Friday, July 8: Film Premiere: Parallel Octave Presents Anthology I, A Short Films Collaboration!
It’s a music video! It’s a Greek chorus! It’s ANTHOLOGY I. The Baltimore-based Parallel Octave chorus records poems with live improvised music. Eight filmmakers have shot videos for their tracks, from animation to live action to W.B. Yeats as performed by giant plastic lizards to Emily Dickinson read over a soundtrack of pitch-shifting synthesizers. This is the premiere of the half-hour long film collaboration, followed by a live performance by Parallel Octave, in which the audience will be cordially invited to make some noise. Bring your washboards, trombones, vuvuzelas, and your best T.S. Eliot impressions. Poetry was never like this, and neither was MTV. http://www.paralleloctave.com. 7pm. $10, $5 Creative Alliance mbrs.
