A very happy new year to all! We at Direct Arts are extremely excited to be kicking off our 2011 Take Two season with a very special, all-Japanese program.
It begins with drinks (as does most everything special does) at 7:00PM for a happy (half) hour meet and greet with filmmakers, artists, social activists and you. Once we are properly tipped, we'll be screening Jeff Sousa's THE HIROSAKI PLAYERS, winner of Best Narrative Short at the Woodstock Film Festival. Next will be a reading of the play JAPANOIR, by noted Villlage Voice theater critic Michael Feingold, and directed by Nancy Robillard. Following the performance there will be a discussion with preeminent scholar Kyoko Hirano, as she and the evening's artists explore the connection between theater and film in Japan.
This promises to be an evening to remember, so join us at:
The Ballroom of the Ukrainian National Home
140 Second Ave (between 8th & 9th St)
East Village, NYC
$10 donation, no one turned away
This, and every second Tuesday of the month, now through June. For more information, including the rest of the season's schedule, please visit our website at: www.directarts.org/taketwo
Thanks and glad tidings!
