March 9 - 11, 2018 - The University of Utah School of Dance, Department of Film & Media Arts, and Salt Lake Film Society are pleased to announce their first collaboration for the 2018 International Screendance Festival presenting the films of internationally renowned Belgian dance filmmaker and composer, Thierry De Mey.
Along with an opening night celebration and screenings of his work, De Mey will offer a two-day public workshop at the University of Utah.
“De Mey’s instinctive feel for movement guides his entire work, allowing him to tackle and integrate a variety of disciplines. The premise behind his musical and filmic writing is the desire for rhythm to be experienced in the body or bodies, revealing the musical meaning for the author, performer and audience.
De Mey composes a choreography on choreography; he produces a work of creation by sublimating that of its partners. The image naturally involves music and dance in his creative process, giving his art the sense of a three-strand plait. Everything shifts with De Mey, especially boundaries.
...From great vividness to nebulous atmospheres, each new opus from Thierry De Mey – be it film, composition or installation – represents a particular study of moving bodies. In their own way each one tells the magical story of time unfolding and man wrapped up in it."
