Everyone celebrates Christmas a little differently. Some people like to throw ugly sweater parties; others like to blow past the season without giving it a second thought. A new campaign from retailer David Jones starring actress Cate Blanchett gives viewers a glimpse into what the holiday brings for people in Australia. You might find it’s not so different from your own celebrations.

The spot from TBWA in Sydney opens with Blanchett asking, “How do you Christmas?” As the spot unfolds, the viewer sees a whole host of ways people prepare for the holidays. It starts off pretty tame but quickly escalates to pretty out of control.

If the art world gave out Oscars, Cate Blanchett should win for her tour de force of starring roles in “Manifesto,” at the Park Avenue Armory. This toweringly ambitious, if occasionally pretentious film installation is the creation of Julian Rosefeldt, its writer, director and producer, a German artist drawn to complex narratives and fusions of real and cinematic space. His latest effort consists of 13 short films whose scripts are stitched together from nearly 50 manifestoes mostly by 20th-century artists, composers, architects and filmmakers. From Futurism to Pop Art and beyond, the writings layer knowledge, language and style into head-spinning densities. Some of these treatises were important turning points in art history; others are nearly forgotten.

The screens are the only light source, which guarantees a magical initial encounter. The first one focuses on a burning fuse. After all, manifestoes tend to be the inflammatory issue of angry, autocratic youth, usually male. They proliferated early in the last century (the first Futurist Manifesto dates from 1909), when artists increasingly saw themselves as rebels, out to transform their chosen media and society in the process. Logic fell out of favor, self-mythologizing did not. What better way to get attention than to gather together to announce the death of a previous art form and the birth of a new one.

Ms. Blanchett’s voice-over quotes the most famous sentence from Marx and Engels’s 1848 Communist Manifesto — “All that is solid melts into air” — then touches on the extremes of manifestoes from incendiary exhortation to laid-back parody. At one end is the manipulative Tristan Tzara, Dada’s founder, who begins adamantly, “To put out a manifesto you must want: ABC to fulminate against 1,2,3.” At the other, the gentle Philippe Soupault, a French Dadaist writer, is not looking for a fight: “I am writing a manifesto because I have nothing to say.”

The Match Factory has picked up international rights to Julian Rosefeldt’s “Manifesto,” which features Cate Blanchett, and screens in the Premieres section of the Sundance Film Festival.

“Manifesto” is the first feature-length film by the artist and filmmaker Rosefeldt, who is known for his elaborate film installations. He has adapted his multi-screen artwork of 13 films into one feature film.

The film combines artist manifestos from the early 20th to the start of the 21st century, including texts from Futurists and Dadaists to Pop Art and Fluxus, and from filmmakers like Lars von Trier and Jim Jarmusch. They are re-interpreted as “performative monologues” by Blanchett, who embodies 13 different roles, among them a choreographer, an elementary school teacher, a funeral speaker, a factory worker, a stockbroker, and a homeless person.

“The film reveals both the performative component and the political significance of these declarations, often written in youthful rage as a living call to action,” according to a statement. “[It asks whether] those passionate statements can actually be universally applicable in our contemporary society, and questions the role of the artist today.”

“I was blown away by the richness of images that Julian found for the different radical manifestos and the passionate performance of Cate Blanchett,” said Michael Weber, managing director of The Match Factory.

“Manifesto” is written, directed and produced by Rosefeldt, whose short films include “Lonely Planet” (2006) and “Asylum” (2001/2002).

As previously announced, The Match Factory has also acquired Tarik Saleh’s political thriller “The Nile Hilton Incident,” which will compete in the World Cinema Dramatic Section at Sundance. [Source]

The new drama The Present, starring two-time Oscar-winning actor Cate Blanchett, who makes her Broadway debut in Andrew Upton’s drama, which is based on Anton Chekhov’s Platonov, will play the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.

Richard Roxburgh will co-star in the production, which begins previews December 17 and opens January 8, 2017, for a limited run scheduled through March 19, 2017.

The Oscar-winner adores Wilton’s Music Hall, heeds advice from Dame Judi Dench and craves Fischer’s sausage and sauerkraut

Home is…

A work in progress. At the moment it’s somewhere between New York, where I’m doing an Ocean’s film, Sydney, where my husband is currently directing a play, and just outside London in the country.

Last play you saw?

We took our boys to see The Play That Goes Wrong in the West End and absolutely loved it. They peed their pants. Before that it was One Man, Two Guvnors, which was more elevated emotionally and psychologically for them.

Most romantic thing someone’s done for you?

Taken me out for lunch and then taken me out for dinner. On the same day.

Favourite shops?

Labour and Wait in Shoreditch. I love that it stocks utilitarian objects for everything from the garden to camping trips. I also love Daunt Books and Mint interiors in Kensington. Lina, the owner, has the most extraordinary eye and does interesting collaborations with artists and designers.

Over the years, various playwrights, among them Michael Frayn and David Hare, have taken a crack at adapting Platonov, Anton Chekhov’s youthful and unwieldy first play—which, running some six hours long and featuring more than a dozen characters, went unproduced and unpublished in his lifetime. When Andrew Upton decided to try his hand at wrestling the sprawling work into a coherent evening of theater, though, he had a secret weapon: He would be tailoring it for two performers with whom he had already worked closely, one of whom happened to be perhaps the finest actress of her generation, not to mention Upton’s wife of nearly 20 years—Cate Blanchett. That production, titled The Present—a smash last year at the Sydney Theatre Company—arrives on Broadway this month under the direction of the Irish stage and screen director John Crowley (Brooklyn), with an extraordinary ensemble cast, giving New York audiences a chance to see Blanchett reunited with her Uncle Vanya costar Richard Roxburgh. “Obviously I know Cate very well,” Upton says with a laugh. “And knowing that I could write it around her and Richard—they’re so beautiful together and have such chemistry onstage—allowed me to find the energy in the play and cut right to the heart of it.”

Upton has taken the elements of the play that would become hallmarks of Chekhov’s more mature work—the bucolic setting, the mixture of comedy and tragedy, the befuddled characters ruing their lives—and brought them into the late twentieth century, setting the action at a dacha outside post-perestroika Moscow against the rise of the oligarchs. The fortieth birthday of Anna Petrovna (Blanchett), a no-longer-wealthy widow at a crossroads, brings together an assortment of hapless old admirers and menacing new suitors, plus assorted wives and children, for a combustible weekend in the country. Chief among them is Mikhail Platonov (Roxburgh), a womanizing schoolteacher bitter about the unfulfilled promise of his life, including the unconsummated passion between him and Anna, who still loves him but is in the market for a rich husband. For Blanchett—whose past stage triumphs include such unhinged heroines as Hedda in Hedda Gabler, Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire, and Yelena in Uncle Vanya—the moody, quixotic Anna is just the kind of challenge she relishes.
