Dance Films Kino: Open Studio with Sarah Best (10am – 2 pm)
Revolutions and Revelations Film Program (2-4 pm)
This screening is part of Dance Films Kino at the Art Center from March 4-10. Free Admission
While the word revolution pays tribute to the political context out of which the kino rose, in this program it is a pun referring to the physical act of spinning around an axis. Revelation refers to the act of arriving at a truth through observation and scientific experimentation, and through the translation of language into symbols and gestures. Films in this program are set in classrooms, at desks, and against chalkboards in a surreal style. Many of these explorations are humorous, revealing failures in communication while expressing the joy of arriving at an unexpected discovery.
Dance Films Kino Presents: Molly Shanahan (4-5 pm)
Choreographer Molly Shanahan, Artistic Director of the Chicago-based dance company Molly Shanahan / Mad Shak, discusses the importance of drawing in the process of creating new dance work.
