REIGEN ad lib



U.S. Premiere
REIGEN ad lib Performed by Dood Paard
Thurs and Fri, Apr 28 and 29, 8 pm
Sat, Apr 30, 3 and 8 pm

The Amsterdam-based avant-garde theater collective Dood Paard, working with no director or set designer, presents a provocative staging of Arthur Schnitzler's seminal text Reigen (Full Circle, 1897). Banned for more than 20 years, except for one unauthorized performance in Budapest in 1912, this scandalous play of love and lust assembles ten consummate dialogues between a motley collection of characters, all with the same goal: sex.

Celebrate Revolution @ the Harlem Stage



On the evening of Monday April 11th at Harlem Stage (NYC) there will be an extraordinary celebration of revolution and the vision of a whole new world.

As part of this event, Dread Scott and Kyle Goen have curated a bad ass exhibition that will be on view the night of the celebration. It will include artwork by: Derrick Adams, Wafaa Bilal, Richard Duardo, Emory Douglas, Skylar Fein, Kyle Goen, Guerrilla Girls BroadBand, Steve Lambert, Wangechi Mutu, Dread Scott, SEN ONE UZN and Hank Willis Thomas.

These artist span generations, work in different media, employ different conceptual and aesthetic strategies, come from different countries and show everywhere from major museums to street corners. The exhibit includes photography, screen prints, video and painting. Some of the works starkly confront a world scarred by war and oppression. Other works encourage viewers to imagine how it could be radically different.

The evening as a whole will be an evening of great inspiration. Some of the nights performers include Ruby Dee, David Murray, Abiodun Oyewole, reg e. gaines, Outernational and Rebel Diaz.

Chloe Sevigny for OC

 
Chloe Sevigny, in partnership with the robert mapplethorpe foundation, and in support of the fight against hiv/aids, has hand selected images of his work for a limited edition t-shirt line. I think they are really great but not worth $185 if you ask me... go to Opening Ceremory for more info.

Black White and Gray


Sam Wagstaff and Robert Mapplethorpe's life fascinates me. Great documentary.
