YOU WEREN’T THERE is a curated cabaret of film, music, literature, and performance that celebrates transitory moments of cultural brilliance. The event is neither a concert, nor a reading, nor a film festival but a multimedia séance that conjures up another time and another place.
In its Fall 2011 debut, You Weren’t There takes you a sentimental journey to Gay Paree. Marvel to the sounds of Django Reinhardt! See the restored print of Luis Bunuel’s “Un Chien Andalou” in all of its eye-slashing glory! Thrill to the sensual undulations of the Parisian burlesque that has caused shock and scandal in the salons of Europe! Enjoy the chic sensibility of Jazz Age fashion that has revolutionized the very notion of clothing!
