First Look: Work-in-Progress screening of Echo + Narcissus
Echo + Narcissus is a new dance film, directed by Andy Russ, in collaboration with poet Laura Brown Lavoie, Doppelgänger Dance Collective, and students from the Jacqueline M Walsh School for the Arts. Drawing inspiration from the ancient Roman myth, the film is a surrealist reflection on contemporary issues of self image, social media, and the lure of beauty.
This project was initiated as part of AS220’s Community Live Arts Residency.
Funding provided in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and private funders.
Drew Christensen is a singer-songwriter out of Cumberland, Rhode Island who has been playing in and around the Providence area over the past few years. Expect a wide range of dynamics throughout his performance and within each song. Intricate guitar work, looped/layered instrumentation, and building vocals all contribute to the raw rock sound. He is currently working on recording his first full album and hopes to release this later in 2017.
Matt Smith is an American singer-songwriter from Providence, Rhode Island. Influcenced by pop/rock/folk he has a simple, working class approach to song writing. Live performances are entertaining, energetic, and inconsistent. All songs Made in USA.
Jim Beaver is the former front-man of the Philadelphia indie-rock trio The Sheep, and folk roots group Blueberry Magee. He was a finalist for WXPN World Café’s Philly Rising: Best of Philly competition and the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase. After a hiatus, he has recently begun playing again in Providence, songs that blend humor, rock’n’roll, and blues, and the adventures of a the Moon Man.

“Let’s meet up, sit together, and make stuff!
*Bring whatever handicraft project you like: knitting, hand-sewing, embroidery, origami, drawing, soldering, beadwork, whittling, weaving, etc.
Punsxutawney Phil says “Don’t drive angry to this shindig and also I’m not sure just how reliable my shadow is these days, so there’s still hope!” Tables and chairs will be setup as per usual so crafting and general neighborliness will be the focus of the fun.
If I bake something this month (like I did the last two) we’ll officially be on a streak, which I like very much. So fingers crossed.
And – just in case you didn’t know – you can totally grab some goodness from The Bar and Foo(d) and bring it into the Performance Space where we’re hanging out.”
