4. Penny Arcade, FF Alumn, at Millennium Film Workshop, Nov. 14, 8 pm

The Lower East Side Biography Project and the Millennium Film Workshop present Video Screening and Talk Show
Friday Nov 14th
Millennium Film Workshop
66 East 4th Street
8 pm
Admission $ 7.00/$5.00 Members
Information 212-673-0090

Two video biographies from the LOWER EAST SIDE BIOGRAPHY PROJECT will be screened this evening. The LES BIO PROJECT is part of a weekly biography series seen on Manhattan s public access cable channel, Manhattan Neighborhood Network, MNN. The biographies in this program include two of the most renowned and enduring personalities of the Lower East Side art world, TAYLOR MEAD and JONES MEKAS.

After the screenings, there will be a live LES Bio interview with Jonas Mekas conducted by Penny Arcade. In celebration of the late Jack Smith s birthday on this date, we hope to play some unique audio and video clips.

Taylor Mead Biography 28 min
Disinherited from his wealthy and powerful Michigan banking family before moving to New York and becoming an actor, this Lower East Side icon was sought out by Andy Warhol and became part of the inner circle at the Factory and a regular cast member in Warhol's films. Unabashedly frank and forever engaging with his "who cares if they sue me?" attitude, Taylor Mead has seen and done it all and isn't afraid to talk about it and name names.Directed by Steve Zehentner and Sibylle Jud

Jonas Mekas Biography 28 min
Curator, writer, poet and filmmaker Jonas Mekas is the godfather of American avant-garde filmmaking, or the New American Cinema, as he dubbed it in the late 1950s. The founder of Anthology Film Archives, the Filmmakers' Cooperative and Film Culture magazine, Mekas helped shape the public image of avant-garde filmmaking in America.Directed by Aubrey Anable, Justin O. Silverman & Virginia Williams

The Lower East Side Biography Project
- stemming the tide of cultural amnesia -
The Lower East Side Biography Project, (LES Bio Project), is an oral history project, archive and community media program. It honors the spirit of its community's history and reclaims the values of individualism, authenticity & rebellion by connecting those values back to their source in the form of video biographies on the community s long-term residents. Funded by Manhattan Neighborhood Network, (MNN), the LES Bio Project runs a media training program that instructs individuals in all aspects of digital video production. It's members attend workshops and then apply their new skills by working within small production teams to shoot, edit and direct their own biography segment. The project stems the tide of cultural amnesia in the rapidly changing Lower East Side by creating a dialogue between the project's biography subjects, and newcomers to the city and the neighborhood. In addition to creating biographies, the LES Bio Project routinely documents live events.

The LES Bio Project is co-produced by Penny Arcade and Steve Zehentner, and associate produced by Dean Lance. Its members include: Geoff Bruen, Anna Wierzbicka, Patti Van Dyke, Jeffrey Galusha, Justin O. Silverman, Amy P. Ferrara, Nadia Macnider, Chris Rael, Hugh Gran, Jill Cowburn, Heiko Kalmbach, Eric Wallach, Sibylle Jud, Keith Geller, Vanessa McDonnell and Vanita Salisbury

The LES Bio Project is funded by Manhattan Neighborhood Network and is cablecast and cybercast every Wednesday at 11 p.m. on MNN's Time/Warner 34/78 RCN 109/112, and streamed live at www.mnn.org - Channel 34.

10. Jon Keith Brunelle, FF Alumn, at Galapagos, Brooklyn, Nov. 24, 7:30 pm

I've organized a 90-minute program featuring my laptop/video storytelling and performances by three exceptional musicians. The event is called The Psychasthenia Society, and it happens on Monday, November 24, 7:30 p.m. at Galapagos. Each artist will present work mediated by portable electronics.

