Pictures and Performance: A Melodrama

A special satellite performance of the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, organized by Bill Kartalopoulos:

Are static, two dimensional picture sequences and live, three dimensional performance pieces irreconcilable media, or are they actually star-crossed lovers, desperately longing for a reunion following centuries of tragic separation?

Join us for a special afternoon of mixed-media pieces by Peter Burr, Juliacks, Bill Kartalopoulos, Ben Katchor, Shana Moulton, R. Sikoryak and Matthew Thurber, presented in a framework suggested by Josef Franz van Goez’s Lenardo und Blandine, an 18th century German melodrama that was visually transcribed to create — the first graphic novel?

Sunday, December 4 at 3 pm at The Brick Theater, 575 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222.
