1. JEW(ish) Trailer


    from Liat Rosenthal Added 608 4 0

    JEW(ish) is a thought provoking work of theatre centered on an individual’s search for his cultural identity. Eye Spy Arts – theatre makers Liat Rosenthal and Oliver James Hymans – presented a reworking of their celebrated theatre performance at the SUSPENSE London Puppetry Festival 2011 – the award-winning puppetry festival produced by The Little Angel Theatre. The performance weaves together an imagined Jewish heritage with real family oral histories, stories and memories. Traveling from shtetl to city, from past to present, and from the personal to the political, Jew(ish) explores cultural identity and the sense of belonging. Jew(ish) is supported by the National Lottery through the Arts Council England and the Unity Theatre Trust.

        from John Stanton Added 1,030 2 0

        We met with Louise McGarvey at Our Island Home on Nantucket in 2009. She was 96. She remembered the early days of flight on Nantucket, the days of biplanes and barnstormers, of runways that had to be mowed because when planes were not landing or taking off they were really just fields. This interview is part of the Nantucket Oral History Project.

            • Stand Still


              from Now Then & Again Added

              On just a few occasions between 1932 and 1940, two unrelated and far flung families picked up their brand new 8mm movie cameras and sparsely documented their lives. Left behind are the images of long-gone people and their forgotten events. Joell Hallowell and Jacalyn White have created a filmic collage of these home movies and old family photographs, layering them with the displaced voices of an array of viewers—people watching, remembering, wondering and imagining. In a fine balance between speculation and truth, this is a compilation of what is known, what is imagined to be true, and what can’t be imagined at all. “Stand Still” offers evidence, conjures truths, creates blatant lies, and draws impossible connections and conclusions. The result is a separate reality—the truth of speculation, the truth of juxtaposition. For more information: http://nowthen.squarespace.com

                from Kandace Creel Falcón Added 65 1 0

                Based on a quote from my mother's oral history, "I always had my sisters," I imagine and reflect upon the notion of "sisters are special." I explore this particular familial relationship through interweaving interviews, narration, and family photographs of two generations of sisters. I will present this work at NACCS, 2012.
