Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he’s shocked to discover a live-in tenant who is not prepared to budge. His apartment is a viager – an ancient French real estate system with complex rules pertaining to its resale – and the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith), who has lived in the apartment with her daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) for many years, can by contract collect monthly payments from Mathias until her death.

Dance Film Sunday: Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb VS. Gravity http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/10/15/dance-film-sunday-born-to-fly-elizabeth-streb-vs-gravity/ http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/10/15/dance-film-sunday-born-to-fly-elizabeth-streb-vs-gravity/#comments Wed, 15 Oct 2014 14:08:26 +0000 http://rosendaletheatre.org/?p=11327 3:00 pm, $10/$9 members/$6 children

Take an exhilarating journey with MacArthur “Genius” daredevil choreographer Elizabeth Streb and her dancers as they push the boundaries between action and art in pursuit of human flight in Born To Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity at Rosendale Theatre, on Sunday, November 9, at 3:00 pm (new time). Streb’s movement philosophy “anything too safe is not action” is dazzlingly and breathlessly documented by Emmy-nominated film-maker Catherine Gund. “…Makes for jaw-dropping viewing,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Sometimes called the Evel Knievel of dance, Elizabeth Streb is the pioneer of a movement form called “POPACTION,” which is couched in the exploration of human potential – both physical and emotional. Through her work, she expands our notions of movement; explores the intersections of dance, performance, and stunt-work; and provokes ideas about how fear might enhance our experiences. Born To Fly wrestles with the complexities of age, gender, class, and race – both for her dancers and her audiences. “What does it say about the state of Hollywood action filmmaking that this year’s most dashing derring-do transpires in a doc about a choreographer?” The Village Voice.

Catherine Gund is an Emmy-nominated producer, director, writer and organizer. Her media work focuses on arts and culture, HIV/AIDS and reproductive health, the environment, and other social justice issues. Her films have screened around the world in festivals, theaters, museums and schools; on PBS, Discovery’s Planet Green, and the Sundance Channel. Gund’s most recent project, What’s On Your Plate?, is a critically-acclaimed, multi-media project about kids and food politics, featuring a documentary, book and curriculum.

Dance Film Sundays, a series which started in June 2010 under the auspices of the Rosendale Theatre Collective, are held on the 2nd Sunday of every month at Rosendale Theatre.

National Theatre From London’s Medea http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/09/29/national-theatre-from-londons-medea-2/ http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/09/29/national-theatre-from-londons-medea-2/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 01:00:52 +0000 http://rosendaletheatre.org/?p=11273 11:30 am | $12, $10 members

The Rosendale Theatre is proud to present this exciting encore screening of National Theatre’s much anticipated Medea. Carrie Cracknell directs Euripides’ powerful tragedy MEDEA, in a new version by Ben Power, opening at the Olivier Theatre in South Bank, London. Helen McCrory returns to the National to take the title role; the cast also includes Michaela Coel, Danny Sapani and Cath Whitefield. The production will be designed by Tom Scutt, with lighting by Lucy Carter, choreography by Lucy Guerin and sound design by Gregory Clarke.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she has left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace. It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

Helen McCrory’s theatre work includes The Last of the Haussmans, Blood Wedding and The Seagull for the National Theatre; The Late Middle Classes, Old Times, Twelfth Night and Uncle Vanya (Donmar Warehouse); and As You Like It (West End).  Her extensive film and television work includes Skyfall, Hugo, Leaving, A Little Chaos, Penny Dreadful, The Queen, Harry Potter, Street Life (RTS & Monte Carlo Best Actress Awards), Anna Karenina, The Jury and North Square (Critics’ Circle Award).

Carrie Cracknell’s recent work includes Blurred Lines (National Theatre), A Doll’s House (Young Vic, West End and New York) and Wozzeck (ENO). She is Associate Director at the Royal Court Theatre and an Associate Artist at the Young Vic, and was previously Artistic Director of The Gate Theatre.

Formed in the Spring of 2011, a group of neighbors gathered people from the 209 corridor (south of Kingston, NY) to discuss how they might help one another remain independent, strengthen their communities, and stay in their own homes. Our group relies on the volunteers–neighbor helping neighbor. We have nurses, business people, artists, homemakers, computer specialists, doctors, lawyers, educators–people with all kinds of skills.

“Tales of the Hudson Valley,” features a theatrical adaptation of the works of Washington Irving, America’s first man of letters. The performance will include portions of Irving’s popular stories and characters, including Rip van Winkle, Ichabod Crane and many others.

“The works of Washington Irving are national treasures and are part of the rich history and culture we enjoy here in the Hudson Valley,” said County Executive Mike Hein. “This unique and fun theatrical performance puts a new twist on Irving’s works. We are excited that the Rosendale Theatre is holding such a great event.”

Local theatrical contributor Ann Citron directs the performance, which has been adapted from Irving’s writing by playwright Edward Versailles. It’s known as a highly entertaining, humorous and insightful performance, and three actors play a total of 22 different characters throughout the three acts. The cast includes Jim Metzger, Virginia Ferri, and Doug Motel and music/sound effects by Fre Atlast.

“This project is the beta version for something that we want to create into an annual event,” said Edward Schoelwer, theater board member and programming chair. “It is meant to expand our literary, historical and cultural heritages for ourselves and tourists.”
