Highlights from "After the Multiplex" Choreographed by Sarah Friedland
After the Multiplex
live dance performance, 2014
After the Multiplex considers the potential affects and residues of gestures from genre films that play out--dance--in the bodies and lives of viewers long after leaving a cinema multiplex. It imagines the space of the stage as a foyer of a cinema multiplex into which the viewing bodies of several films--a Western, a horror film, and a chick flick--flow after their screenings have ended.
Premiered April 3, 2014 in Ashamu Dance Studio, Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Additional performances at Waxworks @ Triskelion Arts, Brooklyn Arts Exchange and Greenspace Studio.
Dancers: Jenny Sevy, Jack Grabow, Anna Muselmann, Sarah Hsu, Lauren Behgam, Rory Macfarlane, John White and Nicolas Baird
Sound Design by Greg Nissan. Lighting Design by Isaac Berkowitz.
