Figs in Motion
Approximately 70 minutes with no intermission.
This program of Canadian short dance films and videos displays the creativity and diversity to be found in screen-based choreography. Going beyond merely photographing the act of dancing, these films fuse the camera and cinematic language with dance to create a distinct hybrid form. From documentary to animation to experimentation, Frame Lines showcases a wide variety of unique cinematic approaches to contemporary dance.
