Lost Lounge, The

Synopsis:
the Lost Lounge is a tribute to the people who hold out and to the places people gather to sift through what is lost and found when delicate memory is confronted with hard progress. It is a dark shadowy lounge populated by some uniquely queer yet recognizably universal characters whose moods swing between pessimism for the future and optimism of the past. All set to the beat of some different drums.

Must - the Inside Story

Synopsis:
This is part of the Under the Radar Festival. In collaboration with the UK-based Clod Ensemble, New York performance artist Peggy Shaw takes the audience on a journey across the landscape of her own body. Renowned for her own gender-bending autobiographical work, she recounts her extraordinary experiences of the medical profession from her current perspective as a 65-year-old lesbian grandmother. Must weaves together the stories of a lifetime-giving birth on the way to Woodstock, her mother's electric shock treatment in 1950s America, the loss of a loved one-with projected microscopic images and live musicians performing a powerful score.

Ruff

Synopsis:
Peggy Shaw has always had a host of crooners, lounge singers, movie stars, rock and roll bands, and eccentric family members living inside her. Ruff is a tribute to those who have kept Shaw company over the last 68 years, a lament for the absence of those who disappeared into the dark holes left behind by her recent stroke, and a celebration that her brain is able to fill the blank green screens with new insight.
