On this week’s episode, Brian is late and tipsy, Jon nominates Greg Abbot for all the filibusters, Nan wants you to stop using “female” as a noun, and special guest Ryan Obermeyer is not afraid of a little Ebola. We also have a Danielle update and talk about the Project Runway contest!
CentralTrak invites you to witness a series of performances curated by resident Danielle Georgiou. To Die for Performances is a collaboration between performance artists and visual artists.
Harakiri is a ceremonial disembowelment specifically performed in front of spectators. This public self-execution creates a ritual of performance in the act of death. An idea that is at the basis of all performance – every moment you step on the stage could be your last; if you do not leave your soul out there for all to witness, if you do not die with every performance, have you lived honorably?
Commencing April 21st, performances will take place each Saturday night until May 19.
Dallas Video FestÂ will beÂ Sept. 21-25, 2011Â at theÂ Angelika Film CenterÂ andÂ TheÂ Texas TheatreÂ in the city of Dallas. DVF is one of the oldest video-based festivals in the country and has a legacy that is both memorable and innovative. DVF has shown countless films in the past including the Emmy-award winning documentary â€œFreedom Riders.â€ It has showcased work from filmmakers such as Jim Sheridan and Michael Moore and had many notable guests including Monty Pythonâ€™s Terry Gilliam, as well as television icon and actor Paul Reubens.
This yearâ€™s festival will be an event to remember with a wonderful selection of films, as well as, panel discussions, workshops and seminars. Our opening night presentation will be â€œFilm Socialisme,â€ the new feature from legendary director and French New wave pioneerÂ Jean-Luc Godard. We also will be showing the mixed martial arts documentary â€œOnce I Was A Champion,â€ about the life and struggles of former UFC Champion Evan Tanner. This feature should be a delight for both fans of mixed martial arts and anyone who loves a great documentary. Another featured screening will be a documentary titled â€œConnected,â€ created by the founders of theÂ Webby Awards. Two works from directorÂ Spike Jonze, a short titled â€œMourir AuprÃ¨sÂ de Toiâ€ and a vintage skating video of his creation, also will be featured at the festival this year.Â
If you couldn’t make it to the Kessler Theater a few weeks back, head out to the AngelikaÂ Friday for a 10p.m. screening of Don’t Tell My Wife I’m A Cult Leader.Â Plus, this Sunday, our very own Danielle’s experimental short, La Route, will screen at noon. Hope to see you all there!
