Lenore Malen: Scenes From Paradise
Lenore Malen will direct a live performance excerpted from Scenes From Paradise, her upcoming movie featuring featuring two characters and six sheep. Adam and Eve, like time travelers, find themselves on a sheep farm and learn to be human. Naked and unashamed, with a life span of an hour, they interact with the sheep and the audience. Featuring actress Jessica Weinstein, mime Blake Haberman, and the herd from Dan Devine's Sheep Farm (a permanent installation in the Fields). The event will end with a reception in the Benenson Visitors Center.
