On June 2, Kinetic Cinema will feature dance films selected by choreographer Kriota Willberg. The theme of the evening is The Worst of the Best, a tour of inspiringly bad dance films from the early 1900's to the present. Truly awful dance is powerful art. We react strongly to it as an audience, we relate our horrible experiences to our friends and warn them away from it, we laugh, we seethe, we remember it far longer than "good" dance, and possibly longer than "great" dance. Join us for film and discussion as we chase that ethereal muse, Badness, through the work of generations of dance film artists.KINETIC CINEMAMonday June 2, 7:30pm (and the first Monday of every month)$5 Admission (buy tix at the door)@ Collective:Unconscious279 Church Street (just south of White Street)New York, NY 10013Trains: 1 to Franklin; A, C, E to Canalhttp://weird.org/films.htm212.254.5277Kinetic Cinema at Collective:Unconscious explores the intersection of dance and the moving image both on screen and stage. Each month curator Anna Brady Nuse invites a special guest from the dance community to share the films and videos that have inspired or moved them. These could be films that feature dance, are kinetic-based, or have been influential on their work in some way. The guest curators come from a range of backgrounds as performers, choreographers, critics, and filmmakers.
