Dance on Camera Festival, co-presented by the Film Society and Dance Films Association, returns to the Walter Reade Theater for the 16th consecutive year with an exciting and diverse array of dance films, many of them premieres, ranging widely in subject and genre: from the refinement of ballet coaching to the intense individuality of club dancing. The 14 programs include peerless international artists such as Natalia Makarova and Robert Wilson; historic dance presenters and companies such as Jacob’s Pillow, the Joffrey Ballet, and Pilobolus; innovative choreographer Wayne McGregor; and the inspired director Clara van Gool.
Throughout the festival, the Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery in the lobby of the Walter Reade Theater (165 West 65th St.) will be home to the exhibit "30 Years of Eye on Dance," hosted and edited by Celia Ipiotis, which features interviews with astonishing subjects such as Alvin Ailey, Agnes de Mille, Lloyd Newson, Edward Villela, Glen Tetley, Jimmy Slyde, Doug Varone, Yvonne Rainer and Sara Rudner. The Gallery will also display a colorful photo exhibit by Herbert Migdoll, painter and official photographer for the Joffrey Ballet, entitled “Joffrey’s Carousel: Celebrating 50 Years of Dance.” More info >>
