“What is considered when we discuss the conditions for the genre of dance film? Do conditions for a genre 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' and destabilizing expectations for a genre, while devising 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 creating work concerned with the body as it is captured, suspended, and archived by the camera. Every person has a body that moves, every film moves; movement is grounded in the persistence of the body in time, and cinema creates a visceral experience and archive of this. With these conditions as the premise for curation, this program is interested in questioning conditions for a genre and fostering a dialogue around the potential of dance cinema to reflect on the body as a multifaceted social, political, existential, physical, and ephemeral vehicle of human experience."
