SATURDAYS, JANUARY 7-28, 2017
SHOWS: 8:00PM, HOW DARE YOU FOLLOWS AT THE LOWRY
Every year in January, we follow the Walker Art Center’s Out There series. As a “festival of performance alternatives” Out There is an opportunity to witness work that may come from outside our community and our sense of familiarity. We see it as an opportunity to refresh our critical viewing, thinking, and speaking.
Following each Saturday night’s performance at the Walker, an open table conversation is held about the work a few blocks away at The Lowry. The artists won’t be there so you can speak your mind.
$5 suggested donation (members free) at the table.
DYSTOPIAN/POST APOCALYPTIC IMAGINATION THROUGH MAD MAX:

THE ROAD WARRIOR (1981) — FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2017

FURY ROAD (2015) — FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2017
DOORS: 7:00PM, FILMS: 7:30PM
Why do we have so many films imagining a dystopian future instead of a utopian one? What do imaginings of a post-apocalyptic world tell us about our relationship to history? What does the Mad Max franchise mean for us in a country with its first authoritarian kleptocracy?
Beginning February 17 we will screen the four Max Max films, one per week, as a stimulus to conversations that address these and other questions about where we are and what we can do about it.
