Modotti, a new play by Wendy Beckett, traces the life and spirit of the times of Tina Modotti, photographer and political operative, during the first half of the twentieth century. The play explores the tension between a life in art and commitment to political change, and uses the relationship between Modotti and Edward Weston, her lover and photographic "mentor", as the device. Edward Weston (Jack Gwaltney) is portrayed as seeking abstraction and the idealization of form and light in his images, while Modotti (Alysia Reiner) speaks as the representative of using art as a political weapon to enhance and encourage social change, thus creating the "art/reality" conundrum that, among other matters physical and intellectual, drive the couple apart.

(GB) microSDHC flash memory cards to major phone manufacturers for testing and

video. For example, it will be able to store a combination of 1,500 songs, 3,600

support 4GB to 32GB capacities. The specification was developed by the SD Association,

minimum sustained data transfer speed. These cards adhere to the SD Speed Class
