ULRIKE OTTINGER IN CONVERSATION

REDCAT presents a virtual screening of the documentary EXILE SHANGHAI, followed by a Q & A with its director Ulrike Ottinger.

Shot by Ottinger herself, the film conjures memories of Jewish immigrant lives in Shanghai—from Sephardim in the mid-19th century, to Russian emigrés escaping pogroms, to Europeans fleeing the Shoah. Unexpected versions of utopias emerged—such as the existence of a queer scene or the opening of Viennese-style pastry shops in the ghetto where the community was confined during the Japanese occupation.*

This event is curated by Bérénice Reynaud. See link below for details.

AUSTYN RICH — LUNCHBOX

AUSTYN RICH takes over Redcat’s social media on Saturday with a preview of new work, a look at life in quarantine, and a special presentation of LUNCHBOX—A MOVEMENT COMPOSITION SESSION.

My new project, LUNCHBOX, consists of a movement composition session where participants and l gather to share movement compositions in response to prompts or ideas I have prepared. Participants are given the opportunity to share their short pieces by using the “request-to-join” feature. This session will not be a performance but space to exercise movement expression. — AUSTYN RICH

TABAIMO AND MAKI MORISHITA AT REDCAT

It’s the same for all my works: it’s not so much about controlling the viewer’s point of view as it is about setting up a space which will encourage viewers to be proactive in how they look at the work. — Tabaimo
