Leslie Scalapino & Konrad Steiner Way

REDCAT

631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012

8:30pm

“Steiner’s illuminations of Scalapino’s ever intensely tuned voice makes this so potent a work on its own shifting ground.” Steve Dickison, The Poetry Center, SFSU

San Francisco filmmaker Konrad Steiner took 12 years to complete a montage cycle set to the late Leslie Scalapino’s most celebrated poem, way—a sprawling book-length odyssey of shardlike urban impressions, fraught with obliquely felt social and sexual tensions. Based on the experimental writer’s own reading of the poem, recorded in 2000, Steiner created six stylistically distinctive films for each section of way, using sources ranging from Kodachrome footage of sun-kissed S.F. street scenes to internet clips of the Iraq war to a fragmented Fred Astaire dance number.
