Dance Films Kino Event

March 9, 2012 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 PM

Dance Films Kino: Open Studio with Sarah Best (10am – 2 pm)

Revolutions and Revelations Film Program & The Open Space Project (2-4 pm & 7-10 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.

Join us at the evening screening from 7-11 pm on Friday, March 9 for a special Dance Films Kino event with The Open Space Project (TOSP)featuring films and live, solo dance performances presented between films. The Open Space Project will present solo pieces by four choreographers, selecting artists who have participated in past TOSP events. Enjoy free mini red velvet cupcakes from Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique!
