Documentary Film Finding Vivian Maier | Vivian Maier Photographer

Have you seen the film Finding Vivian Maier? This intriguing documentary shuttles from New York to France to Chicago as it traces the life story of the late Vivian Maier, a career nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs has earned her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers. Highly recommended viewing after you eat Thanksgiving dinner this week. #DocoftheWeek http://www.vivianmaier.com/film-finding-vivian-maier/

"Finding Vivian Maier": An intriguing documentary film which traces the life story of accomplished photographer Vivian Maier.

On Nov.12th at 8pm ET, join @donkeysaddleorg for a 2nd preview of our Vignette Collective’s works-in-progress and virtual fundraiser in support of Palestinians in Gaza.

DSP’s Vignette Collective has been deep in the process of examining the standard narratives surrounding our communities and will be sharing our collective experiences that expose and demystify the prevailing structures of settler colonialism through poetry, personal essays, and performance.

We will share these works-in-progress once more, in a space intended to uplift diasporic Palestinian narratives, as well as foster deeper connections to the struggles of Black, Indigenous and Chicanx communities here in the U.S. In the wake of the attacks on Palestinian peoples, the Vignette Collective is holding this preview as a fundraiser to support Palestinians in Gaza in urgent need, as well as to support the continuation of this important work.

In the Room with Opalanietet Pierce of The Eagle Project

Check out this podcast by our friends at Donkeysaddle Projectsfeaturing Opalanietet of The Eagle Project.

Today we’ll be highlighting one of Donkeysaddle Projects’ creative partners, Opalanietet Pierce, also known as Ryan Pierce, Founder of The Eagle Project. Created in 2012, The Eagle Project, produces theatre for, by, and with Native communities. Opalanietet is Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape, originally hailing from Southern New Jersey and Delaware. He had the privilege and the honor of receiving his Lenape name, "Little Eagle," on original Lenape land at the age of 12. As a Native artist Opalanietet is deeply passionate about incorporating American voices that aren't frequently heard, especially those of Native communities. He wrote his first play, “This Play is Native Made '' in 2015 with Donkeysaddle Projects and was invited to perform it for the first time at The Ashtar Theatre in Palestine.

Reflections on 20 Years Later

This post is written by Kyla Jeanne, cast member in Docbloc's "20 Years Later" debuting later this month. When I first came onto this project I did not expect to write anything. I figured the script was set, cast dynamics formed, I thought I’d be expected to show up, memorize, perform, and leave. But from the very beginning it became clear that that was not the case....

This week on the Docblog is a post from artist Jason Wang about the devising process of “20 Years Later.” See below and read more at docbloc.org.

“I’ve been working on “20 Years Later” for more than two years now. Every time I come back into this work, I realize that the person I am and the things I care about have changed. In many ways, 20YL” is this evolving time capsule of how I’ve come into my own voice, especially when faced against this big, intimidating conglomerate of things that is 9/11. What am I supposed to think about this? This thing that happened when I was 0 years old that changed everything? This thing that is the intersection of safety, immigration, incarceration, mental health etc, but was never truly broken down for what it is, and never fully passed on to my generation. Working on 20YL is like confronting this big, echoey empty space, where we confront the questions we’ve always had since our first 9/11. What are we supposed to say about this? What are we supposed to think about this? The answer: “Never forget”, but what does that even mean?”…
