  • George Clinton Book Interview

    10/25/14
    2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    First Parish Church
    One Church Street
    Cambridge, MA 02138
    United States of America
    $5

    Emerson assistant professor of journalism Tim Riley interviews George Clinton about his new memoir. in a public forum at Harvard Square's First Parish Church, sponsored by Porter Square Books. $5 tickets are required.

    Affectionately known as the "Goduncle" of funk, just a rung beneath James Brown's godfather, George Clinton's career as a black rock innovator spans the past fifty years with three number 1 singles and three platinum albums.

    Clinton's work mirrors the story of black pop from doo-wop through Motown pop and soul to dance music, and gained iconoclastic stature through extended guitar solos, cartoonish concept albums, and exuberant stage shows with outlandish costumes. Most of his work revolves around two distinct groups, Parliament and Funkadelic, who appeared as the P-Funk All-Stars after 1981. Well-known albums include Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow, and The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein.

    Key role models for Clinton include Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix, but he presided over his many casts of musicians as a mentor and svengali, spawning solo careers for bassist Bootsy Collins and keyboardist Bernie Worrell. His work can be palpably felt in the music of Prince, and rappers have sampled his recordings almost as much as James Brown's. He was inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

    His new memoir, Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain't That Funkin' Kinda Hard on You? recounts his zig-zag career with New Yorker writer Ben Greenman.

    The Mahabharata with Jean-Claude Carrière
    One of the greatest epics ever written
    performed by 2014 Honorary Academy Award Winner

    Jean-Claude Carrière, one of the greatest storytellers of our time, delivers one of grandest epics ever written: The Mahabharata. Accompanied by a musician and a dancer, Carrière adopts the role of a traveling bard to tell the story to a new generation of listeners, reprising the style in which it would have been performed in ancient India as an oral epic. Set in an ancient, mythic time, the narrative centers on the war for power between two families: the Pandava, five children of the gods, and the Kaurava, the hundred sons of a king whose legitimacy is in question. This pared-down, magical 90-minute retelling of the classic tale is based on Carrière's prior collaboration on The Mahabharata with iconic director Peter Brook which resulted in an acclaimed 9-hour theatrical event as well as a 5-hour film version. Bringing decades of knowledge from working with the text and tracing its roots in India, Carrière provides a deeply personal and unique interpretation of the largest epic ever told.

  • Bright Lights: Only Lovers Left Alive

    10/30/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.

    Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit, despairs about human civilization's decline, and worries about future survival. Eve, who is perhaps 3000 years old to Adam's 500, takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side.

    As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish. Eve's close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare's plays—Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price.

    Adam and Eve's precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn't yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam.

    Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.
