April 2 End of the World

Until The End of the World is one of my favorite films. It is one of Wim Wenders' road movies, spanning continents.

It has two beautiful problems: it's too long and its soundtrack is too good.

Both problems are solved for one night only.

The film was shot in 15 cities over 7 countries. Made 25 years ago, it presages technology we have today, and some not yet invented.

It tells the story of a secret military invention which can record movies that blind people can see. A son steals the device to record visits to his parents' friends around the world and bring them to his elderly mother who is blind. A plot complication is the impending crash of a nuclear satellite to earth. Along the way he meets Claire and they fall in love. The son and Claire are chased across the world by many characters wanting the device back, chasing the proceeds of a bank robbery, lovers and exes chasing one another and chasing some rare opals. The plot is finally resolved in Australia in scenes surreal and beautiful. It's a science fiction road movie music video made by a gifted director.

Like many films, Until The End of the World has been released at various run lengths. It streams in the US at 157 minutes. It was released on VHS at 158 minutes. In Europe it has been released at 179 and 280 minutes. Janus has restored the film and worked with the director to release a 295 minute version at 4K. That shows tonight. One night only.

The film's other challenge is a sprawling soundtrack. The selections range from top pop bands, college radio favorites, to field recordings of Pygmies singing in the Central African Republic. Many parts of the film read as a very good music video. But getting worldwide musical rights for each film release is a challenge. For tonight, that problem solves as well. But there will unlikely ever be a 295 minute worldwide release.

Film Until the End of the World at the Portland Art Museum - NW Film Center Whitsell Auditorium 1219 SW Park 5PM $9

March 27 Sharing Sharing

Risks. We all take them. There are downside risks and upside risks.

(We publish on mobile. If you want just the what where when, scroll to the bottom. This is an unusually long post!)

Downside risks are when you could feel discomfort, crash and burn, be injured, or die. Upside risk is when you survive another day, succeed, make someone happy or change the world for the positive.

The world of artists is taking risks.

We usually do not - as observers of finished art work - understand the internal and continuous experience of the artist with downside risk. Artists internalize that, in every moment.

Our experience as observers of artist risk - out the other (viewer) side - is as a touchstone for our own experience of risk. That is why risk is a powerful ingredient in artworks. It is an emotional carrier in my taxonomy of art ingredients.

Portland artist Wynde Dyer is an artist who takes personal risks in art making.

Classical artist risk takers are artists like Chris Burden. He approached real body risk from a masculine standpoint. Wynde Dyer goes far beyond that in the challenges she undertakes as an artist.

Existential risk.

She has an ambitious show this afternoon, sharing the scraps. you should see, it closes April 27, today is the reception and an event to meet the project collaborators and supporters. We will return to that in a moment.

Dyer moved to Portland and opened Golden Rule, a collaborative art vintage shop. Each month she invited an artist to make an installation in the shop. Dyer then selected vintage clothing items to be sold in the shop to accompany the art.

In the 1970's to 1990's her mother, with a fabulous fashion sense, acquired clothes. Many. Incredibly all one size. But she never discarded any.

Her single mother died alone in Wynde's small California childhood home. Wynde was called to remove her mother's every possession from that childhood home.

It became Wynde's burden to return each piece of clothing to the world.

Over several years, she returned those clothes through art exhibitions in the Golden Rule store, in itself a social practice art project, though that term was not yet common.

Her work has continued.

She reprinted her mother's letters to a lover inmate for an installation, 2010.

She constructed a 1/2 scale model of her childhood home in 1751 Easy Street: For Sale by Owner, 2011. She spent weeks at night alone constructing it along with many volunteers at other times throughout.

She shredded her family photographs and then meticulously sorted the shreds by color, in Sorting Things Out, 2012.

She engaged in performances recreating intensely physically sickening experiences from childhood phobias - Things That Aren't Safe, Are, 2013.

She created the very, very intense Frantic Efforts to Avoid Real or Imagined Abandonment in 2013. The work included a cycling show in images of her mother's many lovers. Those mother's lovers competed (successfully) for her mother's attention; her child was emotionally abandoned, and they did bad things to that child growing. The work covered every wall with a list of the first names of every of the artist's crushes densely inscribed by hand on the gallery walls in metallic leaf, paired with her name. Trying to figure out adult relationships with imperfect models. It is a meditation on personal value when we are small, but when we need to be large, in relation to parental and personal crushes.

She has worked with Chinese artists recreating past living space illustrations.

She is a social activist. She is an accomplished organizer for taxi drivers facing exploitation and extinction.

In comparison, Burden is a poseur. We believe Dyer will be recognized as surpassing him and surviving too.

Dyer returns with a deep-rich project in Sharing the Scraps. She has engaged houseless-homeless individuals to create designs. She has sewn them in the manner of quilts along with her own designs from colored poly tarp material. Poly tarp - blue is common and you know. It is a common Chinese-manufactured import available in many primary colors. Each work is for sale to benefit rent support for individuals about to be made homeless by Portland's changes.

