Best of VT International Film Festival - Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

Best of VT International Film Festival - Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

An artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to ʼ70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room — Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature. Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison reflects on her lifelong deconstruction of the master narrative. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works, including novels “The Bluest Eye,” “Sula” and “Song of Solomon,” her role as an editor of iconic African-American literature and her time teaching at Princeton University. Featuring interviews with Hilton Als, Angela Davis, Fran Lebowitz, Walter Mosley, Sonia Sanchez, and Oprah Winfrey, who turned Morrison’s novel “Beloved” into a feature film.
Rated: PG-13 Running time: 1 hr. 59 min.
Tickets are $10.

“An ensemble of breathtaking freshness, vitality and balance.” – Steve Smith, NY Times

“Perhaps the most ravishing sound I have heard all year.” – Alex Ross, The New Yorker

Stile Antico is firmly established as one of the world’s most accomplished and innovative vocal ensembles, renowned for vibrant and expressive performances of music from the Renaissance. Working without a conductor, its twelve members have thrilled audiences on four continents with their fresh, vibrant and moving performances of Renaissance polyphony. The group has received three Grammy nominations, and performed live at the 60th Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden.

Based in London, Stile Antico has appeared at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals. The group enjoys a particularly close association with the Wigmore Hall, and has performed at the BBC Proms, Buckingham Palace, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Cité de la Musique, Luxembourg Philharmonie, and Leipzig Gewandhaus. Stile Antico is frequently invited to appear at Europe’s leading festivals: highlights include the Lucerne Easter Festival and the Antwerp, Bruges, Utrecht and York Early Music Festivals. Also Washington’s National Cathedral and Library of Congress, Vancouver’s Chan Centre, and the Quebec Festival of Sacred Music.

Stile Antico’s performances are often praised for their immediacy, expressive commitment, and their sensitive and imaginative response to text. These qualities arise from the group’s collaborative working style: members rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing artistically to the musical results. The group is also noted for its compelling programming, which often draws out thematic connections between works to shine new light on Renaissance music.

Lamoille County Players presents: Boeing, Boeing

Lamoille County Players presents: Boeing, Boeing

“Drink up. We’re in for a bumpy night.” Sage advice from put-upon maid Berthe (Jill Vize, Stowe) as Lamoille County Players brings a 1962 French bedroom farce to the stage in their sixty-seventh season with a production of Boeing, Boeing.

Boeing, Boeing is set in the 1960s, and centers on French bachelor Bernard (Brendan Peveril, Hyde Park), who has an apartment in Paris and is engaged to three stewardesses: New York-based Gloria (Andrea Gagner, Saint Albans), Italy-based Gabriella (Leanne Day Harple, West Glover), and Germany-based Gretchen (Christine Grzebien, Barton/Orleans). All three are engaged to him without knowing about each other. When his friend Robert (Chris Demars, Morrisville) visits from Vermont, Bernard's lifestyle begins to unravel. Complications from weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously, and catastrophe looms.

Director Gene Heinrich of Saint Albans (who directed Deathtrap and The Miracle Worker for LCP) chose Boeing, Boeing for its over-the-top, naughty French slapstick humor. “I wanted to bring something to the stage that defies our over-zealous political correctness. This is a classic play that touches on stereotypes and slightly adult themes in a hilarious manner. You will leave the theater with a smile on your face before realizing how offended you should be by the inappropriate situations and humor. A good time will be had by all!”

Performance dates for Boeing, Boeing are November 8-10 and 15-17 (Friday – Saturday, 7:00pm; Sundays, 2:00pm) at the historic Hyde Park Opera House in Hyde Park, Vermont. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for students, or seniors ages 60 and over. On Sunday, November 10 all seats are just $10 for the 2:00 pm matinee.

LCP is supporting the Lamoille Community House with a BOGO (buy-one-get-one-free) offer on November 8 & 9. Located at 103 Main Street in Hyde Park, the Lamoille Community House is a seasonal adult shelter serving the Lamoille Valley. Use promo come LCH when ordering tickets online, over the phone, or in person.

Tickets for all shows are available now, online at LCPlayers.com. You can pick your own seats and get ticket purchase confirmation, all at no additional charge. The box office (802-888-4507) opens an hour before each performance; call for additional information. If you are unsure of your plans, we recommend that you not make reservations, but rather buy your tickets at the door.

Malcolm Morley

Malcolm Morley

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by British-born American artist Malcolm Morley at its galleries in Reading, Vermont. Hailed internationally as a pioneering figure of his generation, Morley was a founder of Super-Realism, which developed as a counterpoint to Pop Art in the 1960s. He is also remembered as an artist who deliberately broke away from the stylistic innovations which brought him this initial fame. Over a career spanning sixty years, Morley’s practice continually evolved, his paintings becoming ever more colorful, expressive and distinctive. This exhibition includes approximately 40 paintings, sculptures and works on paper created between 1964 and 2016 from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. On view from 11 May through 1 December 2019. Appointments available 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sa–Su. $10 pp. First Friday of every month, 5–8 p.m., free without a guide.

Joel Barber & the Modern Decoy

Joel Barber & the Modern Decoy

UPCOMING EXHIBITION

Joel D. Barber, Swan, Havre de Grace, 1950. Watercolor and ink on paper, 17 7/16 x 23 9/16 in. Collection of Shelburne Museum, gift of J. Watson, Jr., Harry H., and Samuel B. Webb. 1952-192.388. Photography by Andy Duback.

This monographic exhibition is the first of its kind to focus on the life and artwork of architect, author, illustrator, and pioneering decoy collector Joel D. Barber (1876-1952). Featuring more than 100 decoys, drawings, historical photographs, and watercolors from Shelburne Museum’s extensive collection and archives, the exhibition will be organized into five thematic sections. The first section explores Barber’s introduction to the world of wildfowl decoys and his early collecting years. The next section focuses on the Art Deco-inspired watercolors he used to illustrate his groundbreaking first book Wild Fowl Decoys published in 1934. The third section chronicles his various attempts at trying to design the perfect “Modern” decoy, amalgams based on historical precedents found in his collection. The fourth section examines the numerous ways Barber exhibited his collection publicly to shine a spotlight on decoys, including: duck shows, art exhibitions, and the establishment of the world’s first decoy museum in 1947. Using existing watercolor portraits and measured drawings, the fifth and final section pieces together Barber’s unfinished second book The Decoys of North America, an ambitious project that consumed the final three years of his life.

Time Lapse: Contemporary Analog Photography

Time Lapse: Contemporary Analog Photography

Time Lapse: Contemporary Analog Photography celebrates the work of 14 international and national contemporary artists who use the darkroom as a type of laboratory and find inspiration in the vast array of 19th-century photographic processes, from daguerreotypes to photograms. Experimenting with the mutable medium of photography and employing a variety of materials—from cyanotype dresses made of tamale wrappers to a three-dimensional shelter displaying tintype portraits—these artists depict familiar subjects of landscapes, portraiture, and still life through a contemporary lens.
