An Evening of Experimental Film and Participatory Performance with Amanda Davidson
Doug Adams Gallery / Pacific School of Religion / 1798 Scenic Ave / Berkeley, CA
Join writer/artist Amanda Davidson and friends for a staged reading of You Move Me, a work-in-progress performance about transmission, technology, and female mediums. Engaging with the works of 18th century scientist-mystic Emanuel Swedenborg, the evening includes projections, sounds, automatic writing, and the lightest of possible participation from you, the audience.
The reading will be preceded by a rare screening of British artist Katherine Tulloh’s award-winning All Night My Dreams (2010). Created through a series of miniature stage sets and lushly drawn images, this color-drenched art-film is a visual response to Swedenborg’s enigmatic journal of dreams.
