Sister Sylvester To Present New Piece Examining The Ties Between Art And Rebellion

News   Sister Sylvester To Present New Piece Examining The Ties Between Art And Rebellion JACK, an arts center in Brooklyn, will present Sister Sylvester, the acclaimed New York performance collective, in their new work They Are Gone But Here I Must Remain Sept. 3–19. Based on first-hand interviews and research, the play charts the story of "The Fall," Peter Whitehead's 1969 cult film, and its rumored influence on international political activism in the 1970s.

They Are Gone But Here I Must Remain combines firsthand interviews, videos, and movement-based performance. It is staged within the genre of performance lectures, and explores the connections between image and action, artist and activist.

Director Kathryn Hamilton has explored the story that Peter Whitehead's film "The Fall" inspired the 1974 student occupations in Athens that forced the ruling military junta to cede power, restoring democracy to Greece. They Are Gone But Here I Must Remain uses interviews from "The Fall", along with the experiences of the artists involved, to question the point of contact between image and action.

They Are Gone But Here I Must Remain features Kathryn Hamilton, Kelsea Martin, and Cyrus Moshrefi.

Sister Sylvia is known for Dead Behind These Eyes a New York Times critic's pick, and The Maids' The Maids. For more information, or to purchase tickets, click here.
