  • A Conversation with Kenneth Anger

    4/19/13
    4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    Max Mutchnick Campus Center
    Multipurpose Room

    During the 1950s and '60s filmmaker Kenneth Anger, one of the key figures in the development of American avant-garde cinema, was noted for his provocative, often violent films filled with Freudian and occult symbols, mystical rituals, sexual exhibitions, and personal visions. To Anger, filmmaking is equivocated with 'casting a spell' to invoke a higher spiritual and intellectual order. He was born in Santa Monica, California and grew up surrounded by Hollywood figures after he became a child actor in films such as A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935) and Who Has Been Rocking My Dream Boat? (1941). Anger made his first important film, Fireworks, in 1947, completing it in two weekends. It was a highly personalized psychodrama featuring himself playing a guilt-filled gay man dreaming of being beaten by a group of sailors which leads him to sexual freedom. In 1949, the highly acclaimed film was shown to the public at Jean Cocteau's "Festival of the Damned" in Biarritz. Much of Anger's work was completed in France and other European countries. Many of his works, such as The Story of O, remain uncompleted. In addition to filmmaking, Anger also has written an expose of Hollywood behind-the-scenes, Hollywood Babylon.

    This event is not open to the public.

  • Kenneth Anger: The Magick Lantern Cycle

    4/19/13
    6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

     Kenneth Anger: The Magick Lantern Cycle
    One of the most influential filmmakers of the 20th Century, Anger's work has inspired Gus Van Sant, Guy Maddin, David Lynch and Martin Scorsese, who has called him "without a doubt, one of our greatest artists." His cinematic arabesques are intended as alchemical rituals, designed to evoke profound change in the viewer through the uses of montage, music and archetypal symbol. Two programs showcase Anger's classic films along with new work not available on DVD.
    Special support provided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
    Dr. Anger will appear between screenings to discuss his work.
    Friday, April 19, 6 p.m.
    Saturday, April 20, 9 p.m.

    1954/1969/1972, DVD, Color, 79 minutes
    The Magickal films, inspired by the teachings of Aleister Crowley, including the fabulously decadent Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, the psychedelic Invocation of My Demon Brother (soundtrack by Mick Jagger), and the sublimely transcendent Lucifer Rising.
    Friday, April 19, 9 p.m.
    Saturday, April 20, 6 p.m.

    Scorpio
    Directed by Kenneth Anger
    1947/1953/1964, DVD, Black & White/Color, 60 minutes
    The homoerotic films, including Anger's pioneering Fireworks, which Jean Cocteau praised as "coming from that beautiful night from which emerge all true works", the hermaphroditic dreamscape of Eaux d'Artifice, and Scorpio Rising, a rapturous celebration of "Thanatos in chrome and black leather and bursting jeans."

  • Trojan Women

    4/19/13
    8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Paramount Center Mainstage
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

     ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Trojan Women. In the ruins of their burning city, the royal women of Troy—still mourning the slaughter of their husbands and sons—await enslavement and exile. Among the greatest of all antiwar dramas, Trojan Women (After Euripides) meditates on the moments of individual choice that separate death and life, despair and hope, future and past. In a contemporary adaptation by Jocelyn Clarke, characters such as Odysseus who were formerly seen but not heard appear, and live original music underscores the timeless tale. Acclaimed director Anne Bogart and her SITI Company return to ArtsEmerson after last spring's Café Variations with this vital production of Euripides' classic.
