Burn Brightly Premiere a Success
My short film Burn Brightly premiered Monday at the DGA Theatre. Is was surreal. People laughed a lot more than I expected. I think part of that was due to the large number of audience members and part of it was the programming order. We came right after a few (excellent!) films that were a little heavier in subject matter, so I think the audience was ready for a change in tone. Very amazing, educational and surreal all at the same time!
Yay, I’m covering the poster!

Terra Psych Night!
WEDNESDAY NOV 28TH AT 8PMIts landscape playtime! featuring:
- a video performance by Susanna Battin with live sounds by Paul Fraser
- a sculptural installation and reading by Tanya Brodsky
‘With Abandon’ is a sound and video performance that uses Hi8 documentary footage of waste landscapes and their public use. The performance presents two sites as subjects- the Chiquita Canyon Landfill (one of the last operational landfills in LA County) and a communal burn heap in a forgotten plot of land behind a middle school in Oregon. They have come to represent moments of personal transformation in my life, while they themselves undergo their own ecological changes.
The video is manually edited live using multiple projectors while Paul Fraser creates a live score with field recordings and acoustic sounds of the performance space. When mixed, the landscape recordings and the environment of the performance space synthesize into an imaginary third site- a waste site containing its own ecosystem of decomposing flower clippings, reject household appliances, circling crows, and paranoid security personnel. -Susanna Battin, Oct 2012
‘Modern Troglodyte’ is a sculptural installation comprised of a brightly colored, warmly lit environment of stalactites and stalagmites encased in a spherical shell, which sits on a pedestal inside a diminutive light-proof tent. The interior of the piece is viewed through a protruding apparatus which is accessible only by crawling into the tent. The viewer is forced into an intimate interaction with the piece that is simultaneously child-like and sexual while excerpts from the book Cliff Castles and Cave Dwellings of Europe by Baring-Gould are read. -Tanya Brodsky, 2012
