Thu Jan 17th: Sugar Life (live) + "Female Trouble" by John Waters

on Fri, 01/11/2013 - 20:32

 

For a wonderful start into the new year of 2013, Rabbithole is pleased to present it's first movie night of the year with a very special performance by SUGAR LIFE, followed by a screening of FEMALE TROUBLE by John Waters. That means double trouble!
 

8pm: SUGAR LIFE 

Born in France, Sugarlife (Christian Dautresme) is a performance/music artist living in New York City. “It’s like watching a cheap live daytime soap in which the main female character unravels onstage. There is usually some sort of molting which follows…” says Sugarlife. “Imagine if the United States became a third world country and people had to resort to living room theatre or decrepit mall theater for entertainment. I’m trying to… manifest the subconscious imagery that inhabits the world of dreams and the world of films by the likes of David Lynch, John Waters, Bunuel, Almodovar and others.

"If looking at my work in the context of Guy Debord’s society of the spectacle, the essential character of the spectacle is said to be a 'negation of life which has invented a visual form for itself', While trying to go against the grandiose spectacle created by society, I aim to eventually be assimilated by it and to bend the light that illuminates it. 
 
"Sugarlife explores and desecrates the time-based and spatial notions ofperformance art, identity, and sexuality with an entertaining and often absurd interactive, live performance. It tends to be hilarious as well as very scary. Whether charging the air with electronic blips, conjuring up a damaged visitor from the realms of the immortal spirits such as Kazuo Ono and Tatsumi Hijikata, or singing in a celestial soprano, Sugarlife becomes a sonic shaman whose transcendence is the only constant.  Neo-Fluxus freak out? Absurdist action art? The ghost of G.G. Allin as a drag queen from a distant planet? Sugarlife transcends any classification."
 
 
 

8:30pm: FEMALE TROUBLE

The king of bad taste at his best. This classic John Waters tells the depraved life story of obese criminal Dawn Davenport (Divine), from her bad-girl youth as a go-go dancer on Baltimore's infamous Block to her death in the electric chair. Populated with Waters' typical appallingly hilarious cast of screwed-up social misfits and dysfunctional lunatics, this is a wonderful thoroughly deranged comedy. An outrageous delight which has formed the raw back bone of today's cultural subconscious.

Thu NOV 29th: SunMoon (live) + "Leo the Last" by John Boorman

on Thu, 11/15/2012 - 21:44

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to schedule conflict, we were requested to change our screening last minute. We apologize for all inconveniences. We'll be screening the surreal  'Leo the Last' by John Boorman instead, still opened by a warming performance by Benoit Guerroué's SUNMOON.

 

8pm: SUNMOON

 
Benoit Guerroué is a French native who spent his youth the in the mystical land of Brittany, where he started playing shows and self-releasing an impressive amount of material under the name CARBONIC. Ten years ago he moved to the US where he continued recording, collaborating, and touring/playing in bands.
 
His performances are extremely varied, ranging from songs with just an acoustic guitar to more experimental renditions incorporating loops, electric guitar, keyboard. His live performance has presented as a 2-piece, 3-piece, and even 7-piece band. Leading and unifying all manifestations of his band, however, is a voice that is sublime, and otherworldly; a voice that comes from the heart, softly taking you away to another realm. 
 
Today playing under the Moniker SUNMOON, Benoit continues to channel his inspiration (whether it be Nature, love, or music...) through this special inner world to explore expression through sound and create a singular and very personal work of art.
 
 
 

8:30pm: LEO THE LAST

 
Director of the famed Zardoz, John Boorman's less known, yet equally compelling film "Leo the Last", is based on the George Tabori play "The Prince" and deals with class struggles of the poor against the haughty royals. Starring Marcello Mastroianni as the last in line of princes who gradually emerges from his decaying mansion to become involved with and help the people living in his deteriorating London neighborhood. This film won Best Director at Cannes in 1970.

VIDEO: August Wells

on Tue, 10/23/2012 - 14:42

Last week's movie night opened with an amazing performance by newly formed band August Wells, French horn, violon and keys followed Ken Griffin's entrancing voice and his guitar. Screened behind them were excerpts of Jean Rollin's first film, 1968 "The rape of the Vampire".

Thu OCT 18th: August Wells (live) + "The Daughters of Darkness" by Harry Kümel

on Thu, 10/04/2012 - 19:51

Rabbit Movie Nights are back! with our halloween special on this october 18th. We'll be screening 1971 vampire horror flick "Daughters of Darkness", directed by Belgian director Harry Kümel, opened with a live performance by August Wells.

 

8pm: AUGUST WELLS:

"Up on a hill, near a city that once bustled, but is now inhabited by people who have lost things like teeth, limbs and love, a man is singing.  His voice, beautiful, broken, makes everything around it fall quiet. Everything but the other instruments that swell up for emphasis, then fade back, tumbling down and down and down."

This is August Wells, a collection of songs and arrangements with vocals, electric guitar and piano with violin, percussion and various wind instruments. At its heart, Ken Griffin who has wandered the world and its venues with Rollerskate Skinny, Kid Silver and The Favorite Sons.   Accompanying Ken along the way, John Rauchenberger on piano with Sasha Vine and Louis Schwadron"

 -- Maggie Estep 
 
In Dublin and London, Ken Griffin recorded Shoulder Voices for Beggars Banquet label and Horsedrawn Wishes for Warner Bros. Records with Rollerskate Skinny and Dead City Sunbeams with Kid Silver. In New York City, with The Favourite Sons, Ken recorded Down Beside Your Beauty and The Great Deal of Love. 
 
John Rauchenberger is a New York City piano player who has played with The Favourite Sons, Maggie Estep, J.C Morrison, Dee Pop, Daniel Carter and Dave Sewelson. 
 
Sasha Vine is a Violinist from London England who has performed with The Sian Alice Group, Mike Bones, Ryan Sawyer, Patrick Holmes and Charles Gayle. 
 
Louis Schwadron leads the psych-pop band SKY WHITE TIGER and has recorded and performed with artists as far reaching as Radiohead, David Bowie, Elton John, Sufjan Stevens, Grizzly Bear, The National, St. Vincent, and a batch of supporting US tour dates with Rufus Wainwright.
 

8:30pm: DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS:

This 70's Belgian horror flick, is a classy erotic vampire film based on Sheridan le Fanu's gothic novel "Camilla", the classic tale of a lesbian vampire. Director Harry Kümel directs with stunning visuals, and reflects in many ways the campy lightness of Jean Rollin's stylish redemption horror genre. Delphine Seyrig's exquisite performance as the Countess Bathory is most notable is this film, resembling strangely a young Marlene Dietrich.
