Dance Event

Kinodance Company


One of Dance Magazine's "25 to Watch," Kinodance employs a passion for kinetic arts, experimentation, and a strong belief in interdisciplinary collaborations. Using stage performances, installations, and films, the company creates immersive experiences that merge the boundaries between dance, cinema, and visual art.

In addition to their February 17 performance, Kinodance will present a lecture on Choreographing Cinema on Thursday, February 18, at 7pm in the Putnam Lecture Hall.

Choreographing Cinema
is a historic overview of choreography in cinema. Journeying through the history of cinema from early silent films to music videos, we will discuss choreography on screen. We will look at current and historic tendencies, attitudes and approaches of the film world to dance. We will address how looking at cinema through the choreographic lens could bridge between the film and dance worlds and demonstrate the tremendous (yet to be discovered) potential of dance film collaborations.

Filmmakers, choreographers, dancers and everybody interested in dance film collaborations are invited to attend.

The lecture will be followed by a film screening of NORA (an art film on Zimbabwean-born dancer Nora Chipuamire).

Funding provided in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) as part of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) regional touring program. NEFA receives major support from NEA with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
