Kinetic Cinema: “Dance on Camera Extended”
Kinetic Cinema’s Dance on Camera Extended program last Saturday, February 4th, was an intimate yet rich event. After the screening viewers conversed on the diversity in the six films shown that evening, as well as the wide array of films at the Dance on Camera Festival the weekend before. Why do we yearn for an element of surprise in modern dance? How does a dance film weave in narrative and does it have to be a complete narrative? Is it important to know where a choreographer is from? Does it change our perspective? These were just some of the many questions debated.
Thank you to those, including dance film choreographer and director Jody Oberfelder, who came out to join and share their perspective. As she eloquently said it is conversations like these that make the events so worth it!
Come join us for our next Kinetic Cinema, The MerryMakers Make Movies featuring the vaudeville shenanigans and silent films of The MerryMakers at Fort Useless in Brooklyn on Sunday, February 26th at 7pm (doors open at 6:30)!
