12.10.13Paris Belongs to Us

Paris Belongs to Us US is a multimedia art-installation/performance event based on Jacques Rivette’s 1961 film. A murder mystery unfolding in contemporary Paris; A young girl/detective looking for the truth; A group of actors rehearsing Shakespeare’s Pericles; A political refugee; A femme fatale and a theatre director; A lost recording; A love story; An unfinished play; Frightening secrets; Comedy; Revolution; And much more. Reality is shattered, broken into pieces. Solidity is eroded. We are in what German philosopher Ernst Bloch calls the great space of the still open. In this intensely present time, things and beings circulate and it all goes both inwards and outwards. The world created is not closed, not fixed. Reality disintegrates. Past and present co-exist. Ghosts are seen and heard. Reality shifts into another reality, which is re-created and revealed. Un-veiled.

02.14.13L'Amour Fou

L’AMOUR FOU is a multimedia art-installation/performance event based on Jacques Rivette’s 1969 film L’Amour Fou.
 Images, memory, time and dream. Actors are rehearsing a 17th century play. A marriage is ending… The parallel between art and life creates an intrinsically complex narrative where elements of theatre and film interact as reality slowly decomposes and reveals that fiction might just be what is true, after all.

06.22.11It's Too Late

It’s Too Late is a multimedia site-specific art installation dedicated to Jean Eustache’s 1973 film The Mother and The Whore.
Raw and unsentimental, the quest for love reveals the collapse of human ideals as characters face irresolution and a sense of profound desolation. Alexander, Marie and Veronika are caught in meaningless rituals that long for true intimacy. The need for human connection permeates the world and hyperreality shows what is at play: in the underlying emptiness, the struggle to come to terms with profound change, cultural alienation and devastating pain.

June 22-July 1, 8:00 p.m.

07.21.10From Dawn till Night (The Earth is uninhabitable like the Moon) at the undergoundzero festival, PS122, July 2010

From Dawn till Night (The Earth is uninhabitable like the Moon) is a multimedia investigation of Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 1978 film In A Year with 13 Moons.
In this apocalyptical tale of identity, love and death, a man/woman reevaluates his/her place in the world as the past closes in and the quest for humanity becomes increasingly difficult. Following her adaptations of Beware of a Holy Whore and The Third Generation (3! at last year’s undergroundzero), Dangerous Ground’s director Doris Mirescu concludes her Fassbinder trilogy with an ode to emotional disarray and cosmological swirls.
