Play | A Soviet Film on Negro Life in America as Told by Langston Hughes and Others: A Clash of Propaganda and Authenticity


In Alle Mims's play set in 1932, a 31-year-old Langston Hughes traveled with a group of Harlem Renaissance artists from New York to Moscow in order to make a communist propaganda film. Follow Langston Hughes on the trip he thought would change the world as he struggles to smooth tension between his group of Black intellectuals and their ignorant but determined allies, the Soviets. As other character’s narratives take over, Hughes finds himself under the scrutiny of both his race and his Party in a clash of propaganda and authenticity in a new age of popular culture.

Dance Performance | Dance on Film: One & One Other -- bizarre play between reality and absurdist fantasy (online thru Apr 24)


In a bizarre play between reality and absurdist fantasy, One & One Other is a dance film offering a window into the secret world that exists on the fringes of our late-night consciousness. At the heart of the film is the mind's ability to transport us away from the mundane, habitual rhythm of life into the incongruous realm of our imagination; a place that oscillates between the fantastic and the harrowing. One & One Other is Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern and Emilie Leriche's fifth collaboration together, driven by a shared ambition to push the boundaries of film and dance and uncover how the two media might meet, intersect, and disrupt each other.

Video | Full Disclosure: Selected Video-Performances 1972-75 (online thru Apr 30)


An online streaming program of a selection of Anthony Ramos’s video-performances circa 1972-1975, a fertile period for the artist then based in Los Angeles. Ramos’s interest in time and duration stems in part from his long friendship with Allan Kaprow, with whom he studied and worked under as a teaching assistant, and who housed him following his imprisonment for conscientious objection. Ramos met Kaprow while a student at the Southern Illinois University and participated in a handful of the artist’s iconic “happenings,” including the ambitious 1967 event Fluids,, which involved the construction of several intricate igloos across Pasadena. He was later part of a coterie of West coast figures inspired by Kaprow to mount their own interventions—Ramos often staged prankish, ephemeral art events with fellow artists Joe Ray and Lowell Darling, who appear in the two plastic bag videos.
