One of the earliest ways Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s EMPAC made its mark in the arts world—even before EMPAC’s imposing hillside structure was completed—was with their DANCE MOViES commissions. Filmmakers from all over the world have participated in the creation of films developed at and/or commissioned by RPI’s arts juggernaut; the latest five dance films will be presented Saturday night.
These are Seline Baumgartner’s Nothing Else; Orit Ben-Shitrit’s Ward of the Feral Horses; chameckilerner’s ESKASIZER & Samba #2; Dana Gingras’ Chainreaction; and Marianne Kim’s Lost & Found.
DANCE MOViES will be presented Saturday (Jan. 31) at 7 PM in the EMPAC Theater (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy). Admission is free, but for info and reservations call 276-3921.
