Messing around with the French

PLAYING WITH CINEMA
AMERICAN PERFORMERS EXPERIMENT WITH FRENCH FILMS

Saturday, October 22, 6:30 

Miguel Gutierrez
The National Theater of the United States of America
Annie-B Parson
Dan Safer 

Melissa Anderson, host

Co-presented with The Invisible Dog Art Center and Les Subsistances
American artists will use a few minutes of a French movie (Godard, Tati, Demy, Melville) as the basis of their performances, experiencing the tension between images and bodies on stage and questioning the affinities between the imaginative world of movies, and the imagination of a performer. What kind of relationship can a performer have with an image on stage? Moving pictures can have an intense presence and catch the eye, and even compete with the physical presence of the performers. The performers then have to deal with it, either through appropriation or rejection: pictures on stage impose some form of negotiation.
