20-02-2018 12:00:00 20-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Theater in Trance | 9:00 PM Fassbinder's only documentary film is this record of the Cologne theater festival, Theater of the World 1981. The program encompassed more than 30 groups from 15 countries and more than 100 performances. For two weeks, Fassbinder observed the participants in the festival and filmed their acts, eventually winnowing the selection and marrying the imagery to his own spoken recitation of texts by Antonin Artaud. A fascinating chronicle of the theatrical culture of the era, as well as an illustration of an unfamiliar dimension of Fassbinder's art, it features appearances from Squat Theatre (which originated in Hungary but were ultimately headquartered in a storefront space on Manhattan's West 23rd Street), the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, and the Kipper Kids, among other groups. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=279961 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
