Dance Films Association Screening & Live Performance with Choreographer Rebecca Brooks
Solar One (East River just south of 23rd St. under FDR Drive, Manhattan)
Dance Films Association will host an evening of live and cinematic works focused on “Dancing in Public”. As a part of Solar One’s Green Energy Arts Festival, the evening will begin at 7:00 with a reception featuring live performance created by Rebecca Brooks, with dancers Ursula Eagly and Emily Wexler.
The evening will feature a dynamic screening of several dance film shorts curated by Jennifer Edwards, Content Creator and Founder of JenEd Productions, and Christy Park, Executive Director of Dance Films Association. The focus was to find pieces that speak to various interpretations of dance and public space. Moving ‘bodies’ range from construction equipment to school children, and their dancing is carried out in spaces ranging from deserts to grocery stores to Grand Central Station.
This is an event – with works by OK GO, JenEd Productions, David Hinton, and Anthony Atanasio – that holds something for everyone yet promises to carry viewers on a journey through shifting landscapes and genres effortlessly. A Q&A with the choreographer and filmmakers will follow the screening.
