The Voice Machine

What is the very least we need in order to make an opera? The absolute minimum requirements? We begin with a body. Then we need something which allows us to view this body, let’s say light. And finally there’s you, the audience. These are the fundamental elements which allow us to set in motion the mechanics of opera. Now what if this body had a voice? And what if, forgive us, there was “music”?

Saturday, March 10, 2012 – TrashTalk Theater screens Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain : NYC

New media artist Jason Ponce brings TrashTalk Theater to New York City with an interactive screening of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “The Holy Mountain” at the Douglass St. Music Collective. This is a rare opportunity to experience this incredible film in a uniquely social way. About TrashTalk Theater: Trashtalk Theater is an interactive cinema experience that invites the audience to submit their own subtitles, thoughtful observations and/or snide commentary directly to the screen as films are viewed. This allows for alternative, group-articulated interpretations of the typical movie watching experience. The effect can be absurd or serious, profound or hilarious, all depending on the film, the mood of the audience, and how quickly the crowd can think (and type) on its feet. To participate in Trashtalk Theater, come armed with your quick wits and knowledge of obscure cinema, and bring with you any web-enabled device such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet. TrashTalk Theater presents: Jodorowsky’s “The Holy Mountain” @ The Douglass St. Music Collective 295 Douglass St. Brooklyn, NY 11217 Saturday March 10, 8pm FREE! BYOB!
