The Big Screen Project will be screening a series of films as part of the Dance On Camera festival, January 27 from 6:00-8:30.
The Big Screen Project (BSP) “A Real Space Where People, Media, and Culture Connect” is an innovative venue for video, film, live and interactive content that sets a new standard for the urban, cinematic experience. Its 30 x 16.5 ft. HD format LED screen is on a wall outside in a public plaza adjacent to the Eventi, a new 54-story multi-use building on Sixth Avenue between 29th and 30th Street in New York City.
A total of three films by Quebec choreographers will be on view on Januray 27 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Noemie LaFrance, 2010; USA; 10 minutes. Eight dancers perch on seats fixed to a wall. Wrapped in beeswax and lanolin costumes that slowly melt away, the dancers become euphoric as if approaching the sun.
Joe Cobden, 2010; Canada; 2 minutes 24 seconds.
A young man and woman search for love, setting off a barroom brawl of balletic proportions.
Stephanie Decourteille, 2009; Canada; 4 minutes 49seconds.
The mad rush of a thoroughly modern woman who wants it all, who seeks to control her life; exhausted and out of breath, almost suffocates.
