Kinetic Cinema: Liquid Films, Curated by Amy Greenfield
A co-presentation of Pentacles Movement Media and The Tank.
Films include: "Nymph Of the Waves", by American Mutoscope and Biograph, one of the first dance films ever made, superimposes the dancer with the ocean waves, as well as Amy Greenfield's primal "Tides", has Greenfield and camera operator, Hilary Harris, both braving the ocean tides in their symbiotic camera dance. Kenneth Anger's restored Eaux D'Artifice", with his "Water Witch" in the Trevi fountain, is one of the great classics of the American avant-garde, and Ben Dolphin's "Arising" has us flying joyfully with his dancers inside a waterfall, blurring an artificial screen world and the natural world. Jodi Kaplan's "Immersion", Jody Oberfelder's "Rapt", Elle Burchill's "Mother Daughter and Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof's "Pulsion" all made recently, are original, daring, entrancing, lyrically beautiful new cine-dances envisioning women moving in real underwater worlds.
ABOUT KINETIC CINEMA
Kinetic Cinema is a co-presentation of The Tank and Pentacle's Movement Media project, and happens on the second Wednesday of each month. This screening series explores the intersection of dance and the moving image. For each screening Anna Brady Nuse, Pentacle's director of Movement Media, invites a different guest artist from the fields of dance and media arts to share a selection of films and videos that have inspired them. These could be works for screen that feature dance, are kinetic-based, or have been influential on their work in some way. The guest curators come from a range of backgrounds as performers, choreographers, critics, video artists, and film-makers.
Coming up next: Wed DEC 9th 7:30 pm Choreographer and dance-filmmaker Jody Oberfelder presents I TUBE THEY TUBE WE ALL TUBE FOR YOUTUBE exploring the phenomenon of phenomenon of viral videos on YouTube.
