ICA Artists’ Film Biennial 2014: Dance Transmissions

Selected by Vivian Ziherl + Q&A

Curator Vivian Ziherl has selected a programme of films for the Artists’ Film Biennial that deal with themes of dance in translation to moving image, about figures and gestures transposed across media. Yet their images bear the trace of cinema’s imprint within the bodies of modern dance itself. Unspoken texts tremble in the interference patterns between these media, perhaps issuing Cocteau’s enticement of a concealed drama, ‘the plague, the gold, the gongs’.

The screening is followed by a Q&A with artist Shahryar Nashat and programme curator Vivian Ziherl.


…Would anyone be interested to send us a review of the screeening for publication on this blog?!
