Sundays on Broadway and guest curator Jon Kinzel present and evening of discussion and performance with Allegra Fuller Snyder and Laurel Atwell.
Renowned dance ethnologist Allegra Fuller Snyder, professor emerita of dance and former director of the pioneering graduate program in dance ethnology at UCLA, will share dance on film featuring in-depth perspectives and a cultural scope of her chosen subjects, ranging from ancient to modern forms of dance. Her firm commitment to the important and unique relationship that exists between film and dance, and now other visual media, was crystallized through her work with the International Film Foundation in New York City (1949–1951). She was one of the few people in the field of dance to recognize the critical importance of film to all aspects of dance. Her research merges history, politics, and aesthetics. The disciplined, complex, and expressive embodied practice of dancing is brought into focus through the medium of film.
Laurel Atwell will share part of her latest work Little Slingshot. Using exercises developed for astral projection and communicating with ESP, the performance is an attempt to understand what it means to measure.
