Pictures and Performance: A Melodrama
Brick Theater (575 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn)

Are static, two dimensional picture sequences and live, three dimensional performance pieces irreconcilable media, or are they actually star-crossed lovers, desperately longing for a reunion following centuries of tragic separation? Join us for a special afternoon of mixed-media pieces by Peter Burr, Juliacks, Bill Kartalopoulos, Ben Katchor, Shana Moulton, R. Sikoryak and Matthew Thurber, presented in a framework suggested by Josef Franz van Goez’s Lenardo und Blandine, an 18th century German melodrama that was visually transcribed to create — the first graphic novel?
