Movie: Dance Film Variation - Postmodern Dance

Image forum will screen a series of films associated to dance from September 19th. The series is called "Dance Film Variation," and covers a great number of pivotal dancers/choreographers of 20th century from Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, to William Forsythe. This seems to be an amazing opportunity to see dance films to which we usually don't have any access, and I am planning to catch as many films as possible during the screenings.

On Friday the 25th, I would like to check out films on capture Postmodern dance. Through the films, works of Yvonne Rainer, Meredith Monk, Lucinda Childs, Trisha Brown, and others will be presented. You may not be familiar with these dancers/choreographers, but they are pivotal figures for Postmodern movement. Those who are interested in contemporary art most likely will enjoy their works. They are some of important figures who contributed the establishment of performance art. Hope some of you will be interested in joining me to see the films.


Location: Image Forum (web site)
Time: 8:40 PM (The screenings Start at 9PM)
Admission Fee: ?1,300
