  • Rex Sikes Movie Beat chats with actor Clint Howard

    in Film

    Clint Howard, actor, has a career spanning over fifty years,and over two hundred film and TV shows.  He has spent his entire life entertaining us in a variety of interesting and unique roles. From childhood roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Star Trek to of course, the hit TV Show Gentle Ben, Clint was a well recognized personality by the time he was ten.Making the transition from juvenile to adult actor was no problem for Clint. Cult classic Rock N Roll High School and horror genre Evilspeak showed as an adult he could be versatile and affective. Whether Clint works in comedy classics like Waterboy, the Austin Powers film series or a hilarious episode of Seinfeld, he comfortably slides into dramatic roles such as Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon and Alabama Moon. Recently, Clint can be seen in the campy, B Horror title, Bloodrayne Third Reich and Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem. He's also put on the producing hat, teaming with long time colleague Gavin Grazer on an indie comedy. Born and raised in Burbank, California, Clint has always balanced his professional career with a 'hometown' oriented life. He continues to live with his wife Melanie in Burbank and stay active in the community. Stay tuned to Rex Sikes Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at rexsikes.com

    Nadine Sures: L'Armoire des Ombres, What It Means To Be a Female Actor in Beirut

    in Performing Arts

    Nadine Sures is a transdisciplinary theatre artist originally from Canada, currently living in Beirut, Lebanon. Nadine has worked professionally and internationally as a performer, director, producer and teacher for the last 20 years. Recipient of the Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award, Nadine established herself as a performance artist in Montreal and Beirut by showcasing her own creations across Canada, Europe and the Middle-East.

    When asked about her current work, L’Armoire des Om’bres, Nadine says, “When I first read Hyam Yared’s text L'armoire des ombres, I was touched by the rawness and truthful passion, the words like a dance inviting me to move closer to my core.”  

    L’armoire des ombres explores the depths of the shadow realm in psychology, in parallel to the fragile state of women’s rights in the Middle East. Nadine has been living and working in Beirut, Lebanon for 5 years now: a city where the female actor has little chance of making a career for herself and where women still negotiate with archaic laws on marriage and civil liberties. The text spoke to her own personal experience there.

    Set in Beirut, the performance tells the story of an actor, desperate to pay her rent, who auditions for the lead part in a play. Forced to leave her shadow at the coat check for the audition and subsequent performances, she gets the part yet never meets the director, who remains invisible. On stage, a single wardrobe containing only shadows, unveils a series of narratives that the actor communicates to growing audiences. She eventually discovers that the shadows of the prostitute, mother, lesbian lover, abused wife, and homeless woman are all an integrative part of her psyche. Daily she walks through crowds of protesters who pressure her to take on their cause, and as the masses outside begin to charge the theatre entrance, the actor escapes by disappearing into the wardrobe.
