John L. Sullivan http://kalw.org en Tough: A “punchy” one woman show http://kalw.org/post/tough-punchy-one-woman-show <p></p><p>Chris Black is a small woman. She’s five-foot-one and weighs just over a hundred pounds. But don’t let her size fool you. In a tank top that reveals well-muscled arms, and executing a punishing series of push-up-like movements, Black is looking pretty tough. In fact, “<a href="http://zspace.org/new-work/tough">Tough</a>” is the name of the dancer and choreographer’s newest piece. It’s a one-woman-show inspired by turn-of-the-century bare knuckle boxing champ John L. Sullivan, whose famous catchphrase went: “My name is John L. Sullivan, and I can lick any sonofabitch in the house.”<br /> Thu, 24 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0000 Jen Chien 47015 at http://kalw.org Tough: A “punchy” one woman show The Spot 1.23.14 Historical Recreations http://kalw.org/post/spot-12314-historical-recreations <p>99% Invisible<a href="http://99percentinvisible.org/episode/episode-72-new-old-town/"> "New Old Town" </a>The rebuilding of post-war Warsaw.</p><p>The Memory Palace <a href="http://thememorypalace.us/2013/12/shadowboxing/">"Shadowboxing"</a> The stories that were told about legendary boxer John L.
