Movie: Meru

In October 2008, renowned alpinists Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and Renan Ozturk arrived in India to tackle the Shark's Fin on Mount Meru. Their planned 7-day trip quickly devolved into a 20-day odyssey in sub-zero temperatures with depleting food rations. Within 100 meters of the elusive summit, their journey - like all previous attempts - fell short of the goal. Heartbroken and defeated, the trio returned to their everyday lives. By September 2011, Anker had convinced his team to reunite and undertake the Shark's Fin once more. Meru is the story of that journey, an expedition through nature's harshest elements and one's complicated inner demons, and ultimately on to impossible new heights.

Movie: Listen to me Marlon

Unbeknownst to the public, Marlon Brando created a vast archive of personal audio materials over the course of his lifetime. Now - for the first time - those audio recordings come to life. Charting his exceptional career as an actor and his extraordinary life away from the stage and screen, the film reveals the complexities and contradictions that were Marlon Brando by telling the story in his own words. Like an arch hypnotist Brando's own voice lead the storytelling - there are no interviewees, no talking heads, just Marlon guiding us into the padlocked recesses of his own memory, and through the story of his life.

Movie: The Look of Silence

A film by Joshua Oppenheimer. Executive Produced by Errol Morris, Werner Herzog, and André Singer. The Look of Silence is Joshua Oppenheimer's powerful companion piece to the Oscar®-nominated The Act of Killing. Through Oppenheimer's footage of perpetrators of the 1965 Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered, as well as the identities of the killers. The documentary focuses on the youngest son, an optometrist named Adi, who decides to break the suffocating spell of submission and terror by doing something unimaginable in a society where the murderers remain in power: he confronts the men who killed his brother and, while testing their eyesight, asks them to accept responsibility for their actions. This unprecedented film initiates and bears witness to the collapse of fifty years of silence.

Film: Caravaggio

Caravaggio is probably the closest Derek Jarman ever came to making a mainstream film. As it reveals the seventeenth-century painter's complex life - his brilliant, nearly blasphemous paintings and flirtations with the underworld - it is also a uniquely complex and lucid treatment of Jarman's major concerns: violence, history, homosexuality, and the relationship between film and painting. Caravaggio incorporates the painter's precise aesthetic into the movie's own visuals and uses the style and mood of his paintings to reflect his life. The result is Jarman's most profound, unsettling and astonishing reflection on art, sexuality, and identity.

Movie: Tangerine

It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone - Starlet, Generation Kill) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity. Director Sean Baker's prior films (Starlet, Prince of Broadway) brought rich texture and intimate detail to worlds seldom seen on film. Tangerine, bursting off the screen with energy and style, defies expectation at every turn.

Movie: Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine

From Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, the creator of such controversial and thought-provoking films as Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks, and The Armstrong Lie, comes another penetrating and contemplative exploration of contemporary society and those who shape it. Not a corporate sanctioned hagiography and made without Apple's cooperation or that of Jobs' immediate family, Gibney's film is a laser-sharp and balanced assessment of the technology mogul, who was part iconoclast, part savvy corporate chieftain, part genius, part tyrant.

A Mussmann/Bruce Production in collaboration with Gerald von Stoddard: Paperplay, fragments

A Mussmann/Bruce Production: CHINA SEE in collaboration with Suzanne Helms
During the 1980s and 90s, TSL worked with dancer and performance artist Suzanne Helms in NYC and in Hudson. (Some of you might remember "Let 'em Eat Biscuits"or the first "Mao Wow.") A long-distance conversation has been going on ever since, even as Suzanne has moved between Germany and Mallorca where she lives with her partner and daughter. During all these years, the performances have continued for each of us and now Suzanne will visit TSL and, together, we will construct a new piece called "KOWTOW/China See" There is no telling what the performance will be, but there is no doubt that it will be a memorable reunion.

National Theatre of London - NT Live
Live Simulcast: The Beaux Stratagem

The 'Beaux': Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their 'Stratagem': to marry for money.

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.

But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.
