The Cutting Room
This is a past event. Saturday, February 9 at 7:30pm 9:00pm
BodyVox Dance Center 1201 NW 17th Ave, Portland, OR 97209
"A playful, loving tribute to the wide world of cinema, this program -- first staged in 2012 -- provides a strong dose of the wit, inventiveness and stylistic flair that have hooked plenty of dance fans on BodyVox, a Portland company that’s long included video along with its engaging, accessible contemporary choreography." - Oregon Arts Watch
Building on its fruitful history of working in film, BodyVox will embark on expanding its unique brand of dance theater. The Cutting Room utilizes a mash up of cinematic scenes from classic films and cutting-edge independent productions. Action films will blend with comedy, drama and sci-fi to create an architecture for movement motifs that reinterpret the scenes, adding layers of dramatic context. This re-imagined production will journey to an intersection of nostalgia, performance, animation and innovation, where we will find movies and memories at the heart of our shared experience.
