Staff Picks


Back in the days of bricks-&-mortar video rental outlets, there used to be a “Staff Picks” section. With so much web content to stream, enjoy, and keep us indoors and happy, we decided to post some of our own “staff picks” every second Friday.

Have a culturally enriching weekend! 🙂

Eda, Centaur’s Artistic & Executive Director, really likes the Nederlands Dans Theater. She danced one of NDT Director Jiří Kylián’s ballets, when she was with San Francisco Ballet and says, “it is a phenomenal company and has produced a number of amazing choreographers.” Stream a different ballet from the company every Friday! 

Eloi, Centaur’s Marketing & Communications manager,  loves Cirque du Soleil. Check out a new 60-minute Special every Friday. Everyone deserves a little Soleil!

For your listening pleasure, Barbara (our Communications & Web Copywriter) discovered a rock n’ roll treat recorded last year that is uber-appropriate these days. Lend your ears to Jeff Beck & Johnny Depp’s brilliant cover of John Lennon’s Isolation.

Camille, our Administrative Assistant, loved the amazing Rock Bottom Movement collective and their piece, hollow mountain, at Wildside 2020. Now you can stay lean AND be entertained with a live weekly dance session on Instagram from these innovative dance theatre makers every Sunday at 4PM  … totally for non-dancers! Go to IG @rockbottommovement or follow them on Facebook. And a 5-6-7-8!

Development Director, Haleema, has been binging on a different FREE Andrew Lloyd Webber show every week, courtesy of  YouTube’s “The Show Must Go On” channel. This week, The Shows Must Go On will be following up the iconic The Phantom of the Opera with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s lesser-known sequel, Love Never Dies.

This story picks up 10 years after the final events of The Phantom of the Opera, and tells the story of Phantom and Christine’s new lives, and how they ultimately reconnect. This 2012 film production stars Ben Lewis and Anna O’Byrne as the Phantom and Christine, respectively. The show will air this Friday, April 24, at 2 PM (EDT) and is available for 48 hours.

Ever the pragmatist, Centaur’s Production Manager, Howard, recommends a site with useful everyday info. Moon cycles, frost warnings and planting tips from the Farmer’s Almanac!

See you in a couple weeks with more staff picks!

Stay safe, Centaur staff
