Author Activity from Black Radish Books

Brittany Billmeyer-Finn, whose Black Radish title, the meshes, will be published in Fall 2015, is a recipient of the SAFEhouseARTS SF performance residency. Her ensemble cast performed a version of the meshes in a multi-media performance that dramatized the internal process of making art by embodying the textual practice of writing through the filmography of Maya Deren. the meshes engages Deren's silent films and the unfinished documentary, The Divine Horsemen the Living Gods of Haiti. The performances dealt in such themes as ritual, obsession, spectatorship and archive; pushing up against the passivity of spectatorship and drawing on the tension between the voyeur, viewer and witness. the meshes debuted on Thursday April 2nd and had a second showing on Friday April 3rd at SAFEhouseARTS. Brittany rocks!
