You are warmly welcome to VIDEOS FOR DANCERS,
an expanded cinema event focusing on the kinesthetic aspect of moving images.
Conceived by movement and performance artist Rania Khalil, Videos for Dancers emerges from a personal archive of previously unused video footage made in Egypt and Palestine during the years 2007-2012.
Videos for Dancers explores moving image kinesthetically using nature and object based images to expand the boundaries of what is traditionally considered dance. Looking through a post-human frame, it is interested in alternatives to representation and the possibility of viewing moving images through the body of the spectator, questioning the limits of who are dancers and what is dance.
The audience is invited to enjoy this relaxing abstract-cinema experience from large cushions on the floor.
Live sound by James Andean (Rank Ensemble) and Alejandro Olarte.
