DANCE MOVIES 6

RPI’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center will continue its DANCE MOViES series with DANCE MOViES 6, a presentation of short dance films from dancers and choreographers in Western Europe and the United States. Works presented as part of the DANCE MOViES series are made for the screen, in order to combine elements of dance and the moving image. In this installment, accompanying press says, you’ll be able to “catch the predatory actions of people stuck in a stylish Spanish lobby, a solitary and obscure channel surf on a couch in Iceland, and elegant dance for two hands, a jog in the subways of Sweden.”

DANCE MOViES 6 will be presented by EMPAC (Heffner Alumni House, RPI, 1301 Peoples Ave., Troy) tonight (Thursday, Jan. 25) at 7:30 PM. Admission is free. For more information about this show, call 276-3921 or visit www.empac.rpi.edu.
