THE REHEARSAL

2015-2016 / 11:15 / 16mm B&W Film

Inspired by the experimental films of the 1930’s Parisian avant-garde and the work of Maya Deren, The Rehearsal documents a musical gathering which is interrupted by a series of surreal encounters. Purporting to be made from found historical footage, the film is a response to Sawyer’s project The Natalie Brettschneider Archive, a feminist critique of art historical conventions. Natalie Brettschneider, the protagonist, is a stand-in for all of the female artists who have slipped through the gaps of history only to languish in obscurity, gain notoriety as models of more famous males artists, or perhaps, be ‘rediscovered’ in a provocative and funny 16mm film.
