Lear '87 archive (condensed)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based in New York City, Mabou Mines is the premier avant-garde performing ensemble in the country. In 1987, Mabou Mines set themselves a task: do Shakespeare's King Lear--the entire play--changing all references to gender and royalty. Shot with three simultaneous cameras, LEAR '87 documents the early work on the play, where these superb and radical artists tackle what is probably the most patriarchal, darkest play in the English language -- testing it to see what would happen to power relations and lines of affection when the roles were gender-reversed. The archive is an intimate portrayal of Mabou Mines at their theatrical labors, a master class in avant-garde performance work

'Twin' brothers present a magic act although their 'real' interest appears to be the search for an unspecified treasure. Jealousy, romantic intrigue and violence, conventional elements of melodrama, are produced through a deliberate theatricality and the replacement of narrative credibility and realistic detail with staged tableaux of separate narrative and emotional incidents unconnected by the conventions of cause and effect logic. In what the filmmaker describes as "an unholy alliance of 'The Maltese Falcon' with (sections of) Proust's 'Remembrance of Things Past'" is his recurring interest in "the enacting of sexual desire, sexual difference, jealousies and emotional need in the only language we know, received speech ... This concern is masqued by a glittering surface of irony - an ironic use of language but also of form". (Simon Field, Monthly Film Bulletin)
