Hello folks, The last night of the domesticity micro-festival here at The Picture Show ends with a film by Laura Bouza and a live narration-performance by photographer Dick Blau and writer Jane Gallop. Please join us!
7:30pm / 226 Green Street, Brooklyn NY ThePictureShow.org Eight Women Laura Bouza / 2009 / USA / 29 min www.laurabouza.com Eight dancers, now in their eighties, continue to dance. Beginning as suburban housewives in 1950's Connecticut, each were swayed to join a community dance ensemble later to be led by Charles Weidman and other prominent modern dancers of the time. Some were professional level dancers, others were just curious. Regardless of ability, regardless of intent, this evolving group of women created an engaging ensemble that extended past the stage, into their lives. A rendering of the intersections of motherhood, marriage, and movement, the film reflects on the delicate balance of their lives as homemakers and dancers. "Thicker Than Water: My Family in Photographs (1968-2014)” Dick Blau and Jane Gallop / Live performance approx. 45 min Dick Blau has been making photographs of the people he lives with for almost fifty years; cultural theorist Jane Gallop has been living with him – and his camera – for thirty five years. In the course of their collaboration in art and life, they have produced two children, a number of shows, and a book, Living With his Camera (Duke University Press, 2003.) Their work attempts to portray the realities of family life beyond the pieties of conventional representations. In their live-performance at The Picture Show, Blau and Gallop will page through a series of photographs and narrate the latest iteration of this project, reflecting on the events portrayed and the issues explored in the course of this long-term study of domestic relations.
