An Evening of Sideshows, Cinema, Art & Angst

Thursday, October 20, Doors 6:30 pm, 7:00pm-10:00pm

MacKenzie Art Gallery, 3475 Albert St.

Admission: FREE

 

The MacKenzie hosts the Caligari Project for an evening of German Expressionist-inspired films made by Saskatchewan filmmakers, followed by a unique puppet sideshow and reception in celebration of the MacKenzie’s exhibition: German Expressionists and their Contemporaries. The exhibition includes the works of key figures—Max Beckmann, Käthe Kollwitz, Otto Dix, among others—representatives of a movement which transformed Europe’s angst in the first decades of the twentieth century into images filled with longing for alternatives to a decaying aesthetic and social order. As The Caligari Project demonstrates, the creative output of this turbulent period continues to be a source of inspiration for artists, filmmakers, actors, musicians, designers, dancers, and puppeteers.

 

German Expressionists and their Contemporaries is on view at the MacKenzie Art Gallery from September 24, 2016 to April 23, 2017.

       

Presented in partnership with Prairie Puppet Underground and Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative.

Thursday, October 20, 7:00pm-9:00pm

MacKenzie Art Gallery, 3475 Albert St.

Admission: FREE

 

The Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative will be presenting a visionary screening of short films paying homage to German Expressionism curated from international and local independent cinema submitted to the The Caligari Film Project.
Expressionist films often feature a dark and twisted aesthetic with sharp pointed forms, oblique lines and angles, low-key lighting and the use of exaggerated sets, acting, and mise-en-scene. Highly influential German Expressionism films include the classics The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), From Morn to Midnight (1920), Nosferatu (1922), Warning Shadows (1923), Metropolis (1927) and M (1931). The films screened this evening will be contemporary works influenced or inspired by such cinema, and will be an exploration of the excellence in cinematic language and technique developed over the past century, with unique perspectives on how Expressionism can be used to comment on the world today.

​This screening is presented as part of The Caligari Salon (above) in partnership with the MacKenzie Art Gallery.

Caligari Project Print Exchange Exhibition

Exhibition runs Tuesday, October 25 - Saturday, December 17

Opening Reception Thursday, November 17, 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Admission: FREE

 

Articulate Ink invites you to an exhibition of German Expressionist themed, print-based works, from both local and international artists. The exhibition presents more than twenty original prints submitted by both local and international artists as a part of the Caligari Print Exchange - a German Expressionist themed international print exchange, organized in connection with The Caligari Project.

 

Printmaking was a favored medium among German Expressionists, who used the process to distribute powerful utopian messages to the masses on leaflets, portfolios, posters, and manifestos. The works confronted religious, moral, social, and political matters with an energy and immediacy not possible through other mediums. The urgency of the issues is visible in the artists' handling of the medium who used distorted and exaggerated forms in a way that was unique amongst other prints of that era. This aggressive and striking approach became the hallmark of the German Expressionist artist. The artists in this exhibition explored the history printmaking played in German Expressionism and how German Expressionism has influenced contemporary printmaking practices.

Caligari Project Lantern Procession

Saturday, November 5, 5:00pm-9:00pm

Procession participants will gather at the Saskatchewan Science Centre 2903 Powerhouse Dr.

Admission: FREE

 

The Prairie Puppet Underground, Das Schulhaus German Language School, the Saskatchewan Science Centre and New Dance Horizons (NDH) are excited to be partnering to present a traditional German lantern walk in Wascana Park.

 

The Lantern Walk originates from the German tradition of the St. Martin’s procession, which commemorates the life of St. Martin of Tours. St. Martin is best known for sharing his cloak with a beggar during a snowstorm. While the processions take their origin from a religious practice, today they are strongly secular. Following the tradition of the St. Martin processions being led by a horse, the lantern walk will include a fantastic, larger than life lantern puppet horse. The custom of carrying lanterns is also rooted in the fact that “light needs to be brought into the darker times of the year” like many other festivals of lights traditions seen around the world.

Spring's Awakening - Adapted by Elizabeth Leavitt, Kenn McLeod, & Jeremiah Munsey from the play by Frank Wedekind

Nightly from Wednesday, Nov. 9 – Friday Nov. 11, 7:00pm-11:00pm

University of Regina, Riddell Centre Mainstage, 3737 Wascana Pkwy

FOR TICKETS CALL Theatre Box Office: (306) 585-5562

 

First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, the play closed after only one night in New York in 1917 amid pubic outrage and charges of obscenity. The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of a group of teenagers who, in their painfully funny contradictions, are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all. The play remains fresh and unsettling even in our own sex-saturated culture. Told in high expressionistic style, this adaptation retains the era and ideals of the original, and provokes a closer look at how we talk to our children.
