Sample student film, Catherine Wityk’s “To See A World” (based on a fragment of William Blake’s “Songs of Innocence and Experience”):

The screening will be followed by a live improvisation / collaboration session with the audience, where we read aloud poems with live acoustic music. Free kazoos, noisemakers, and other sound-generating items will be distributed to all of the audience–or you are welcome to bring your own instruments!

The Parallel Octave Chorus and student performers from JHU Summer’s Theater & Music Lab will be providing more musical mayhem.

***Also featuring a special guest film by Polish artists Marta Ostajewska and Justyna Apolinarzak.***

Screening made possible due to the generous support of the following Hopkins departments and programs:

Images from the reading of “End of the Line” at Single Carrot Theater at Artscape, on Sunday, July 21, 2013. With live music by the Parallel Octave Chorus and JHU Summer and Pre-College participants in Theater & Music Lab, and with slide projections designed by “Auteur 101: Short Film Laboratory” summer students, under the guidance of Baltimore filmmaker Meg Rorison.


We also had the opportunity to hold a workshop with the audience before our reading, and teach them some of the songs and choruses from the play.
