D.C.'s own acclaimed avant-garde performance company force/collision creates a dynamic blend of live action and video projection inspired by British gay rights activist and experimental filmmaker Derek Jarman. Written by Obie Award-winning playwright Caridad Svich and starring John Moletress, this new production explores Jarman's out-of-the-box life and work through the eyes of a young queer artist, and premieres on the 20th anniversary of Jarman's death from AIDS-related causes. A true visionary, Jarman was famed for his non-narrative films, including Tilda Swinton's film debut Caravaggio, along with The Last of England, The Tempest and Blue, as well as his music videos for artists like The Sex Pistols, The Smiths and Pet Shop Boys. This production is set to tour parts of the U.S. and the UK following this run. Learn More

I started out thinking--"Well, this is decidedly weird..."--but if you hung with it, it actually was quite moving. Helanius Wilkins drew you into his joy, angst, family structure and aspirations through a multi-media presentation involving dialogue, dance, video and audio. The long stretch where he is "sweating it out"--and eventually ends up nude on stage--is very tastefully done. His physical stamina was quite amazing. It was a pleasant surprise to stumble into the Atlas Intersections Festival.
