The $ellout Festival

Filed under: Listings,Press Releases — offoffbway @ 8:12 pm

As many of you have no doubt heard, we here at The Brick are tired of art. We have decided that toiling in obscurity (in Brooklyn, no less) is no longer worth the effort. And so we’ve hit upon the perfect solution: boobs. Any number of them. Money and violence. Drug binges. Name-dropping. Whatever it takes to prove we’re serious about our lack of substance and to get what we really want: money and fame.

There’s no way to put this delicately: we’re selling out.

May 31st-June 17th
Wednesday thru Saturday @ 8pm
The Gene Frankel Theatre
24 Bond St. @ Lafayette

In his world premier translation and modern adaptation of Miss Julie, Artistic Director of The New Moon Repertory Theatre, Per Brahe sets his adaptation in the 1950’s American South. It takes place just before the arrival of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a story about a black man and a white woman caught in deep lust for one another despite racial and social dangers and limitations. It is a story about two people in conflict with their race and class. Strindberg’s play was written following the industrial age, just prior to the emancipation of women and the rise of the working class. These issues present a compelling dynamic when set in the racist climate of the American South where the status roles between white women and black men were rigidly set within the American racial context.

Tejal Shah-“What are You?”

Filed under: Galleries,Listings,Press Releases — offoffbway @ 5:29 pm

Not theater per se, but it seems like it might be of interest.

May 25 – June 29, 2006

Opening: Thursday, May 25, 6 – 8:30

An event of the Asian Contemporary Art Week,
ACAW Video Artist: So, Man Yee Stella

One of the most significant Indian artists of her generation, Tejal Shah (b. 1979) works in video, photography, and performance. For her first U.S. solo exhibition, she presents a new video installation in which the pliable language of gender is explored in a physical, concrete manner not only by her chosen subjects but also through the medium itself. Moving casually between staged performances, documentary, music video and appropriation, Shah’s “What are You?” creates a direct relationship to her subjects’ manipulations of their own gender.
