  • Nanook of the North/The Wedding of Palo Double Feature

    4/20/13
    1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Nanook of the North / The Wedding of Palo. Fascination with the lives of Eskimos resulted in these early documentary films. Nanook of the North serves as a silent-film predecessor to the documentary, and follows the life of Inuit Nanook and his family for one year in the Arctic Circle. The emotionally charged docudrama, The Wedding of Palo, reveals the romantic love triangle between one woman and two men who maintain a bitter rivalry for her affections, but also showcases the Arctic tundra and Inuit traditions.

    Special introduction to The Wedding of Palo by Lawrence Millman!

    2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    Cutler Majestic Theatre
    $20 Public, $15 Students & Seniors, $10 Emerson

     Shakespeare's first romantic comedy gets a treatment of music from the '70s in this story of love and betrayal involving best friends who fall in love with the same woman. The friends remain loyal only to their own desires, forsaking their friendship and those they love, as they let their passions guide them forward.

    4/20/13
    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.

    Directed by Kenneth Anger
    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

    4/20/13
    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.
