About the movie:
Rating: PG-13
"Cruella," which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. One day, Estella's flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar winner Emma Thompson. But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable, and revenge-bent Cruella.

October 2 1:00 p.m.

With Jovencio De La Paz, Tannaz Farsi, Christine Miller, and Xia Zhang, Moderated by Carmen Brewton Denison

Recognizing underlying systems of power is crucial when addressing more specific issues around access. “Habits Of Denial” begins with a conversation confronting exclusionary systems that are embedded in the ways we communicate with one another.

Portland-based writer, educator, artist, and activist Carmen Brewton Denison will moderate a think-tank conversation with artists Jovencio de la Paz, Tannaz Farsi, Christine Miller, and Xia Zhang. Discussions will examine how the systemic and embodied elements of colonialism and white supremacy are experienced in these visual artists’ studio practices and, more broadly, how it impacts the words we speak and how we think.

This conversation is a culmination of Describing Language: Thinking Through Access and Communication, an exhibition-as-laboratory at New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art, University of Southern Indiana, which exists online as well.

Presented by the Center for Art Research, this program is organized as part of Habits Of Denial: A Series of Programs on Access curated by Tiffany Harker and Iris Williamson, CFAR’s 2021-22 Curators-in-Residence. Programs are made possible by the Ford Family Foundation.

Synopsis of the Play: 

Personal History follows an African-American couple as they navigate three moments in American life, stretched out over a century in the city of Chicago. The highly educated pharmacist Eugene enters the world of the play in 1903, outraged that he is overqualified and underemployed. At an elegant parlor party hosted by his white business associate, Eugene scandalizes the other guests by challenging their comfortable liberalism. He also meets his future bride, Bethany, herself an accomplished business owner. Toying with time, the play has the couple moving into this same home in an exclusive all-white neighborhood in the early 1950s. Race and class are further jumbled as the action shifts to the 1990s -- the house is now a chic restaurant where Eugene and Bethany, divorced years earlier, have their final transformative encounter.

 

Rehearsal and Performance Information:

Rehearsals will be held Sundays through Thursdays, beginning sometime mid-October, breaking for the holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year) and continuing when school resumes in January.
