1-6pm, daily, until February 1 at Baryshnikov Arts Center at 37 Arts experience the master illusionist Billy Cowie's 3-D video installation. MEN IN THE WALL, a four-screen stereoscopic screen dance. 3D glasses allow the viewer to enter this multi-cultural world of four men, whose shared framed lives reveal a public quartet of private differences. Also shown are GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE and TANGO DE SOLEDAD. Award-winning Scottish video artist/composer Billy Cowie creates a delightfully amusing montage that beguiles as it inspires.
DFA’s annual Dance On Camera Festival celebrates the immediacy, energy, and mystery of dance as combined with the intimacy of film. Considered the “mother” of dance film festivals, DFA’s Festival presents a broad range of independent dance films, whether they be documentaries, shorts, narratives, or animation. The year round touring program has been a revenue source for dance filmmakers since 2000.
