Where:
Historic Asolo Theater

The flickering imagery of pioneering stop-action animation is accompanied by the live gypsy swing of the Hot Club of San Francisco in this imaginative and innovative screening of two films by the pre-WWI European filmmaker, Ladislaw Starewicz: The Cameraman's Revenge, a charming piece about the marital troubles of beetles; and The Mascot, an adventure story about lost toys.

This performance is part New Stages 2015, RE:Imagined, which explores the creative response to influences both historic and imaginary, ranging from a whimsical interpretation of historic cinema to a visceral engagement with an envisioned environmental catastrophe.
