3D film reaches contemporary dance in this voyage into queer space, time, and bodies. Choreographers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener, both dancers who performed with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, collaborate with radical video artist Charles Atlas on this new project that uses technology to shape new ways of seeing. Part film, part live performance, this event begins as a 3D viewing experience of dances composed for camera and unfolds into live dance with real-time video mixed and projected live by Atlas, allowing for multiple perspectives of bodies in motion.

Presented in conjunction with Merce Cunningham: Common Time

Running time: approx. 2 hours, one intermission
