IN THE STEPS OF TRISHA BROWN
Marie-Helene Rebois, France, 2016, 80 min.
One of Trisha Brown’s early signature pieces, “Glacial Decoy,” joins the repertory of the Paris Opera Ballet. The director’s artful camera captures the process of transmission body to body as Lisa Kraus, an original “Decoy” cast member, and Carolyn Lucas, Associate Artistic Director of the Trisha Brown company, demonstrate the unfamiliar vocabulary to a select group of Paris Opera dancers. The film plunges us into the spellbinding world of Trisha Brown, which remains as beautiful and mysterious as ever. Patricia Brown was born in Washington State, and in later years she often spoke of her debt to the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. In public conversation with choreographer Merce Cunningham (also from Washington State), she once remarked, "The rain forest was my first art class." Paricia Brown passed away March 18th at the age of 80. "Beautiful." - The New Yorker. "Necessary viewing." -Dance Magazine
WHEEL OF LIFE
Marcia Jarmel & Ken Schneider, USA 2015, 15 min.
El Oso, (“The Bear”) is one of the founders of Casino - the dance that launched salsa. As our guide, he travels Havana, sharing tales of his youth when the city’s clubs were “white only,” forcing him to dance on the streets. With changing times, a new global history begins. The film spins international relations onto the dance floor.
