Domino toppling weekend at Latchis, BMAC
BRATTLEBORO - Dominoes will dominate downtown for one weekend, with two events celebrating the art and science of domino toppling.
First, domino toppling sensation Lily Hevesh will attend the screening of the documentary film, “Lily Topples the World,” about her rise as an internationally recognized domino artist, on Saturday, October 16, at 7 pm, at the Latchis Theatre. Directed by Jeremy Workman, the film won the Grand Jury Award at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival and the Audience Award at the 2021 San Francisco International Film Festival. Hevesh and Workman will participate in a Q&A session following the film. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children.
On Sunday, October 17, at 5:30 pm, Hevesh will come to BMAC for the 14th annual Domino Toppling Extravaganza. Tickets for in-person viewing are available in advance at brattleboromuseum.org or at the door. Doors open at 5 pm. Free event parking is available at 28 Vernon Street. No backpacks or strollers are allowed at the event and all audience members must wear masks. The event will also be livestreamed via Facebook Live starting at 5:15 pm. Hevesh and three other domino artists - Shane O’Brien, Chris Wright, and Nathan Heck - will arrive in Brattleboro 48 hours ahead of the toppling to begin setting up the spectacle. The floor of BMAC’s Wolf Kahn & Emily Mason Gallery will be filled with an elaborate pattern of tens of thousands of dominoes.
Hevesh is the world’s only full-time, professional domino artist and has her own brand of dominoes, H5 Domino Creations. For more information call (802) 257-0124 or visit www.brattleboromuseum.org.
