Distorted gender roles damage both sexes. SPOILED dives beneath the unspoken truths of fathers and sons, brothers and lovers - both in America and India - in this solo play that uncovers the tangled, messy roots of violence against women by embodying the male point of view. Ripped from headlines that dominate the news in New York and New Delhi, this timely play grapples with burning issues such as military sexual assaults, college frat parties, impotent jobless boys, vulnerable child brides and infanticide. Through a lens that is compassionate yet clear-eyed, SPOILED reveals how rigid gender roles box in both sexes, with devastating consequences for all.

"For those of you just tuning in, Thanksgiving is already in progress here at Wembly kitchen.  The stands are nice and full, it's quite a crowd that's gathered.  They're in for a real treat."

A New York Times Critic's Pick! "Spectacularly inventive! Ms. Benson, the playwright, is fearless and remarkably assured in this dizzyingly entertaining work, which the program describes as her first full production. And the direction of Ms. Evans unfurls it on the Dixon Place stage with wit and verve, conjuring the story - the preparation and serving of a gigantic family dinner - without so much as a salad plate in sight."

Can the love of two women survive the black-white divide? In 1939 London, male impersonator Miss Jimmie LeRoy and pianist Claire Hicks have lived, loved, and performed together for 3 years. The gathering storm of war and a letter from home plummet them into the harsh reality of returning to a segregated U.S. As they pack to leave, the specters of exile and hatred make the very dream of their love seem impossible. Starring Margaret Morrison and Ava Jenkins, directed by Cheryl King.

"A well-constructed blend of courage, love, rebellion and self-preservation"

The film festival will take place all day long on Thursday, January 29 and Friday, January 30, 2015 at The Segal Theatre Center, The Graduate Center, CUNY in New York City.

The FTP (Film Theatre Performance) Festival will be an annual US event for films that deal directly with the themes of theatre and performance. The mission is to present experimental, emerging, and established theatre artists and filmmakers to audiences and industry professionals from around the world. The festival program includes feature films, short films, documentaries, advance screenings, meet-the-filmmaker Q&A sessions, and panels with leading artists in the field.

This event is co-curated by festival founder Frank Hentschker and film producer/theater artist Tanya Selvaratnam.

Lucinda Childs, Philip Glass, and Sol LeWitt - Dance (US/France 2014) 60 minutes
Dance, created in 1979, with choreography by Lucinda Childs, music by Philip Glass, with film work by Sol LeWitt, is a New York downtown minimalist iconic work. Now preserved in Paris by the masterful Sol LeWitt himself in pure form for the screen.

*Mathieu Copeland - The Exhibition of a Film/(L'Exposition d'un film) (UK, 2014) 60 minutes
Taking its construct both within the reality of a film and its medium, The Exhibition of a Film imagines through a polyphony of sound and images new possible textures offered by a cinematic environment. The works of over 40 artists like Lawrence Weiner, Nick Cave, Meredith Monk, Kenneth Goldsmith, Mieko Shiomi, among others, are interwoven.

Romeo Castellucci - Brentano (Italy, 1995) 27 minutes
Visionary theater director Romeo Castellucci's rare venture into film, inspired by short stories of Swiss novelist Robert Walser (1878-1956) who reflected on the German Romantic poet and writer Clemens Brentano (1778-1842), an enthusiastic fan and correspondent of Goethe.

Jan Fabre
1. Do We Feel with Our Brain and Think with Our Heart? (Belgium, 2013) 15 minutes
A visual dialogue between Flemish theater artist Jan Fabre and Italian neurobiologist Giacomo Rizzolatti, who discovered the mirror neurons, the basis for the capacity of empathy. Over the course of three years, Fabre creates startling associations to Rizzolatti's experiments.
2. The Problem (Belgium, 2001) 30 minutes
In this work Jan Fabre compares himself to his fetish animal, the dung beetle and considers that his goal as an artist is similar to the role of insects in life evolution- a performance with the German star philosophers Peter Sloterdijk and Dietmar Kamper.

Pavol Liska & Kelly Copper / Nature Theater of Oklahoma
1. Silent Movie Screen Test No. 1, 2, 6 (Zurich, Oslo, Ghent, US 2011) 3 minutes each
Liska and Copper started video experiments using text from their latest work Life and Times as research for future work. Each film, shot in the theaters or dressing rooms they we were performing on tour, is composed of hundreds of black and white still images, like a digital flip-book.

These short-films are out-takes from the feature length movie NTO is producing for Episode 7 of the durational performance project Life and Times, to be released in 2015.

Jim Fletcher and Richard Maxwell himself star in this short film as two man who are lost in life, in the snow, inside a forest and a wooden hut. In typical Maxwellian style of unattached delivery of surprising lines in a hyper-realistic setting we witness a Dinner with Richard.

