New York cinema lovers, lets dance!
Though it may seem counterintuitive, dance as an artform may be more analogous to cinema than theater–in their attention to physical and visual gesture, both forms derive much of their power in employing kinetic energy to transmit meaning that transcends words. You can be the judge this week as the Film Society unveils it’s popular “Dance on Camera” series. This year’s selections range from specially commissioned shorts to a new dance film from India; from Russian ballerinas to Busby Berkeley; and from documentaries on dance virtuosos Antonio Gades and Jerome Robbins to a rare screening of a 1918 silent film classic. Special events are too numerous to list here. Suffice to say an action-packed five days of dance will be leaping off the screen at the Walter Reade beginning tonight at 6:15!
