Pilobolus and Shorts

January 28, 2012 @ 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm

Pilobolus and Shorts Program: 81 minutes Introductions by directors Philippe Baylaucq, Jeffrey Ruoff and Eye on Dance’s Celia Ipiotis.

TICKETS HERE Ora | Philippe Baylaucq Canada | 2011 | 15m Ora is the first film to use 3D thermal imaging, showcasing luminous bodies emerging from a single dividing cell. What ensues is akin to the first human steps—the discovery of the body and its relation to space. Choreographer José Navas and filmmaker Philippe Baylaucq create a new cinematic sensation.   Eye on Dance: Interview with Moses Pendleton and Jonathan Wolken Richard Sheridan | USA | 1987 | 28m Recorded in December 1986 at WNYC studios, this interview of Pilobolus charter members Moses Pentleton and Jonathan Wolken originally aired on February 6, 1987, marking their first joint appearance since their public breakup. Although conflicted over being reunited, they cover a wide array of topics together about the charter’s beginnings, including the influence of Alwin Nikolais and Murray Louis on their aesthetic, and their early experiments at Dartmouth with Allison Chase. Producer/Host Ipiotis manages to keep these irrepressibles under control, while exploring the deep partnership that helped lead to the creation of one of America’s leading contemporary dance companies. Still Moving: Pilobolus at 40 Jeffrey Ruoff | USA | 2012 | 38m In the summer of 2010, on the eve of their 40th anniversary, the modern dance company Pilobolus returned to the Hopkins Center for the Arts of Dartmouth College for a world premiere of Hapless Hooligan in Still Moving, a collaboration with graphic artist Art Spiegelman.  This documentary charts the lifecycle of this company, whose founders were students together at Dartmouth, and its evolution, transformation, and regeneration.
