Presented at VOX, in partnership with SBC Gallery of contemporary art and the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, this three-part screening program is an integral part of the exhibition Putting Rehearsals to the Test.
The program brings together fourteen productions made between 2006 and 2015, backdropped by three key works that have been essential to the development of the overall project since 2012: Yvonne Rainer’s Lives of Performers (1972), Jean-Luc Godard’s Passion and Scénario du film Passion (both 1982), and the Italian underground film ANNA, by Alberto Grifi and Massimo Sarchielli (1972–75).
