Spirited VIII RISE - Call for Collaborators by Spirited Magazine

rise

An ember in ash, Dystopia: Spirited VII vanquished us and left us to flicker and fade in a dust-grey heap. 

There is, however, hope in embers. Gather enough and feed them oxygen, they turn flame and blaze, once again able to devour all they meet. 

Rise: Spirited VIII is our rebirth; our cleansing; our floating up from our own ashes refined and clear.

We are looking for collaborators, photographers, painters, writers, sculptors, graphic designers, fashion designers, illustrators, and all other creative types to "RISE" with us.

Submit to spiritedmagazine@gmail.com 

Deadline for submissions is July 31st, 2013.

We can't wait to Rise with you. 

Spirited VII Dystopia Live Installation 03.16.13 by Spirited Magazine

DYSTOPIAFLYER.jpg

We are pleased to announce the seventh issue with a live installation that will feature artists and collaborators whose works are included in the “Dystopia” Issue, Winter 2013. 

THE ISSUE: We’ve assembled a long-form and picturesque collection comprised of and by our heroes and friends who have visually explored losing track of the moment. That moment in which every human’s strength becomes his weakness, on which his weakness becomes his strength. They all made a contribution for you. Every contribution has its own story, independent from the others, and still it seems as if an invisible thread connects them all.

Play Projection Outtakes by Spirited Magazine

PROJECTION / A NEW PLAY BY ALLISON VANOUSE 2-Day PERFORMANCE
Hosted by 549 Columbus ave, Boston / Creative Co-op Space
May 26th and 27th

Projection

A new play by Allison Vanouse puts the noir mode into a claustrophobic interior space, deconstructing and reconstructing its parameters until they brush the limit of the form. Sam (Dimitri Papadimitriou) is a P.I. without a case, haunted by images, his mind saturated with the cinematic. PROJECTION is a world of his creation, where ghosts of the 1940s and the ever-present hum of a movie projector build a tenuous dreamscape. To this heady cocktail — half David Lynch, half Dashiell Hammett, a dash of the existential — Spirited Magazine’s production introduces the hurricane-force of a femme fatale (played with aplomb by Alix Mauclere). Sitting on the edge of theatrical and performance traditions, PROJECTION is a basement-show chamber-play that consistently performs weird alchemy: two lovers – thirty minutes — one movie — one dirty mattress — a play of images between the filmic and theatrical — live scoring (by Jonathan Sibha) worthy of Eraserhead—and a strangely resonant takeaway that sits squarely between gritty realism and dreams. The play also restores the original ending of Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon. If you want to see just how, check out excerpts from the script in Noir Generation.
