Chrysalis: A live themed competitive story telling event series

march.jpg

CHRYSALIS, a live themed competitive storytelling event series, continues into its second season at the Bundy Museum of History and Art.

Our theme this year celebrates the 60th anniversary of The Twilight Zone - the theme is: "Where is Everybody".

Each month people of all ages are invited to the Bundy Museum of History and Art’s Annex Theatre to tell true, 5 minute stories in front of a live audience. During the evening 10 randomly selected storytellers tell their stories. At the end a winner is announced.

The criteria is simple: all stories must be true, no notes, no props, and no rants! Just real people telling real stories.

Each event has a theme. Themes are meant as a loose suggestion for the narratives and provide a creative challenge, not as strict determinations of plot or structure. The current Chrysalis series take its themes from classic movies. We are looking forward to seeing you there. Remember, your stories don't have to have anything to do with the episodes themselves. The themes are a jumping off point. Hope to see you soon!

Chrysalis, a live themed competitive storytelling event, takes place in the in the Bundy Museum Annex Theatre (behind 129 Main Street in Binghamton, NY). Doors open at 7pm (storytellers should come early).

Admission is $5 and listeners and storytellers are welcome!

Summer Savoyards Present: The Importance of Being Earnest

summer savoyards.jpg

BUILDING ON THEIR 2018 SUCCESS with “Arsenic and Old Lace,” two Broome County arts organizations interested in the Victorian era are continuing their cooperative efforts this spring with Oscar Wilde’s classic farce “The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.” The production will serve as a fund-raiser for both the Summer Savoyards and the Bundy Museum of History & Art. The Savoyards, who are best known for presenting Gilbert & Sullivan operettas every summer, will be providing the stage know-how for the production; the museum will be providing the actual stage.

In “The Importance of Being Earnest,” two young gentlemen living in 1890s England – Jack and Algernon -- use the same pseudonym ("Ernest") on the sly, which is fine until they both fall in love while using that name. That leads to a comedy of mistaken identities.

Chenango Sessions and the Bundy Museum present Toronto singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitar player Shawna Caspi.
Shawna performs solo but there’s a whole band under her fingertips. She believes in poetry and the power of one person and one instrument, accompanying herself with a remarkable lyrical fingerpicking guitar style. Her performances capture audiences with grace and intimacy, whether the setting is a living room, a festival stage, or the bar car of a passenger train. Shawna loves the landscapes of her travels, and while weaving them into her songs, she has also been portraying them on canvases, painting one-of-a-kind works of art inspired by the rich scenery she sees on tour. Shawna’s fourth album Forest Fire is a collection of songs about burning things down and building them up again. When the words get heavy, they are held up to the light of love and gratitude. Shawna strives to be unafraid, to embolden quieted voices, to tell the truth above all else.

Binghamton: Valley of Creativity

Thursday, February 21 2019

Program Start 6:00PM     Doors Open at 5:30PM
Located in the Bundy Museum’s Annex Theater  
Free Admission

When Everett De Morier's latest book, The Invention of Everything Insights on Life, Food, and One Good Thermos, was complete, the publisher scheduled a pre-release tour in Binghamton due to the strong ties of the book to the area.

In wanting to connect Binghamton with these events, interviews were set up with local artists as background for the videographer traveling with them. But it was soon discovered that by using these book events as a framing device, you could capture great material about the lives of those who live and create in the area. People embraced the concept and the scope expanded.

And what started out needing only a single camera, migrated to full film and sound crews and the project took on an identity of its own. A documentary about the art scene in Binghamton.

On February 21st, Everett De Morier will read and sign his new book The Invention of Everything: Insights on Life, Food, and One Good Thermos. Then the documentary Binghamton: The Valley of Creativity, will premiere and be seen for the very first time.

Immediately after, the film will go live online and will be made free to the public.

You can find The Invention of Everything: Insights on Life, Food and One Good Thermos here

About Everett De Morier:

Everett De Morier became a professional writer in 1994, when he sold a copy of his son’s ultrasound picture along with an article entitled “My Wife Is Having the Reincarnation of Elvis” to the Weekly World News. For this, he received fifty dollars and a Bat Boy T-shirt.

De Morier has appeared on CNN, Fox News Network, NPR, and ABC, as well as in The New York Times and the London Times. He has also written for In-Fisherman, Florida Keys, Bride, and Parenting.

De Morier is the author of Crib Notes for the First Year of Marriage: A Survival Guide for Newlyweds and Crib Notes for the First Year of Fatherhood: A Survival Guide for New Fathers, both from Fairview Press.  He is also the author of The Thirty-Three Cecils, winner of the London Book Award in 2015 and The Invention of Everything: Insights on Life

Social Justice Films

In 1988 the 20-year-old Finn Kirsi Marie Liimatainen heads for the GDR to study Marxism-Leninism. Students come from around the world – from both sides of the Iron Curtain. They are functionaries, freedom fighters and left-wing activists. Young people united in the hope for a better world. The international solidarity at the academy is convincing, but the real socialism is marked by contradictions – the gap between theory and reality is obvious. In the summer of 1989 the course ends – a few months later the Berlin Wall falls.

24 years later, Liimatainen sets out on a cinematic journey around the world to meet up once more with her former fellow students. What remains of their dream of revolution? Are there any utopias left, which are worth fighting for?
