New film traces dance career of Ze'eva Cohen, November 10

I think Anna Sokolow saw in me a certain naïveté, a certain rawness. She saw that I could give myself completely to a role and become the role, and she could see that I would go with her all the way.
--Ze'eva Cohen
Award-winning television/video editor Sharon Kaufman makes her directorial debut with the documentary, Ze’eva Cohen: Creating A Life In Dance, to be screened next month at Downtown Community Television Center.

A half-hour portrait of the Yemeni-Israeli modern dancer and educator, the film traces the development of Cohen's distinct sensibility and career with many vintage samples of her lyrical, elemental performances and choreography. A gorgeous dancer with--as dance historian Elizabeth Kendall calls it--a "touch of the raucous," Cohen serves as a model of surviving and thriving as an independent artist.

Free screening: 
November 10, 6:30pm

Downtown Community Television Center (DCTV)
87 Lafayette Street, Manhattan

I saw the film at a private screening. It is rich and beautifully crafted.
