Kinetic Cinema on Saturday, Reserve Your Tickets Now!

 

We are very excited to present Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre at our final Kinetic Cinema event of the season. Overcoming geographic and political barriers through the innovative use of Skype and video technology, this talented company was able to create an entire evening length work that eloquently examined the lives of people living under occupation. The evening will feature videos that inspired BOUND, and videos that documented the making and final performances of this stunning new work. Three company members will be present including Artistic Director Samar Haddad King live on Skype from Palestine. Don't miss it!

Dance Theatre in 2005. Her work has been commissioned by Configuration Dance, San Angelo Ballet, The Ailey School, and Hubbard Street 2 where she was a recipient of the National Choreography Competition in 2010. Samar has taught repertory, improvisation, and technique workshops throughout the U.S, Jordan, Palestine, Spain and England. She currently splits her time between New York City and Ramallah, where she works remotely with the company via Skype.

A highly collaborative dance theatre company, Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre works with artists across disciplines, cultural geographies and physical borders in order to forge stimulating and transformative experiences through dance. Inspired by world events as well as personal histories, YSDT offers an intimate glimpse into the countless faces of humanity using their athletic, off-balance and highly emotive choreography style. YSDT was founded in 2005 and is a not for profit organization based in New York City. YSDT has performed at venues throughout New York City, the U.S and abroad in the Middle East.

About Kinetic Cinema

 

Kinetic Cinema, is a regular screening series curated by invited guest artists who create evenings of films and videos that have been influential to their own work as artists. When artists are asked to reflect upon how the use of movement in film and media arts has influenced their own art, a plethora of new ideas, material, and avenues of exploration emerge. From cutting edge motion capture animation to Michael Jackson music videos, from Gene Kelly musicals to Kenneth Anger films, movement in media has made a great impact on the culture at large. Kinetic Cinema is dedicated to the recognition and appreciation for "moving" pictures. We have presented these evenings at Collective: Unconscious, Chez Bushwick, Interborough Repertory Theater, University Settlement, Launchpad, Green Space and The Tank in New York City, as well as at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia.
