Meet Dr. Colleen Darnell, Egyptologist (and Vintage Fashion Aficionada.) @vintage_egyptologist

This Wednesday, October 20 at 7pm join Dr. Colleen Darnell online for a FREE virtual talk, Astronomy in Ancient Egypt (Mapping the Stars), as part of our newest collaboration with Hamptons Observatory. Register now at guildhall.org LINK IN BIO

Dr. Colleen Darnell, will discuss how astronomy influenced the belief system, art and life in ancient Egypt. From the earliest religious compositions in ancient Egypt, the Pyramid Texts, stars were an important part of their funerary beliefs. Not only did the king desire to join the sun god in his daily rising and setting, but he wanted to become one of the “imperishable ones,” the circumpolar stars. Astronomical observation was an important part of time keeping as well, with the heliacal rising of the star Sirius marking the beginning of the New Year. Drawings of constellations also form a part of the ceiling decoration of royal tombs of the New Kingdom.

Dr. Colleen Darnell is an Egyptologist who has published widely on pharaonic history, religion, and literature. Her most recent book, The Ancient Egyptian Netherworld Books (co-authored with her husband, John Darnell), was the first complete English translation of the hieroglyphic texts within the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings. In Imagining the Past: Historical Fiction in New Kingdom Egypt, Dr. Darnell identified four stories that belonged to a genre of historical fiction written by the ancient Egyptians themselves. In 2013, she curated an exhibit at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, Echoes of Egypt: Conjuring the Land of the Pharaohs, that examined Egyptian motifs from antiquity to the present.

We’re excited to welcome back The Met: Live in HD at Guild Hall this weekend with an encore screening of their production of Boris Godunov on Saturday, October 16. We suggest you take your love of opera to the next level with our companion program, Behind the Screen with Bel Canto Boot Camp: The Russian Chorus before the the screening. Complimentary coffee from our eAT Coffee Bar will be available for BCBC participants between the lecture and the screening. Learn more and register now at guildhall.org LINK IN BIO.

In collaboration with Guild Hall of East Hampton, BCBC explores this fall’s Met: Live in HD repertoire. Bel Canto Boot Camp aims to unite the rich traditions of the past with the exciting productions in today’s opera house.

Join BCBC co-founders Rachelle Jonck and Derrick Goff as they explore the rich tradition of Russian choral singing. In operas with political plots the chorus provides the social context in which the action takes place. Many voices together provide the voice of different nations, peoples, and social classes, sometimes wanting different outcomes. The chorus paints the picture of what the people believe, think, and want.

Join us this Saturday, October 2 from 7-8pm for a FREE live performance of Social Fabric: In the Public Square by interdisciplinary artist Andrea Cote and choreographer Ann Robideaux. Our Minikes Garden will be activated as a place to gather amid a video installation accompanied by live sound by Chris Jones.

Reservations are not required. Simply drop in over the course of their time in the garden!
Our eAT Coffee Bar will be open for drinks and refreshments.

The project explores how we embody personal and communal movement languages, through containment and connection in domestic and public spheres. The artists invited both professional dancers and recreational movers to explore movement inside six-foot square sheets delineated with geometric forms and cosmological patterns. As we occupy this present liminal zone, the artists create a place for visitors to inhabit that is at once intimate and communal.

Curated by Christina Mossiades Strassfield, Museum Director and Chief Curator.

Last night’s world premiere and site specific installation for the experimental film Apex Ape was a smashing success! Thanks to everyone who joined us in our Minkes Garden and congratulations to Brenna Leaver, Devon Leaver, and Julian Alvarez of our 2021 Community Artist-in-Residence program.

Apex Ape is an experimental film, and original creature that explores the changing American image through the lens of local legend. Inspired by interviews with East End residents and video archives from LTV, Apex Ape examines societal decay through impressionistic cinematography, treating our familiar landscape as a living organism. As viewers are confronted with the husks of our past, they may even catch sight of the illusive Ape, a cryptid-inspired manifestation of those left behind in a rapidly changing habitat.

Interns local to the Hamptons needed immediately at Braven Films. Interns at Braven Films are responsible for a range of duties spanning the production and development departments. As support for the development department, interns will complete coverage, the first step in the evaluation of incoming material, and help to compile source materials. Braven also encourages all of its interns to actively scout for new material, be it an article, book, play or film. In the production department, interns will assist with office management responsibilities including: rolling calls, researching travel options, booking flights and hotels, liaising with vendors, drafting email correspondence, creating spreadsheets, helping to organize expense reports, handling mail, making runs and organizing communications. Interns may also be called upon to help research new writers and directors, help generate lists of talent to reach out to as well as formulate pitch materials for the company and presentations. This is married with general responsibilities of proofreading and assistance in drafting correspondence. This will require them to present their coverage and research to department head. Due to the intimate nature of the company, interns are exposed to a great deal of educational information. A successful intern will learn the ins and outs of an independent production company over the course of their internship.
