The New Talkies

Sunday, March 6, 2011, 7:30 pm, $10 general, $5 student/senior/members

There is a traditional form of film presentation from the silent era which involves a speaking performer accompanying a projected film. One contemporary re-visioning of the form replays short scenes from modern films (with the sound muted) overdubbed live with new narration. Tonight’s program blends intervention, critique, satire and homage, featuring an ensemble piece with Tisa Bryant, Jen Hofer, Jennifer Nellis, Ron Palmer, and Konrad Steiner each re-telling a different scene from one of the most revised films in history: “Blade Runner.” Special guests Cecil Giscombe and Erin Morrill will also be performing premieres of original pieces.

Curated and produced by Konrad Steiner and Jen Hofer.
