Open Lecture on October 10 at 4:00 p.m. Shows on: October 10 at 8:00 p.m. October 11 at 8:00 and 9:30 p.m. October 12 at 7:00 p.m. Reid Farrington’s (Colby ’99) The Passion Project is a forty-minute performance installation that explodes Carl Dreyer’s immortal film classic, The Passion of Joan of Arc, into an immersive projection environment placing the audience inside the film, sitting next to Joan, and subjecting them to the relentless questioning of her judges. The images from Dreyer’s masterpiece float through the air on screens made of simple wood and parchment, wielded by a solo female performer who makes Joan’s emotional journey palpable. This innovative blend of dramatic storytelling, archival film footage and cutting-edge technology creates a series of powerful and moving portraits.
