Art in Unexpected Places

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

The third annual Double Take Fringe Festival romps through a variety of underused spaces and architectural curiosities this weekend in downtown Greenfield. The eight mini-productions range from a Chekhov farce to a Tennessee Williams parody, from improvisational clowning to the connection between the H-bomb and the Fender Stratocaster, from the Jim Crow lunch counter to the Nazi dawn, as well as an interdisciplinary “mythic odyssey,” the mystery of a dead surfer and an immersive kids’ piece that brings an epistolary novel to life. Each show performs multiple times over the two-day fest, which coincides with the annual WORD Festival (humanerrorpublishing.com) and a marathon of one-minute films (oneminutefestgreenfield.org).

Oct. 18-19, $10 one night, $15 weekend, tickets and info at double-take.org.

The film "My Week with Marilyn" charts a week in the life of one man, Colin Clark, who was an assistant director on a movie Monroe was filming in London with Laurence Olivier called "The Prince and the Showgirl." Clark forms an extraordinary relationship with Monroe during the filming, and Curtis' movie is based on his experience, as told in Clark's memoirs of the experience.
