** A screening of Jack Smith’s notorious 1963 film Flaming Creatures - TRACT (the new electroacoustic project by Ela Orleans) performs a live soundtrack to her own edit of this (still) rarely shown film. A fever-dream swirl of pre-permissive society abandon, its strangeness and power are undiminished.
Jack Smith (1932-1989) made films and theatre which unequivocally resisted and upturned accepted conventions.
Andy Warhol said he was “the only person I would ever copy.� John Waters called him the “the only true underground film-maker� . “In the 60s Jack Smith and John Cage were the first Art Stars.� – Penny Arcade. “Some of the greatest shit I ever experienced.� – John Zorn
