DANCE FILM; DECONSTRUCTED: OPENING NIGHT PROGRAM

September 30th

8pm

$10


September 30th is the opening night of Dance Film; Deconstructed, a five week Dance Film series co-curated by Lucy Kerr and Emily Smith. The series finds a home at BKSD and will feature programs presenting local and international artists, and programs in partnership with organizations Dance Films Association and Mono No Aware. Opening night will include drinks and refreshments, as well as film and performance work by Lucy Kerr, and the NY premiere of Emily Smith's short film "Plush"! Also stick around for the talk back which will reflect on a dialogue surrounding the experience of the body in performance and the body archived by a camera.



What is considered when we discuss the conditions for the genre of dance film? Do these genre conditions at times create expectations? At what point do expectations for art limit a creator’s vision?

In this series we are interested in examining conditions for the genre of dance film, destabilizing expectations for a genre, while creating an exciting program that explores the more mysterious and unexamined connections between a diverse group of artists and their work. We are interested in the various starting points and unique perspectives of artists who are creating work concerned with the body as it is captured, suspended, and archived by the camera. Everyone is situated in a body that moves, every film moves; movement is grounded in the persistence of the body in time, and cinema creates visceral experience and archive of this. With these conditions as the premise for curation, this program questions necessary conditions for a genre and fosters a dialogue around the potential of dance cinema to reflect on the body as a multifaceted social, political, existential, physical, temporal, and ephemeral vehicle of human experience.
