The Ballet, which formed a partnership with New York’s famed American Ballet Theatre in 2012, has faced a series of financial obstacles in recent years. Some programs failed to generate expected revenues. There has been diminished support from a key donor, John Fry, CEO of Fry’s Electronics, who has donated more than $20 million to the troupe in the last decade but has been dialing back the level of support for years. Old debts, including a $500,000 tax bill that is currently being negotiated with the IRS, have also piled up.

The disagreement has gotten contentious, and a bit personal for Glassman, he said, so he’s ready to move past it, What that means for Asefaha and the Alena Museum is less clear, They’ve retained James Cook, an Oakland attorney, to fight the court order demanding they vacate the space, Since ballet slippers shoes applique machine embroidery design ballerina Asefaha lives there, along with two other housemates, Cook contends Glassman’s eviction order is inadequate, Glassman can’t simply kick out the Alena Museum as a business, he must evict each tenant individually and show just cause for doing so, per Oakland’s rental laws, Cook said..
“It’s a very Cold War, black-and-white graphic novel,” says the filmmaker. “(I thought) why not focus on the city of Berlin at that time, which was full of color and life and music and punk rock?

But the story is still that. The characters are still complex, but the world is fun and exciting and commercial.”.
