part of the 12th annual Modern Dance Festival at The Modern
Catch the local premieres of short films from the 2015 Dance On Camera festival of New York City. This 35-minute program features four family-friendly films:
Escualo (Martin & Facundo Lombard, USA, 2014; 4:09) - A "dance scene" set to music by Astor Piazzolla and performed by the Lombard Twins.
Det Skal Danses Vaek (Maia Elisabeth Sorensen, Denmark, 2014; 4:44) - A high-school boy's infatuation with dance erupts into a full-scale "performance" in which his classmates become a chorus of movers who catch the fever.
Ghost Line (Shona Masarin & Cori Olinghouse, USA, 2013, 15:14) - An experimental film merging the rhythmic and comedic timings of silent film and vaudeville with the absurdist impulses of Dada and Surrealism in a kinetic spectacle of light and shadow.
Vanishing Points (Marites Carino, Canada, 2014; 8:59) - Like two molecules unknowingly affecting each other in space and briefly crossing paths, conceptual hip-hop dancers collide and share fleeting moments of intimate synchronicity on the streets of Montreal.
