Description

An evening of short dance films created between the 1940s and 1980s.

An evening of short dance films created between the 1940s and 1980s. These pieces are neither mere recordings of staged works, nor musical spectacles; instead, they are seen as a “mode to outstrip the everyday body,” an invitation to a kind of intimacy otherwise denied in the conventional performance space and the musical film. This program presents a variety of abstract as well as representational environments, in which the flitting camera and shifting dancer touch upon ideas of urbanism, science, nature and art.
