Helen Lawrence at BAM!
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Photo Credit: David Cooper Synchronizing Live Theater & High Tech Film Noir at BAM The Brooklyn Academy of Music is currently presenting a great theater/film production by impressive visual artist (you can see his art-work at David Zwirner Gallery) and Canadian Stage director, Stan Douglas, with television writer (Boardwalk Empire) Chris Haddock. Borrowing from foreboding, moody film noir, Helen Lawrence kept the audience drawn to its story and fascinated by its visual duplicity. Not something we have seen before. A refreshing process that engages us intimately with the actors in their ability to tell the story and see their expressive faces plainly, in real time. Canadian Stage's excellent actors were channeling Damon Runyon from grave to stage, as authentically as if they were living in the time of its setting directly after World War II, when the world was wonky with back alley bookies, crooked cops, and murderous dames. They had to be thoroughly on their stage toes, s ...

Stage Door: <i>Helen Lawrence, Les Miz</i>
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Helen Lawrence, a theater-meets-cinema multimedia production, part of BAM's Next Wave Festival, is not to be missed. Running through Oct. 17, the clever, ambitious effort, the brainchild of Canadian Stage, is hypnotic to watch. Actors perform the hard-boiled story on stage, as several cameras shoot the action -- broadcast simultaneously in black-and-white on a huge see-through screen. Set in 1947 Vancouver, Helen Lawrence borrows key film-noir elements: a classy blonde (Lisa Ryder) from LA is on a revenge mission, staying at a seedy hotel in a world populated by bent cops, gamblers and prostitutes. She's looking for justice. Or is she? And who was really behind the murder of her husband? The actors perform behind the floor-to-ceiling scrim; it's sight, sound and motion in two dimensions and mediums. Conceived and directed by visual artist Stan Douglas, Helen Lawrence is a slick integrated experience: a staged film noir married to sophisticated digital tech. It underscores t ...

Cuts await, but board softens the blow in 191
Hometown Source - almost 2 years
District 191 School Board members voted April 30 to soften the blow of next year’s budget cuts by $1.3 million. The board voted to use a bit more in budget reserves to reduce the proposed budget-cutting target from $6.2 million to $4.9 million for the 2015-16 school year. Board members voted to accept a lower projected fund balance than they had been using to plan the cuts. To maintain an unassigned general fund balance totaling 10 percent of total spending, a $6.2 million cut would be needed in 2015-16. Board members voted to go with a 9 percent balance for budgeting purposes. The vote came in a special meeting attended by about 50 people, mostly employees, including sticker-wearing advocates for protecting school nursing positions. Under the $6.2 million plan, the district would cut four licensed school nurse positions and the director of health services position. Altogether, 68.4 positions were targeted, 52 from the ranks of the teachers union. Now that the budget-cutting ta ...

George Heymont: A Superb New Indie Film: The Story of Luke
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Sudden evictions are traumatic events in the lives of confused and fearful tenants. How well these people bounce back and reclaim their lives is the ultimate test of their resources, their resiliency, and the depth of the human spirit. Something unusual happened as I watched a DVD screener for The Story of Luke. Not only did I quickly realize that this was an exquisitely crafted independent film, I found it far superior to Sideways, Little Miss Sunshine, Juno, Lost in Translation, and Precious (all of which won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Film). I liked The Story of Luke so much that I watched it twice. Poster art for The Story of Luke Written and directed by Alonso Mayo, The Story of Luke is certainly not the only film to feature an autistic character. Leonardo DiCaprio (What's Eating Gilbert Grape) and Dustin Hoffman (Rain Man) delivered poignant portrayals of autistic men which were riveting pieces of work. However, unlike many previous ...
