Marnie Weber: Twenty Years and Forevermore

Velaslavasay Panorama

1122 West 24th Street, Los Angeles, 90007

8:00pm

(MAY 30) Marnie Weber creates works that are at once haunting and mundane, beautiful and dissonant. Ever exploring the American mythos and mining its history for alternate lore, Weber collages powerful women into dangerous, faux fairytale backdrops that nonetheless illuminate very real issues. Through a multiplicity of disciplines, but with a surprisingly consistent focus, Weber creates worlds that parallel our own while invoking hallucinatory cosmologies reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch or H.P. Lovecraft. For over twenty years, she has chronicled these characters and their environments in moving images and Los Angeles Filmforum is proud to present a broad selection of Webers work, including excerpts from her as yet unreleased first feature entitled, Day of Forevermore plus a live performance by F for Evermore, which includes Weber, Doug Harvey, and Daniel Hawkins.

ADULTBALLETLA BALLET

Don’t let the traditional sound of the name fool you: this troupe of adult dancers specializes in the modishly contemporary ballet. In recent years,
it has performed work of Phillip McAbee, whose “Tarantella,” is a modern deconstruction of August Bornonville’s classic ballet now set in the
hipster community of Echo Park located in Los Angeles, California. Other dances being performed include “Rite” a Darwinian interpretation of
Vaslaz Nijinsky’s “Rite of Spring”, “Holberg Suite” with music of Edvard Grieg, “Run Cool”, and “Duet” with original score by
Composer Greg Lenczycki.
