Building on its fruitful history of working in film, this spring BodyVox will embark on a new approach to its unique brand of dance theater. Utilizing 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. Including a new film from Mitchell Rose, this original production will journey to an intersection of nostalgia, performance and innovation, where we find movies and memories at the heart of our shared experiences.
