Screen Shot 2019-05-05 at 7.52.13 PMIn Frederic Church’s Ombra: Design in Conversation with Nature” showcases multimedia design concepts and installations, developed by leading architects and select artists. As Guest Curator, Barry Bergdoll (of Columbia University and the Museum of Modern Art) invited a group of today’s most exploratory architects to respond to the transitional outdoor rooms at Olana that are so essential to the original 19th century design of Olana’s Main House. These architects were asked to examine assumptions about the relationship of architecture and landscape at Olana, as well as to explore the Main House’s transition to the surrounding natural environment, particularly in our time of climactic and environmental change. The resulting exhibition combines hand-drawn sketches, painted renderings, three-dimensional models, and video and computer animations.

Bread and Puppet Theater’s ‘Diagonal Life: Theory and Praxis’ at TSL, Apr 26

Bread and Puppet Theateris bringing their production, ‘Diagonal Life: Theory and Praxis’, to TSL in Hudson this Friday.

TSL_DIAGONALLIFE_CALENDARPAGE-746x1024“Diagonals are created from the leaning power of hurt verticals,” says Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet’s founder and director. Puppeteers long ago realized that the most aesthetically radical movements for puppets are diagonals, because these movements cannot be sustained by human actors or dancers for more than a moment.

Diagonal Man brings all the bewildering, beguiling, and downright funny possibilities and implications of diagonality to life with song, dance, magic, mechanism, and stunning cardboard and paper maché puppets painted in Peter Schumann’s exuberant, slapdash expressionist style.

After the performance Bread and Puppet will serve its famous free sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread and Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread and Puppet Press – will be for sale. The Bread and Puppet Practitioners-of-the-Pursuit-of-What String Band will welcome the public.

BENEFIT SUPPER: Before the show, join the performers at 6:30 PM for a meal at TSL to benefit Bread and Puppet Theater. Price of $35 includes supper and admission to the show.

Menu: Spring Tortellini Soup with Sweet Peas, Golden Beets, and Greens (Vegetarian);  Kale-Stuffed Cauliflower (Vegetarian, Gluten Free); Garlic Roasted Artichoke and Asparagus (Vegan, Gluten Free); and Strawberry Rhubarb Custard for dessert!

DATE/TIME:
Friday, April 26th, 2019 / 7:30pm (Doors at 7)
Benefit dinner – 6:30pm

Against great odds, they are making a difference.

The Crandell Theatre Continues to bring movie-fans an increasing roster of diverse offerings. This weekend, there are two matinees with Amores Perrosplaying on Saturday, and Mary Queen of Scotson Sunday. The feature for the week is The Favourite.

Olivia Colman won a Globe for her performance as Queen Anne. Also with Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos who gave us The Lobster.
