Modern Dance Festival at the Modern
Jul 06, 2012

Witness a living embodiment of the concepts behind portraiture and figurative art in a “happening” series of miniature dances and scenes designed to be performed in silence. CD/FW company members will explore the idea of the very act of creating a portrait or modeling for one. Drawing ideas from art history, photography, and personal histories, the dancers will bring their personal interpretations to this long-standing tradition of the “portrait” as a form of human record-keeping and storytelling through art.
