The Nightingale Cinema is hosting Bits & Pieces for all of this year. We invite you to kick off 2019 with us on Saturday, January 12! Doors at 7:30, performances start at 8:00!
What’s the deal? Bits and Pieces is an event for ideas caught in between the stages of development and performance. The point of Bits and Pieces is to commit an idea to performance before you forget about it, talk yourself out of it, or throw it away.
We invite anyone to participate as a performer (or as an audience member). Pieces should be time-based and under 15 minutes. For those interested in presenting, just let Katy or Sophia know when you arrive and you will get on the list. If you have technical requirements that are outside of projector, sound, etc., message us!
There will be no formal feedback/discussion after the performances. Please consider your audience and be intentional about your performances. The evening is not curated or moderated beforehand, so assume responsibility for the content of your piece.
There will be snacks and beverage–they will run out eventually, so feel free to bring your own. Also, bring friends!
Upcoming 2019 Dates: March 9, 2019 May 25, 2019 September 7, 2019 November 2, 2019
The Nightingale is excited to welcome multidisciplinary artist Sara Condo to present a selection of her video and performance work. Condo grapples with technology, landscape and feminism, finding unexpected meanings along the highways and byways of the United States. Trust the journey.
The program includes:
Everywhere is Anywhere, a scrolling landscape photograph and science fiction piece mourning the death of the “American Dream.” The video follows the zen warrior path of the main character, D a queer cyberpunk goddess, who wanders across the land following the death of her estranged father, whom we will call The Wizard. D is on a spiritual journey on a search to unravel the layers of patriarchal power systems embedded in the fabric of her life. Struggling to come to grips with the loss of her ego, she completes walking meditation upon the built environment. Using the landscape as her friendly companion, D reflects on the history of each location and her place within.
The Wizard, a live performance piece incorporating computer generated audio and video visuals
Wanderlust, a short experimental documentary centered around a woman who travels alone. As she travels, she contemplates notions of female hysteria, agriculture, and the dawning of the New Age.