The 2013 Obie Award-winning Brooklyn-based ensemble of performers and designers creates plays and performances, as well as videos. For the FTP Festival they share a preview of an up-coming web series they are developing loosely based on Half Straddle's company and work.

Thierry de Mey - William Forsythe: One Flat Thing, Reproduced (Belgium/Germany, 2006)
1. The Film: A play for 14 dancers and 20 tables was choreographed by Forsythe to the music of Thom Willems. Dance film specialist and composer Thierry de Mey documented this unique work with a great theatrical intensity that oscillates between disorder and symmetry. 30 minutes
2. The Software: Forsythe's visualization project Synchronous Objects takes the choreography of One Flat Thing, reproduces and processes the data, resulting in a number of different ways in which the viewer can experience the dance at a computer through various software tools.

Back to Back Theatre - The Democratic Set (Australia, 2008 & 2014) 4 and 11 minutes
Disturbingly simple and tantalizingly strange The Democratic Set-a globally adapted performance-is a rapid series of short video performance portraits; an assembly that demonstrates how performance as an experience can, like democracy, allow people to be seen, to speak, and to be heard.

Ken Kobland/Elizabeth LeCompte/The Wooster Group - Rumstick Road (US, 2013) 75 minutes
The haunting video reconstruction of The Wooster Group's legendary 1977 production Rumstick Road, a collaboration between Spalding Gray and Elizabeth LeCompte.

2. 100 People (UK, 2007) 15 minutes
100 People conjures the imaginary presence of one hundred people, each of whom exists only by virtue of brief descriptions on screens.
Paul Poet - FOREIGNERS OUT! Schlingensief's Container (Austria, 2002) 90 minutes
Set in Austria, 2000: Right after the ultra-right-wing political party FPÖ had become part of the government, infamous German shock director Christoph Schlingensief staged a Big-Brother-Container-Show, where Austrians could vote for the asylum seeker they hated most.

Hu Xiangqian - Sun (China, 2008) 10 minutes

Big Art Group - The Imitation (US, 2014) 30 minutes

The magnetic performances in this masterful adaptation are delivered by Julie Hagerty, as well as by Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory, the long-term collaborators who brought us My Dinner with Andre and Vanya on 42nd Street.

On Her Shoulders!

Wollman Hall, The New School

Chicago, The Play aka Play Ball
Director: Melody Brooks
Dramaturg: Mari Lyn Henry

Assisant Director: Katie McHugh
Last reading of the year! Go out with a bang!
Roxie Hart's original story was first a play dramatized by Maurine Dallas Watkins. It opened on Broadway at the Music Box on December 30, 1926. It would be almost half a century before Bob Fosse and Kander and Ebb would obtain the rights for the musical version starring Gwen Verdon.
Ms. Watkins was a crime reporter for the Chicago Tribune, and her sensational columns documenting the real trials of two women who later became the models for Roxie and Velma were so popular that she decided to write a play.
Brooks Atkinson reviewed it on December 31, 1926:
"Chicago is not a melodrama but a satirical comedy on the administration of justice through the fetid channels of newspaper publicity– of photographers, sob-sisters, feature stunts, standardized prevarication and general vulgarity. In the composition of her raucous lampoon, Miss Watkins has forgotten none of the "old hokum" or the blatant chicanery typical– it is alleged– of the trials of 'beautiful murderesses.'"

CULTURAL MOBILITY:
Symposium + International Funding Guide for The Performing Arts

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 | 9:30am - 5:30pm

At The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Proshansky Auditorium

On January 7th, 2015, the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, On the Move, & Theatre Without Borders will host a Cultural Mobility Symposium & Conference to announce the official launch of the first-ever Cultural Mobility Funding Guide for the USA: Theatre, Performing Arts and Dance.

The launch will initiate a day-long symposium featuring morning presentations from cultural mobility experts, funders, cultural exchange organizations, and practitioners. Professionals representing institutions from around the world will join afternoon working sessions to address a diverse selection of topics including artists & human rights, socially engaged performance, general funding practices, international collaboration, and practical challenges. The day will offer rare networking opportunities for international practitioners and service organizations.

This event grows out of an extraordinary inter-continental collaboration between the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center (thesegalcenter.org), the European cultural mobility information network On the Move (on-the-move.org) and the U.S.-based grass-roots international network Theatre Without Borders (theatrewithoutborders.com).

The new Cultural Mobility Funding Guide for the USA: Theatre, Performing Arts and Dance will provide a free and user-friendly online guide to funding for international exchange for artists traveling to and from the USA. This guide builds upon On the Move's existing co-produced guides for artists and cultural professionals in Europe, Asia, and Arab countries (on-the-move.org/funding). The main objective of theses guides is to make available, in a transparent way, the existing information on funding for the international mobility of artists and cultural operators and to give input to funders and policy makers on how to fill in the existing gaps in funding for international cultural exchange.

The launch, symposium and conference will be free and open to the public.

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.

An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, THE IMITATION GAME follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.
