Philadelphia Dance Projects – Virtual – Informance with Amalia Colon-Nava
December 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dance artist Amalia Colón-Nava will conclude PDP’s Fall virtual series of Informances with her presentation: “Taking advantage of the vantage point: two films.”
Taking advantage of the vantage points available with a camera and giving very specific body parts a chance at center stage, the two films are vastly different in style and reflect a shift in artistic growth, intent and interest over time. However, there is the throughline of playing with one or two body parts as the protagonist and star of the show, and letting that guide the direction of the film. Viewers will watch the films together and the artists will guide audience through a discussion that covers some of the behind the scenes of producing, editing, choreographing, and designing the sound scores for these films and open a discussion for analysis, questions and critique of the work.
