Radio Macbeth takes place late at night in the guts of an abandoned theater. Actors circle restlessly around the common shared warmth of a rehearsal table, moving through the bullet of Shakespeare’s briefest and perhaps most magnetic play. Around them, in the perimeter of the space, the ghosts of all previous productions hover and encroach. The spirits of ambition, violence, fortune, fate, free will, hubris, vengeance, pride, indecision, paradox, the eternal male-female conflict and madness flicker and glow. The actors cling to the sanity of words while the chaos of history grows to be undeniably present with them in the room. It premiered at the Wexner Center for the Arts in February, 2007.
"ROTATING MIRROR" (2008)
"Rotating Mirror" is a 'film cycle' a collection of 14 short films created by Greg King
(member of the band rachel's). It was shot on Super 8 movie film every day for one
year, then layered and structured digitally. It's a purely visual/perceptual filmic journey,
a personal meditation on contemporary urban life in NYC and the city of Louisville, the
grandeur of the cosmos amidst the banality of daily life, the passage of time you name it.
There are a lot of themes coursing within its 49 minutes. It's scored by the music of
Rachel's (including unreleased tracks!), as well as solo projects by Jason Noble (as
Per Mission), and Rachel Grimes. Brady Vest of Hammerpress in Kansas City, MO
designed and printed a unique letterpress-printed sleeve to house the DVD, and it's
"OUR HOUSE" A NEW DOCUMENTARY BY GREG KING & DAVID TEAGUE
"OUR HOUSE" NOTES:
On Dan Taylor’s first day out of prison he had nowhere to go, and faced one of the most important choices of his life: to return to his past of drug addiction or to try for something better. Through a chance encounter the next day, he met Derek, a young Christian anarchist, who invited him to move into a new and very unusual community. Called “Our House,” it was an alternative to the impersonal shelter system, providing the homeless a safe place where everyone lived communally (and illegally) in an abandoned warehouse. Besides a roof and healthy food, Dan also found new friends, a spiritual haven in a makeshift ‘prayer tent,’ and the hope of putting his life back together. But when the building is set for demolition to make way for luxury condos, Dan and the other residents must confront the inevitable end of their community and what that will mean for their futures.
