annie) tell you her story::
I'm a circus performer and director. After residing in Philadelphia, then New York City, I moved to Montréal. While practicing in New York City, I enrolled in a professional program at Circus Warehouse, a circus training facility which trains acrobats. TheHiveNYC is my artistic home.
The Hive is resolution. In New York City, a casino of dreams, artists habitated for decades in a mecca of creativity. With an expensivity incline, higher priced housing, and the foundations of capital enterprise, such people now find an inhospitable economic environment there. The natural environment itself in New York suffered losses, trees dying amidst concrete body bounds in sidewalks littered by refuse and vomit.
Not all of the city embodies this view, but a lot of the terrain speaks exactly to such dystopian visions. Those for whom creativity evolves of empathy and emotion encounter difficulties for such to flourish while crammed into a metal subway car in direct proximity to several drained individuals, whose vision for their lives in New York bespoke something so far from what they've managed to find there.

I met Jason Yellen while at the Hive, on a day I made a video with Yula, Sarah Zar, and some others. He had actually read poetry at the first event I produced/directed in Philadelphia, called The Elegant Skeleton at Bookspace, an eccentric concoction of circus, poetry, and music. I began a mini Hive in Philadelphia at Bookspace for a Summer with the help of some friends, but once I moved to New York it was absorbed back into the ensconces of the city.

These ideas are still formulating and won't be tangible to the extent I would like for a little while, but I plan to focus much more on trees.
Amazing....another wonderfully creative spirit who calls TheHiveNYC 'home'.
...my thanks to Mariana for her words about 'Artists in NYC' and The Hive, and the amazing founder of it..... Yula Beeri...and it's life's blood, Jason Yellen.
