MOTION STATE DANCE FILM SERIES & FESTIVAL LAUNCH PARTY

Thu, Jan 16 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm Free

“Join us for an evening of short dance films, a celebration of our new name, and a launch party for the upcoming Motion State Dance Festival.

Doors open at 6pm; films at 7pm. Come early and stay late to raise a glass to the new Motion State Dance Festival! Tickets are free; donations encouraged.

The Motion State Dance Film Series (formerly known as Kicking & Screening) is the only year-long, traveling short film festival in New England devoted to showcasing the diversity of contemporary creative voices exploring the medium of choreography for the camera. By taking the festival “on the road” and into non-traditional film venues, such as art galleries, music halls, performing arts theaters, and university classrooms, the Motion State Dance Film Series seeks to expose the films and filmmakers to new audiences. Every screening is followed by a public Q & A with the curators. 2019-2020 season films include:

  • Rebecca McGowan & Jackie O’Reily: From the Floor (USA)

  • Matthieu Maunier-Rossi: T.I.A. (THIS is Africa) (France)

  • Marta Renzi: Tumult (USA)

  • Takeshi Matsumoto: We Belong (Japan)

  • Shon Kim: BOOKANIMA (Korea)

  • Emma Cianchi: Hic et Nunc “Here and Now” (Italy)

  • Sarah Elgart: Ghost Story (USA)

  • Feng Jiang: Organ Play (Taiwan)

The inaugural Motion State Dance Festival, coming March 5-7, 2020, will feature performances from world-famous contemporary dance artists and local favorites including Bebe Miller, Miguel Gutierrez, Heidi Henderson, Orlando Hernández and many more.”
