PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

America’s Next Top http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/10/25/americas-next-top/ http://rosendaletheatre.org/2014/10/25/americas-next-top/#comments Sat, 25 Oct 2014 12:59:13 +0000 http://rosendaletheatre.org/?p=11352 9:30 pm | Live performance | $15 advance/$20 door

Comic and actor, Julie Novak, debuted her bold, hilarious, and ground-breaking one-woman-show, “America’s Next Top: One Top’s Hysterical Take on Life, Love, Tools and Boxes” during this year’s Women’s Week in Provincetown. “I laughed until I cried,” said one audience member after the show. “I’ve never felt so energized by any other performer I’ve seen in Provincetown and I’ve seen them all,” said a Women’s Week veteran.

The show, running one-night-only on November 22nd at the Rosendale Theatre, will be directed by Starling Productions/TMI Project founder and executive director, Eva Tenuto, who also co-wrote the show.

“America’s Next Top” offers keen insight into gender variance, the politics of queerness and everything in between. “The show is a collection of observations and true stories based on my life growing up as someone who found herself not really having a defined position on the gender spectrum,” says Novak.

Included are moving stories about such things as coming out and experiencing homophobia and discrimination, all told with a twist of humor unique to Novak. “America’s Next Top” showcases not only Novak’s strong comedic talents, but also her skills as a singer, impersonator and all around dynamic performer.

“She is a bold and fearless performer,” says Tenuto. “What I love most about her work is its ability to give a strong, powerful voice to an often voiceless community. Her ability to charm the audience and get them laughing, makes the sometimes taboo content accessible for everyone.”

Audiences are sure to be won over. Novak has been touching and entertaining audiences for years, with her signature brand of humor. In addition to performing in and around the New York Tri-State area for the past 15 years, she studied comedy and improv at Second City in Chicago, and has performed stand-up in Chicago, New York, and Washington DC. She recently participated, along with such comedians as Lewis Black and Kathy Griffin, in the Serious Laughs Comedy Festival in Kingston, NY and headlined Queerstock, a Woodstock, NY gay and lesbian cabaret.

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.
