Chaplin Films

Chaplin Films
Description:

In 1914, Charles Chaplin appeared for the first time in a costume which, over a hundred years later, is instantly recognisable. During his long life and career, Chaplin famously enjoyed the prestige and wealth that came with his filmic accomplishments (notably, co-founding the United Artists studio along with fellow Hollywood luminaries Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and D. W. Griffith.

Hailed as the cinema's first genius, Chaplin set the standard for silent screen comedy as a performer, writer and director. Starting with his features, he began composing his own music scores.  

This is a rare chance to see three early short comedies made during the period Chaplin called “the happiest period of my career.” Bradleigh Stockwell - local filmmaker and silent film enthusiast - will be introducing these films to Newport. Join us to see why, 100 years later, Chaplin is still considered one of the most important (and funniest) people to ever appear on film and hear great music composed for silent these films.

On the program:
The Fireman (1916), The Vagabond (1916), Easy Street (1917)

Ticket: $5 adult. $2/50 under 16

Time: 2/1/15

Or, produced by Vermont Stage Company

Or, produced by Vermont Stage Company Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

Written by Liz Duffy Adams
Directed by Sarah Carleton

Against a background of a long drawn-out war and a counter-culture of free love, cross-dressing, and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s look a lot like the 1960s in this fast-paced, neo-Restoration comedy about real-life poet, spy, and first professional female playwright , Aphra Behn. Before she can complete her latest masterpiece, our daring heroine must solve a pushy producer problem, untangle a saucy love triangle, and stop an attempted assassination of the King. OR, by Liz Duffy Adams is a delightfully dizzying romp about sex, love, and gender roles that is worthy of one of Behn’s very own farces.

Copperplate Calligraphy with Laura DiPiazza at River Arts

Copperplate Calligraphy with Laura DiPiazza at River Arts
Description:

Copperplate Calligraphy with Laura DiPiazza – 2 Sundays, February 1st and 15th, 10am-4pm. Tuition $155 (materials not included). Register by calling 802-888-1261 or online at www.RiverArtsVT.org

In this beginner calligraphy workshop we will examine and practice letterforms in the Copperplate hand. Copperplate, a pointed-pen script hand, was developed in 16th century England. We will work with an oblique pen holder, pointed pen nib and sumi ink on layout paper. Our main focus will be on practicing varying amounts of pressure to apply to our pens to produce thick (shaded) and thin (hairline) strokes and also developing strong letterforms. We will begin our practice with minuscule and later majuscule letters, which will be grouped according to similar shapes. Feel free to bring in your favorite quote and/or project ideas for practice and discussion. Laura Di Piazza will bring supplies to experiment with lettering in color during the last hour of class.
