Screening | Eye on Dance: Synthesizing Art and Technology with Myth and Ritual (1987)


Eye on Dance was a television series launched in 1981 to deepen the public’s understanding of the full spectrum of dance forms that intersect to produce American dance. An in-depth interview based series, the socially and historically framed discussions were illuminated through performance excerpts. Meredith Monk and Ping Chong discuss their work in mixed media performance with moderator Celia Ipiotis. The conversation taps into their association, common interests, and collaboration; and themes—like alienation—tackled in their works. Performance excerpts include segments of their famed 1982 film Paris; excerpts from Monk’s Break and Quarry; Chong’s Kindness; and their joint work The Games. Celia Ipiotis will be joined by panelists Art Bridgman, Daniel Madoff, and Myrna Packer for this live screening.

Screening | Dance on Film: 200 Years of Petipa, the Man Who Created The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty


In celebration of the bicentennial of Marius Petipa’s birth, The New York Times’ Chief Dance Critic Alastair Macaulay will conclude his two-part exploration into the work of this master choreographer. Marius Ivanovich Petipa, born Victor Marius Alphonse Petipa (1818 – 1910), was a French and Russian ballet dancer, pedagogue and choreographer. Petipa is considered to be one of the most influential ballet masters and choreographers in ballet history. Marius Petipa is noted for his long career as Premier maître de ballet (First Ballet Master) of the St. Petersburg Imperial Theatres, a position he held from 1871 until 1903. Petipa created over fifty ballets, some of which have survived in versions either faithful to, inspired by, or reconstructed from the original. Among these works, he is most known for The Pharaoh's Daughter (1862); Don Quixote (1869); La Bayadère (1877);  The Sleeping Beauty (1890); The Nutcracker (likely choreographed by Lev Ivanov, perhaps with Petipa's counsel and instruction) (1892); Raymonda (1898). Petipa revived a substantial number of works created by other choreographers. Many of these revivals would go on to become the definitive editions on which all subsequent productions would be based. The most famous of these revivals were Le Corsaire, Giselle, La Esmeralda, Coppélia, and Swan Lake (with Lev Ivanov).

Film | Your Day Is My Night: a hybrid documentary


Blending autobiographical monologues, intimate conversations, and staged performances, Lynne Sachs’ Your Day Is My Night documents the lives of Chinese immigrants sharing a “shift-bed” apartment in the heart of New York City’s Chinatown, offering a deeply felt portrait of the Asian-American immigrant experience.  Initially documented in Jacob Riis' late 19th century photographs, a shift-bed is a bed that is shared or rented by people who are neither in the same family nor in a relationship. Since the advent of tenement housing in the Lower East Side, working class people have shared beds, making such spaces a definable and fundamental part of immigrant life. Over a century later, the shift-bed remains a necessity for many, triggered by socio-economic barriers embedded within the urban experience.
