Independent Documentary Series: BURROUGHS THE MOVIE

Friday, March 6th, 2015 7:00 pm
$10
BUY TICKETS HERE WATCH THE TRAILER HERE Re-mastered and recently re-released, Burroughs:The Movie (1983) explores the life and times of controversial Naked Lunch author William S. Burroughs, with an intimacy never before seen and never repeated. The film charts the development of Burroughs’ unique literary style and his wildly unconventional life, including his travels from the American Midwest to North Africa and several personal tragedies. Burroughs: The Movie is the first and only feature length documentary to be made with and about Burroughs. The film was directed by the late Howard Brookner. It was begun in 1978 as Brookner's senior thesis at NYU film school and then expanded into a feature which was completed 5 years later in 1983.  Sound was recorded by Jim Jarmusch and the film was shot by Tom DiCillo, fellow NYU classmates and both very close friends of Brookner's. William S. Burroughs (February 5, 1914 - August 2, 1997) was an American author and visual artist, most well known for his literary works including Naked Lunch. Born in 1914 Burroughs was the grandson of William Seward Burroughs I, founder of the Burroughs Corporation. Beginning in 1932 Burroughs was educated at Harvard University, studying English, and anthropology as a postgraduate. Later he attended medical school in Vienna. Having been turned down by the US Navy and Office of Strategic Services in 1942 Burroughs ‘dropped out’ and became addicted to heroin, before befriending mutual founders of the Beat Generation Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. “Rarely is a documentary as well attuned to its subject as Howard Brookner's Burroughs, which captures as much about the life, work and sensibility of its subject as its 86 minute format allows. Part of the film's comprehensiveness is attributable to William S. Burroughs' cooperation, since the author was willing to visit old haunts, read from his works and even playfully act out a passage from Naked Lunch for the benefit of the camera. But the quality of discovery about Burroughs is very much the director's doing, and Mr. Brookner demonstrates an unusual degree of liveliness and curiosity in exploring his subject.” -Janet Maslin - New York Times (October 8, 1983)

Fleet Movement Explorations

Sunday, March 8th, 2015 3:00 pm
Drop in dance workshop, by donation
Fleet Movement Explorations is an experimental dance class in which we explore, among other things, developmental movement patterns while sensing ourselves in space, weight, time, and the three dimensions. This is extended to explore the articulation of movement initiations and refinement of body alignments. We play with evoking movement though qualities of feeling, shape, force, idea, word and more. From this basis, we work out interactive improvisational skits. The class is basically informal, challenging, and fun, and a good movement workout. It plays spontaneously with forces, shapes, images, and ideas rather than specific dance technique. At times we will have guest teachers. All are welcome. Lead by Becky Burrill—dancer-choreographer, developmental-creative arts educator, writer, visual artist.
