Screening Room, or, The Return of Andrea Kleine (as revealed through a re-enactment of a 1977 television program about a ‘long and baffling’ film by Yvonne Rainer.)

January 16, 2016. 1:00pm. Live Artery at New York Live Arts.

December 3-6, 2014. The Chocolate Factory Theater, NY.

ak soloAndrea Kleine, an ‘enigmatic and eccentric’ (the New York Times), ‘brainy, allusive Downtown artist’ (Village Voice), whose work is ‘something like genius’ (ArtVoice), has been absent from the stage for a decade. She resurfaces as the choreographer/filmmaker Yvonne Rainer and Rainer’s lion-tamer-turned-dancer character ‘Kristina,’ transforming a verbatim talk show interview into an imaginary film recounting Kleine’s journey of disappearance.”



Performed by Andrea Kleine, Anya Liftig, Bobby Previte, Michael Kammers, Paul Langland, Vicky Shick. Original score by Bobby Previte. Lighting Design by David Overcamp. Originally commissioned by The Chocolate Factory Theater with additional support from the New York State Council on the Arts Composer Commissions, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Fund, Spaceworks, and Art of Franza, Inc.
