The Re- Taking of Pelham 1,2,3 (x3)
FILM(S) AND LIVE MUSIC with Mark Street, Bradford Reed and Geoff Gersh
Saturday January 24 7pm
The Picture Show 226 Green Street | Brooklyn, NY
6 $/ 60 m TRT
In this live performance three slightly altered versions of the same film (made in 1974, 1998 and 2009) will be projected side by side. Sound will be mixed from each of the three works with live musical improvisation by Bradford Reed and Geoff Gersh.
Narrative slippages, abstract fugues and time-travel counterpoints collide and mingle in this fractious and riotous remake of a remake of a remake of a book adaptation. NYC manages to both evolve and stay the same over the course of 35 years.
Projection and Concept: Mark Street
Pencilina: Bradford Reed
