Independent Documentary Series: HEART OF A DOG

Friday, February 5th, 2016 7:00 pm
$10
BUY TICKETS HERE FOR FRI. 2/5, 7PM Just added: Sunday 2/7, 1pm matinee! BUY TICKETS HERE FOR SUN. 2/7, 1PM "Hello, little bonehead. I'll love you forever." So begins HEART OF A DOG, creative pioneer Laurie Anderson's wry, wondrous and unforgettable cinematic journey through love, death and language. Centering on Anderson's beloved rat terrier Lolabelle, who died in 2011, HEART OF A DOG is a personal essay that weaves together childhood memories, video diaries, philosophical musings on data collection, surveillance culture and the Buddhist conception of the afterlife, and heartfelt tributes to the artists, writers, musicians and thinkers who inspire her. Fusing her own witty, inquisitive narration with original violin compositions, hand-drawn animation, 8mm home movies and artwork culled from exhibitions past and present, Anderson creates a hypnotic, collage-like visual language out of the raw materials of her life and art, examining how stories are constructed and told —and how we use them to make sense of our lives. WATCH TRAILER HERE Throughout HEART OF A DOG there are quotes, images and stories from other writers and artists, including Anderson's late friend the sculptor Gordon Matta-Clark, the philosophers Ludwig Wittgenstein and Søren Kierkegaard, and author David Foster Wallace, whose evocative line "Every love story is a ghost story" was an initial working titlefor the film. Anderson's late husband Lou Reed —to whom she dedicates HEART OF A DOG —provides a coda to the film with his song "Turning Time Around," which plays over the closing credits. LAURIE ANDERSON is one of America’s most renowned and daring, creative pioneers. She is best known for her multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology. As writer, director, visual artist and vocalist she has created groundbreaking works that span the worlds of art, theater and experimental music. Her recording career, launched by “O Superman” in 1981, includes the soundtrack to her feature film HOME OF THE BRAVE and “Life on a String” (2001). Anderson's live shows range from simple spoken word to elaborate multi-media stage performances such as “Songs and Stories for Moby Dick” (1999). Anderson has published seven books and her visual work has been presented in major museums around the world. In 2002, Anderson was appointed the first artist-in-residence of NASA which culminated in her 2004 touring solo performance “The End of the Moon.” Recent projects include a series of audio-visual installations and a high-definition film, “Hidden Inside Mountains,” created for World Expo 2005 in Aichi, Japan. In 2007 she received the prestigious Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize for her outstanding contribution to the arts. In 2008 she completed a two-year worldwide tour of her performance piece, “Homeland,” which was released as an album on Nonesuch Records in June 2010. Anderson’s solo performance “Delusion” debuted at the Vancouver Cultural Olympiad in February 2010. In October 2010 a retrospective of her visual and installation work opened in Sao Paulo, Brazil and later traveled to Rio de Janiero. In 2011 her exhibition of new visual work titled “Forty-Nine Days In the Bardo” opened in Philadelphia, and “Boat,” her first exhibition of paintings, curated by Vito Schnabel in New York. She has recently completed a three-year fellowship at both EMPAC, the multi media center at RPI in Troy, NY, and PAC at UCLA. Anderson lives in New York City.

Fleet Movement Explorations

Sunday, February 7th, 2016 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.

$15 includes film & small plate
BUY TICKETS HERE The 4th season of Food On Film returns! Presented by Prez Hall & Lola's Local Food Lab, each film is accompanied by a small plate menu inspired by the film, and introduced by series producers Vanessa Downing (Prez Hall) and Kim Shkapich (Lola's Local Food Lab). This season's theme: TABLE MANNERS: Recipes for Polite Society Explore the confines of class and the balance of personal freedoms in the midst of tight family and social structures, often served before the entrée at dinner. Each film has a different recipe for power and passion as the protagonists hunger for transformation and acceptance. Small plate menu: Firepot Vegetable Soup, Rice paper Spring Rolls, and Almond Dofu (gelatin) (Vegetarian) Screening Thurs. 2/18: RAISE THE RED LANTERN (Orion Classics, 1991) Directed by Yimou Zhang In Mandarin with English subtitles. A rich and disturbing story set in China in the 1920s that follows the four wives of a wealthy merchant, each of whom tries to claim personal agency, sexual attention, and love despite their deeply misogynist and oppressive culture. As Ellen J. Fried points out in her essay in Reel Food (Routledge, 2004), it's the customs and rituals related to food that prove the women's greatest source of social control and manipulation within their domestic situation, from the quality of the meals they prepare to the dining rules they set. Such power, however, comes at a price...

Outermost Contra Dance

Come dance! The Outermost Contra dance happens on the third Friday of each month, and in different locations on the Outer Cape. There is a community potluck beforehand at 6:30, with the dance starting at 7:30. Guest musicians TBA. What is contradance? Contra dancing is the old time dance of New England, danced to the exuberant reels and jigs from the traditional repertoires of the British Isles, Canada and America. Contra dancing is social interaction set to music, meeting people, and making new friends. A caller, working with a group of live musicians, guides new and experienced dancers alike through a variety of dances. No need to bring a partner, but bring friends and family! All dances are taught, and if you can walk you can dance! Or you can just come to listen. People of all ages and lifestyles, including children, are welcome. Contra dances are a place where people from many walks of life come together to dance and socialize. Our dance is supported by a small grant from the Country Dance and Song Society and by donations. The suggested donation is $10 or whatever you can afford to put towards supporting the dances.