For the reception, Dyer has invited individuals from Hazelnut Grove, a self-organized houseless community in North Portland to help out. A displaced Portland chef, Amanda Luna, will be cooking tasty food for the event. Our Olivia Darlings provide movement performance about 5:45PM. Music by Brendan Hanna. Special dranks by New Deal+Stumptown; chocolate+coffee is A-OK.

March 20 Dr Strangelove

What do nuclear weapons mean to you? They were a thing for Hiroshima & Nagasaki, then the fear of them, then not so much a thing, maybe they will be a thing again with North Korea and Iran?

For Portland filmmaker Matt McCormick they are a thing.

In the 1960s, American military bombers flew straight toward Russia 24x7 armed with nuclear weapons to attack. They turned around just before the Russian border, every day. The film Dr Strangelove is a fictionalized version.

The filmmaker's grandfather was one of those pilots.

His grandfather's plane, carrying nuclear bombs crashed in Maryland. The crash was caused by the tail of the plane breaking off, a known design flaw. He survived, walking out a snowstorm at night. The bombs did not go off.

Matt McCormick is previewing his feature film Buzz One Four about the crash and the Cold War program tonight. It's a rough cut. And he is interested in audience feedback.

At the Hollywood Theater 4122 NE Sandy Boulevard.7PM $10

March 15 - April 3 International Butoh in Little Portland

Butoh is a contemporary dance performance movement from Japan. Water in the Desert brings some top butoh artists from Japan, Germany, Mexico and the US for three weeks of classes and public performances. The classes are sold out.

The founders of butoh were men. They were in a deep experiment with themselves, their bodies and a new performance form based on nature. They could not comprehend in the early days what explorations women would make.

Natsu Nakajima became the first woman butoh collaborator with the founders at age 19. She formed her own company, Muteki-sha, at age 26. She is an early pioneer incorporating intellectually disabled individuals into performances and continues to work at age 73.

Koichi Tamano was an early principal dancer with the founder beginning about age 19. He met his wife Hiroko in the founder's butoh dance studio when she was 18. They came to the United States in the 1970's to form their own troupe Harrupin-ha and teach in Berkeley. They also operated the wild sushi restaurant, Country Station, in the Mission, pre-gentrification. He often uses an about 10 foot diameter clear plastic sphere, performing inside it, like a giant egg. He continues to work at age 70.

Diego Piñón is a new generation butoh performer who combines psychodrama, Mexican shamanism, inspiration by the landscape of Mexico and butoh.

Yumiko Yoshioka was an early member of the female butoh group Ariadone. She now operates from the international performance center Schloss Bröllin in Germany. Each year, they gather a small number of butoh performers to collaborate.

There are a series of public talks which you can register for on the Water in the Desert Website. They are free.

Wednesday, March 16th 7pm The slowing of Time in Butoh Aesthetics
Wednesday, March 23rd 7pm Rewilding the Body
Wednesday, March 30th 7pm Unpacking Our Domestication and Domination
Sunday, April 3rd 7pm The Future of Feminine through Embodiment

There are also a series of performances with the guest artists joined by Portland and Seattle dancers. They are at 8PM and tickets are available on the Water in the Desert Website. Admission is $12-18 for each.

Saturday, March 19th Natsu Nakajima will be joined by Meshi Chavez, Teresa Venderkin, Tracy Broyles and Kay MacMillan

Friday, March 25 Koichi & Hiroko Tamano will be joined by Stephanie Lanckton, Pepper Pepper and Wobbly.

Thursday, March 31 Diego Piñón will be joined by Mizu Deiserto, Douglas Allen, Christopher Mankowski and Dreaming Body.

March 13 Capture or Not

Dance, like all performance, is ephemeral. It is difficult to record for vibrant experience later. It is a challenge for videomakers. It has an unusually large dynamic range in lighting, cameras are challenged to capture it. Color management is challenging. A multi camera setup is ideal. Synching across takes requires using the score as the timeline. There is a school of thought that a single long shot of the whole stage is the only way to record dance. That approach tends to be boring.

Today is an afternoon of dance videos from the 2015 Outlet Dance Project and a discussion with local videomakers Karl Lind, Wobbly Dance, SubRosa Dance Collective and more.

Discussion 3PM-4, Videos 4:30PM-6.

Volt Divers is a monthly show of analog synth performances.

Electronic music goes back in time - see Robert Moog was an early pioneer in modular analog synthesizers, beginning in 1963. Analog synthesizers use modules such as tone generators, filters, compressors, gates, modulators, samplers and sequencers. The modules are connected in the musician's choice of patch cords. They often have a keyboard and a myriad of knobs.

Each musician essentially builds their own instrument by connecting the modules with patch cord wires and setting the knobs. The instrument can be changed, and is, within and between performances.

The Volt Divers evening consists of 6-10 short performances, accompanied by live visual projections. Performers this month are: Ross Fish, Dump Shock, Rise of Necropolis, Strange Haze, Dr Strangeknob, LoFI Freq, Dweomer, Grease Envelope and E*t My Shit. The event starts on time and sells out free. Volt Divers at Lovecraft Bar 421 SE Grand 7PM-10 Free
