EYE ON DANCE: Synthesizing Art and Technology with Myth and Ritual (1987)
Dec. 12, 2018, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Created by Celia Ipiotis and Jeff Bush, EYE ON DANCE (EOD) 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. This educational resource ceased production in 2004, however, EOD became the single largest primary source archive on dance. Bush and Ipiotis lead the archival project through the nonprofit organization ARC.
Meredith Monk and Ping Chong discuss their work in mixed media performance with EOD 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.
