Forbidden Zone Saturday, March 20, 2010, 7:30 p.m., MOMA Theater 2, (Introduction and Q&A with director Richard Elfman)
1982. USA. Directed by Richard Elfman. Screenplay by Matthew Bright. With HervÉ Villechaize, Susan Tyrrell, Danny Elfman, Viva, The Kipper Kids. In a subterranean Sixth Dimension ruled by a sex-obsessed king and queen, a wildly dysfunctional family of characters endures scatological sight gags, enslavement, and physical abuse in order to rescue a kidnapped heroine. Deemed politically incorrect upon its original black-and-white release, Forbidden Zone is a mix of avant-garde tomfoolery, underground Yiddish cabaret, and the libidinous 1930s spirit of the Fleischer brothers, Cab Calloway, and Josephine Baker. The film, which documents the work of Los Angeles–based musical performance artists The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo and features Danny Elfman’s first film score, serves as a reminder of the influence that West Coast pop culture of the era had on Burton’s creative imagination. Richard Elfman’s digital-color restoration of this cult classic reinvigorates it for new audiences. 76 min.
An Evening with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
Monday, March 22, 2010, 7:00 p.m. , MOMA, Theater 2, T2
New York–based artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (b. Great Britain, 1950) has been testing the limits and conventions of music, language, art, and identity for almost forty years. As a founding member of the seminal industrial band Throbbing Gristle, P-Orridge made music history. More recently, in collaboration with his partner Lady Jaye, the artist started an ongoing experiment in body modification aimed at creating one “pandrogynous” being. For this discussion, P-Orridge focuses on works created with the 1970s British avant-garde performance collective COUM Transmissions. The group’s collaboration culminated in the 1976 retrospective PROSTITUTION at London’s I.C.A. Gallery, which was vehemently attacked by the press and even debated in British Parliament. P-Orridge will show rare footage and images of COUM’s performances.
