November 17: Hot Club of San Francisco

8:00 – 10:00 pm, Seretean Center Concert Hall, OSU Campus.  Imagine yourself in the idyllic French countryside in the 1930's.  Sometime before dark, a gypsy caravan sets up camp in a field outside of town, luring the locals out for an evening’s fun.  The wanderers travel with a film projector, pointing it at the side of a barn.  As the images flicker to life beneath the stars, gypsy musicians play their guitars and fiddles, matching every movement on the screen with characteristic virtuosity, passion and humor.  Reviving this lost entertainment; The Hot Club of San Francisco presents Cinema Vivant, an evening of vintage silent films accompanied by live gypsy swing.  Before World War I, European filmmaker Ladislaw Starewicz pioneered stop-action animation, creating a never-before-seen movie experience.  A gifted storyteller who used the new medium of animation to illuminate his fantastic imaginings of the secret lives of ordinary objects, Starewicz has become an obscure cult hero.  Two Starewicz films are featured in Cinema Vivant—The Cameraman's Revenge, a charming piece about the marital troubles of beetles and The Mascot, an adventure story about lost toys.  On the other side of the Atlantic, American Charley Bowers revolutionized the industry in the 1920’s by combining animation with live action.  There It Is, a recently rediscovered film by Bowers, is a whimsical comedy about a mysterious occurrence investigated by Scotland Yard.  Travel back in time to enjoy a Cinema Vivant!  Performance tickets range from $10 for children 12 and under to $20 for adults.  Tickets can be purchased online at tickets.okstate.edu or contacting the Allied Arts office at (405) 744-7509 or allied.arts@okstate.edu

December 7: Drama Classes begin at StillyArts LLC

Various Times, StillyArts LLC, 1207 S. Main St.  Dramatic Arts education is an important means of stimulating creativity in problem solving. It can challenge students' perceptions about their world and about themselves. Dramatic exploration can provide students with an outlet for emotions, thoughts, and dreams that they might not otherwise have means to express. A student can, if only for a few moments, become another, explore a new role, try out and experiment with various personal choices and solutions to very real problems-problems from their own life, or problems faced by characters in literature or historical figures. In this Drama class, the instructor will use a wide range of unique drama activities to focus the bold, outspoken child and to draw out the quiet child and help them reach into themselves to discover their full potential. Visit https://stillyarts.com/dramaclasses for more information and registration.
