Not just dance and not just film, the new field of dance film brings the two disciplines together. Using the magic of the camera to capture the human body, these short works transport dance to worlds outside the confines of the theatre, into the fantasy and animation that only the screen can bring alive.
This screening series will feature a specially-curated showcase of locally-produced dance films, as well as selections from Forward Motion, a collection of outstanding British screen dance works co-produced by the British Council.
Forward Motion: 7-8pm Friday 31 May, 1.30-2.30pm Sunday 2 June
Malaysian Dance Films: 7-8pm Saturday 1 June
Lobby, Panggung Bandaraya, corner of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Tun Perak, 50100 Kuala Lumpur.
