Here's a shot from tonight's Detroit Stages show featuring the [drohn] project.
Tonight at 7pm DETROIT STAGES: [drohn] Presented by Osman Khan + James Cornish [drohn] is a multi-channel video and multi-performer/instrumentalist performance which centers on a play off of multiple readings on the word “drone.” The performance juxtaposes imagery mixed and edited from military, industrial, and hobbyist drone footage as well as commissioned and live drone video feeds. The piece is choreographed by artist Osman Khan with a soundscape performed live by an ensemble led by composer and multi-instrumentalist James Cornish, The scenography was designed by Osman Khan and architectural designer Peter Halquist. https://www.facebook.com/events/1007287399366225/
Tonight at 8pm: After critically acclaimed runs in both France and parts of the African continent, the Quartiers Lointains film series premieres in Detroit, and features four outstanding film shorts from young French filmmakers: Yohann Kouam, Jean-Charles Mbotti Malolo, Zangro, and Alice Diop. These films move us, shake us, and amaze us by seizing a feeling distinctly French, but still universal. The evening will conclude with a Q&A with film series curator Clare Diao. https://www.facebook.com/events/1713395435612437/
