In The Wings Staged Reading: The River

In The Wings Staged Reading: The River Start Date: Monday 11/11/2019 — End Date: Monday 11/11/2019 Admission:$10 Town Hall Theatre’s first IN THE WINGS staged reading of the 2019-20 Season is a one-night only performance of THE RIVER, a lyrical and mysterious new play about a man and a woman (or women, possibly), and fishing, by Tony Award winner Jez Butterworth. THE RIVER will have one performance on Monday, November 11, 2019, at Town Hall Theatre Company, 3535 School Street, in Lafayette, CA. Tickets are $10 general admission and free to subscribers, and are available through the Box Office at (925) 283-1557 or online at www.TownHallTheatre.com. “ … a magnetically eerie, luminously beautiful psychodrama.” – Time Out (London) In his subtly crafted play, THE RIVER, playwright Jez Butterworth sets the story in a remote cabin on the cliffs beside a river. The Man has invited The Woman there, and he longs to share with her the ecstatic excitement of fishing for trout that night, a once-a-year moonless night. Darkness, the sound of the rushing river and lights come up on the Man calling the police about a woman who has gone missing while fishing. He is interrupted by a door banging and The Other Woman enters, seemingly having exchanged places. Are we witnessing some kind of ritual enfold? Are we watching a ghost story, a thriller or an elegy? “A wonderful play, glinting and elusive as a fish.” – Financial Times THE RIVER is directed by Matthew Travisano and features three Bay Area talents: Erin Gould as The Man, Sarah Ruby as The Woman and Cynthia Lagodzinski as The Other Woman. Performance History Town Hall’s reading is the first time THE RIVER has been heard in the Bay Area. First produced by the Royal Court, London, in 2012, THE RIVER received its North American premiere at the Circle in the Square Theatre in New York in 2014 starring Hugh Jackman, Cush Jumbo and Laura Donnelly. ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT Jez Butterworth is a playwright and screenwriter, actor and film director.

Ariane Vielmetter: The Rose Garden

Ariane Vielmetter: The Rose Garden Start Date: Saturday 11/9/2019 — End Date: Saturday 12/7/2019 Admission:Free Ever Gold [Projects] presents The Rose Garden, a solo exhibition by Ariane Vielmetter. In new paintings, drawings, and sculptures, Vielmetter explores representations of the female body in relation to fruits and flowers, and the ways these visual metaphors relate to lived experience. The female body, as a vessel for new life, is a natural structure for this kind of projection, and Vielmetter is particularly interested in the way this kind of imagery relates to the experiences of pregnant women. In a culture overloaded with information about best health practices, and a political climate that is very unpredictable with regards to women’s rights, the pregnant body has become an increasingly political site. The visual conflation of the botanical and the anatomical has both a long history and a strong contemporary presence. In an artist book Vielmetter will release in conjunction with her exhibition, she notes an example of this: an iPhone app that informs pregnant women of the approximate size of their developing babies in relation to fruits and vegetables. A baby, according to the app, might grow from the size of a mango at week 19, to a banana at week 20, to a cantaloupe at week 26. In her exhibition, as in her book, the artist weaves the personal, historical, and political together in a manner that is both organic and associative. She moves seamlessly from images and anecdotes from her garden, to paintings by Paula Modersohn Becker and writings by Joan Didion, and back again. At the heart of it all, however, is a contemplation about the potential for things to be at their prime the moment before they begin to fall apart.¬ Whether it is considered through the meticulous rendering of a persimmon, a fruit that is practically inedible until it is on the cusp of rotting, or in the context of having a child in the face of irreversible climate change, this potential is The Rose Garden’s central meditation. Ariane Vielmetter (b. 1987, Tübingen, Germany) lives and works in Los Angeles. Vielmetter’s work uses the conventions of still life and trompe l’oeil painting as a way to explore the image-making process and realism’s ability to convey both plausible fictions and uncanny truths. She draws from a variety of source materials, ranging from re-purposed studio scraps and unfinished drawings, to specimens collected from her compost pile and garden, anthropological illustrations, and works by artists and writers who have been historically overlooked or underestimated. She often creates limited edition artist books to accompany each body of work. She attended the University of California, Los Angeles (BA, 2008) and California Institute of the Arts (MFA, 2012). Her work has been featured by Fabrik Magazine, Artnet, LA Weekly, and The Art Book Review, and has been shown in recent solo exhibitions at Commonwealth and Council (Los Angeles) and Hey There Projects (Joshua Tree). Recent group exhibitions include Arrangements in Undertone at Pomona College (Claremont, 2017); The Furies at Visitor Welcome Center (Los Angeles, 2016); Modern Arts and Crafts at Eastside International (Los Angeles, 2016); and Demolition Woman at Chapman University (Orange, 2013).

Live Organ & A Movie: 20,000 Leagues Under The S

Live Organ & A Movie: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Start Date: Thursday 11/14/2019 — End Date: Thursday 11/14/2019 Admission:$6.50 Join us for our Live Organ & A Movie series. Hosted by Matias Bombal and music played by Dave Moreno. This series combines live organ music, raffles, and a classic movie all rolled into one. We begin with Dave Moreno playing the theater’s historic Robert Morton Organ with a selection of themed musical pieces. This 1954 Disney version of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea represented the studio’s costliest and most elaborate American-filmed effort to date. Kirk Douglas plays a trouble-shooting 19th century seaman, trying to discover why so many whaling ships have been disappearing of late. Teaming with scientist Paul Lukas and diver Peter Lorre, Douglas sets sail to investigate–and is promptly captured by the megalomaniac Captain Nemo (James Mason), who skippers a lavish, scientifically advanced submarine. This film won 2 Academy Awards for Best Film Direction and Best Special Effects.
