As a part of the Solar One Dance Program, Dancing in Public will begin with a reception featuring live performance created by Rebecca Brooks, with dancers Ursula Eagly and Emily Wexler. The evening will progress with dynamic screenings of several dance film shorts curated by Jennifer Edwards, Content Creator/Founder of JenEd Productions, and Christy Park, Executive Director of Dance Films Association. The pieces speak to various interpretations of dance and public space. Moving ‘bodies’ range from construction equipment to school children, and dancing is carried out in spaces ranging from deserts to grocery stores to Grand Central Station. Works by OK GO, JenEd Productions, David Hinton, and Anthony Atanasio – allow something for everyone yet promises to effortlessly carry viewers on a journey through shifting landscapes and genres. A Q&A with the choreographer and filmmakers will follow the screening.
