Dance Films Kino: The Spooky Action Ensemble vs. Mikey Rioux

March 14, 2012 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Dance Films Kino Presents: The Spooky Action Ensemble vs. Mikey Rioux (7-8 pm)

Musician-curator Dan Mohr assembled the The Spooky Action Ensemble especially for Dance Films Kino to improvise a live soundtrack to a silent dance film by Mikey Rioux. The film Richard Rioux July 4, 1926- July 11, 1995 (2007) documents a performance / ritual created as a wake for Rioux’s grandfather consisting of a dance done blindfolded on a drawing of Richard Rioux; Mikey drinks a shot of vodka every two minutes and as a result, the image of Rioux becomes more and more blurred. In addition to performing with the film, the ensemble – featuring Clifton Ingram (acoustic guitar), Jeff Kimmel (bass clarinet), Dan Mohr (voice/keyboards), and Katherine Young (bassoon) – will play a short musical set on their own. Check out this video preview.
