A screening curated from the ADF Screendance Anthology Series in conjunction with a series of talks by Douglas Rosenberg.

This curated screening broadly interprets the conventions of public and private behavior through the lens of contemporary screendance, a hybrid form of dance and the moving image. With work from the United States and abroad, and covering a range of approaches to translating dance to the screen, the work addresses public and private displays of affection, conversations about gender and race, loss and intimacy. What do we say and do in public, in private? And how do our gestures inform how we express difference and create meaningful interactions? These are open questions. These content driven works for the screen offer a glimpse of the internal lives of performers set in existential, architectural and natural landscapes. Such layered works of dance and film offer the viewer a privileged view of ritual, of private performances in public space and of dance made for the intimate space of the screen.
