    The silhouetted figures in some of Silke Otto-Knapp’s paintings appear as bodies in motion, involved in a fluid choreography. These works evince the artist’s deep interest in dance, from the history of its development as an avant-garde form, to the settings and conventions that make it legible as a particular mode of creative expression. For this cinematic screening, she has chosen a selection of dances for film and video from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, all by innovative choreographers and their artistic collaborators. The program includes works by Yvonne Rainer, Charles Atlas and Merce Cunningham, and Babette Mangolte and Trisha Brown, followed by a discussion of the films with Otto-Knapp.
