Infinite Variety Productions Presents CENSORED ON FINAL APPROACH, 8/18-26Infinite Variety Productions Presents CENSORED ON FINAL APPROACH, 8/18-26
by BWW News Desk - Jul 6, 2014

'Censored on Final Approach' is the story of four WASP (Women Air Force Service Pilots), a group of roughly one thousand women hired by the United States Air Force during WWII to fly military aircrafts and tow targets for live anti-aircraft artillery practice, thereby freeing male pilots for combat missions. The women in Ms. Ravel's play are willing to accept any mission for their chance to serve their country, gain the respect of their male counterparts, and experience the thrill of flying. As one of the characters in the play puts it, 'The difference between the men here and us? You have to be here, we want to be here.' In the face of prejudice from male pilots who respond with constant sabotaging of their planes, these women go to extremes to prove their worth. 'Look at us,' says one. 'We are no longer normal. We take any mission, no matter how dangerous, we are scared to smile, scared to act like ourselves. Scared that we will lose the chance to fly.' When a fellow female pilot crashes, however, the surviving WASPs begin to question their roles and their readiness to risk everything to prove themselves in the cockpit. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Aug 29, 2014

Stills, a photographic series shown by Sarah Charlesworth (1947-2013) in February 1980, helped to define a photography-driven movement in American art that remains a cornerstone of contemporary art: the Pictures Generation. The series of appropriated newspaper photographs, cropped and blown up to 78 inches tall, depicts people falling or leaping from buildings at life-threatening heights. The very title “Stills” evokes a movie still, or a moment frozen in time. These images are particularly haunting in an era when selfies and social media have partly Eclipsed the tabloid press. These over-lifesize images of frozen moments ask us to consider how our most private, existential experiences will play out in the public eye. (more...)
