Mais oui

We’re feeling very cosmopolitan today since our first review in French was just posted on Trip Advisor. Dredging up Mme Cunningham’s AP French from way back, we’re pretty sure its glowing.   Check it out and while you’re there add your own thoughts about MASS MoCA to Trip Advisor in whatever language you choose.  Since we’ve only got 6 reviews you’ll stand out in the crowd.  Thanks!

See more Guy Ben-Ner

2139

Guy Ben-Ner will debut a new film commissioned for Performa 09, the Third Biennal of Visual Art Performance in New York.  The new work will be screened at the Performa Hub located at 41 Cooper Square from November 1-22.

Filmed and edited in-camera over the course of twelve months, Guy will present an unusual “live film” that captures an ongoing phone conversation he has with himself, flying to and fro between Berlin and Tel Aviv, as he sorts out the lives and relationships that he maintains in the peripatetic lifestyle that has become common for the global artist.

AND on Monday November 2  at 8 PM, Guy will be “in conversation” with Performa Founder RoseLee Goldberg at an event sponsored by Artis (who was also a sponsor for our show at MASS MoCA). A reception with Programma Magazine to follow courtesy of Pera. This event is free, RSVP required.

Great interview about La Nave

TruckStop_gasstation_LeslieLyons_smaller

Our good friends Larry Murray and Caleb Hiliadis at Berkshire Fine Arts and Gay in the Berkshires did an interview with ETHEL’s Ralph Farris.  We recommend the piece as a fun read AND a great primer on how to collaborate on a film score.

ETHEL and La Nave are on their way

lanave_500

In a Mexican mood thanks to their upcoming performance, ETHEL’s viola superstar Rafael (aka  Ralph Farris) reports on the quartet’s prep for their visit to North Adams.  ETHEL will accompany La Nave de Los Monstrous (Ship of Monsters) on Friday, October 30.

¡Hola Amigos!

Dorothy, Neil and I just finished a marathon work session and I’m thrilled to report that we FINISHED editing and formatting our revised parts for Friday’s show! Woo-hoo!

Now Dorothy’s off to the printer and Neil’s cataloging our ever-growing collection of percussion instruments.

This is a highly unusual turn of events. We’re normally editing parts right up until show time, so I’m going to have to find some other drama to consume me for the next few days. Any suggestions?

We’re all coming together for the final touch-up on Thursday. That’s when Mary breaks out the drum sticks, and Neil and I get to practice our recorder intonation. Folks, it just doesn’t get any better.

OK — I’m going to take a nap now. Catch y’all on Friday!

Abrams,

Rafael

Good News on the way

P1014072

We asked our dear friend director David Eppel, a native of South Africa, to tell us about the time he spent with Abigail Nessen Bengson and Shaun McClain Bengson in his birth country this summer.   The duo are performing Ain’t That Good  News (directed by David) here on Saturday, November 7.

Abigail Nessen and her husband, Shaun Bengson and I, traveled through South Africa together, last July. They performed their show Ain’t That Good News in Cape Town and in Johannesburg. They participated in the work of a choir in Khayalitsha, and taught the students at the Market Theatre Lab in Johannesburg. For them, South Africa was a new experience, for me, a revisiting through a fresh lense. I worked with Abigail when she was a student at Williams College, and I knew then, the extent of her remarkable talent. Read the rest of this entry »