The lineup:
Jon Keith Brunelle -- excerpts from The Hammer Variations, a digital/live remix of Kiss Me Deadly.
lloop -- renowned laptop musician, delivering gorgeous layered textures over a steady groove.
Bit Shifter -- low-bit, high-energy music composed and performed on a Nintendo Game Boy.
burun -- always something unexpected; her iBook might send us a maze-like sound collage or a brisk dance laced with Japanese animation dialogue.

I'll host the event and give three short performances, alternating with a 20-minute set by each musician. This will be a tight program, featuring some of the best work by New York artists whose instruments are laptop computers and related devices.

12. Fiona Templeton, FF Alumn, in Lille France, Dec. 12-21, 2003

L'Ile
the dream of a city

A new citywide play by Fiona Templeton
by appointment only
dawn and dusk

from December 12 to December 21, 2003
Lille, France
for the opening of Lille European Cultural Capital 2004
www.lille2004.com or International code+33-3-59-57-94-00
(Lille is one hour from Paris, 83 minutes from London, half an hour from Brussels)
Production: Compagnie H-A-U-T, Lille

L'Ile is the long-awaited sequel to Fiona Templeton's legendary 1988 play, YOU-The City, *an intimate Manhattanwide play for an audience of one* published by Roof Books, New York, and recreated in London, Ljubljana, Den Haag, Zürich, München, Rotterdam and Hamburg.

L'Ile (The Island) begins with a hundred simultaneous appointments across the city, each for a single *dreamer*. The dreamer lives the recreated dreams of the city's inhabitants, played by a network of actors and local volunteers. The web of routes and encounters leads, in growing groups, to a final convergence of all the dreams in the city's centre.

Critics on YOU-The City:

"It was no dream; I had simply entered a parallel universe that look, shook and smelled like Times Square." C Carr Village Voice 1988

"Truly the collective consciousness of the city." John Howell, Artforum.

"Seamlessly directed, worthy of MI5 or the CIA." Pamela Zeplin, High Performance.

"Extraordinary. A revolution in theatre." Brian Sewell, London Evening Standard, 1989.

"The event everyone will pretend to have seen." Adrian Dannatt, London Sunday Times.

Fiona Templeton is a director, playwright and poet. She has published several books and has received awards from the US National Endowment for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, the Abendzeitung Muenchen Star of the Year for theatre, and the 2003 award in theatre from the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts, New York.

13. Gabriele Leidloff, FF Alumn, at NYU, Nov. 21-22

Images of the Sciences and Scientists in Visual Media Geneva, Friday, November 21 and Saturday, November 22, 2003 at New York University Film and electronic media are the most important sources of pictures which shape and haunt collective memory. Among the popular images of the present are those of the sciences and scientists. The conference will bring into contact specialists from two areas of expertise: image production and theory and history and sociology of the sciences and makes an attempt to explore techniques of constructing highly ambivalent images that represent scientists as gods of the secular age or demonize them as madmen who are threatening to destroy the world. Geneva We hope you will join us in this thought-provoking event.

BRONX RIVER ART CENTER PRESENTS
RECUENTO DE MIS 15
Performance by Nicolás Dumit Estévez
DECEMBER 6, 3pm

Formatted as a traditional Latino quince años, a coming-of-age-ceremony in which girls formally celebrate their transition to womanhood, this piece consists of an exhaustive audio-visual presentation performed collaboratively by an artist, a curator, a gallery coordinator, a flower girl, a theramin player, a waiter and group of invited curators.

Recuento de mis 15 looks at professional roles and questions the established art world's methods of validating an artist's work, inviting those present to delve simultaneously into the private and the public; the institutional and the personal, into what is real and what is staged. Guests at this event get an inside look at Estévez's upbringing as well as his education, exhibitions, awards, residencies and rejection letters through a presentation that includes detailed projections of his five-page resume.

In this performance, as in some of his previous work, Estevez continues to work with the audience, inviting it to become participant and therefore to affect the development of the piece.

Semi-formal attire suggested.
