Tone Glow Presents "Colordance"

Poster by Joshua Minsoo Kim.

Join us at the FMC Screening Room (475 Park Avenue South, 6th Floor) on Friday, May 26th, at 7pm, for an engaging program of films relating dance, color, and movement by Tone Glow's Joshua Minsoo Kim!


The films in “Colordance” play on the title’s double meaning: the first half of the program features cinedance works that showcase bold, choreographed pieces in vibrant colors, while the second half finds colorful specks dancing themselves. The goal is to have viewers witness how film can elevate an understanding of the body—both those onscreen and our own. Connected by their imaginative use of movement, color, and avant-garde film techniques, these works provide a sprawling look at film's prismatic, awe-inspiring capabilities.
