DANCE MOViES Commission

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Premieres of five commissioned works where dance and video combine: in one, three street kids in the streets of Rio seem to juggle air; in another, a dancer and an incandescent hoop rotate in a black void; and in another, multiple video screens installed side by side layer film samples and a dancer’s gestures to create counterpoints of movement and image. Chosen by an international panel at EMPAC, these works represent the third round of the DANCE MOViES Commission program.

The screenings will be immediately followed by a panel discussion including the filmmakers and curator.
