Searching for Sebald in Brooklyn, June 4-5, 2014

Katie Fleming Work in Progress

If you are near Brooklyn in early June, you might want to check out this event put on by the The Deconstructive Theatre Project.

Searching for Sebald at FiveMyles
558 St. Johns Place, Brooklyn
June 4 and 5
7:30 PM

A work-in-process sharing as a part of the curated SpaceProgram, followed by an artist-audience conversation and a wine and beer reception.

Suggested by the life and writings of “memory’s Einstein” W.G. Max Sebald, Searching for Sebald is a live documentary film that excavates the hidden spaces lurking between geography and time, the imagined and the real, and the language in a book and the cinema in your mind. An innovative and striking collision of live movie making, analogue film reels, live Foley soundscapes, and animation, Searching for Sebald is the second in the company’s series of projects exploring the neuroscience of creativity through the construction of vivid and emotional performance events.

Attendance is complimentary, but reservations are required. Please RSVP to with your name, number of attendees, and contact email address no later than Friday, May 30.
