Screen Dances: Films by Nadia Oussenko


CRITIC'S PICK! - Time Out Chicago (Dance Section)
Filmmaker In Person!
Friday, September 23, 2011 - 8:00pm
Location: 
Chicago Filmmakers

Program repeats Saturday, September 24 at 8pm.

Chicago-based artist Nadia Oussenko has been combining choreography and filmmaking into “screen dances” since 2004. Her pieces invite the viewer to share a physical experience with dancers onscreen through camera movement and unique locations (bus stops, bridges, beaches) that compliment the choreography in surprising ways. The program will include three premieres: Nothing to See/Hear (World premiere), a duet that explores the intricate workings of an unraveling relationship; Revised and Revisited (Chicago premiere), choreographed by Chicago artist Erica Mott, where she traces the memory of her ancestry; and Keep it Real (World premiere), a tongue-in-cheek duet where dancers find space behind an abandoned building to bust a move. Also on the bill are On Falling. . . (2009), a series of vignettes about surrender, Connect 4 (2006), where four dancers work within four spaces of a warehouse to connect a single movement phrase, and Up There (2006), a tense solo piece set in a bar about breaking social decorum. (2006 – 2011, 52 min., video)

Nadia will be present for Q&A after the screening.
