October 7 at 7:00pm: Entrance and Exit Strategies
Chloe Nagle and Kym McDaniel introduce themselves to the Minneapolis dance community in an evening of experimental film and improvisation scores. After developing debilitating chronic pain from a dance injury, McDaniel created the films entitled Exit Strategies. Over the course of five short films, she questions the intersection between trauma, chronic illness, and healing. Nagle’s improvisation score engages audience participation to explore individual and collective choice-making.
October 8 from 4:00-6:00pm: Dance Filmmaking Workshop
In this free workshop open to all ages and experience, participants collaborate in pairs to create a one-minute choreographic one-take video, highlighting the choreography of a body in motion. Final one-take projects will be screened at the beginning of The Language of Gesture! Participants also receive free entrance to the evening’s program. Register for workshop here.
October 8 at 7:00pm: The Language of Gesture
The Language of Gesture is a hybrid film/dance touring program premiering in Minneapolis for the first time. Curated by Kym McDaniel, the films within the program explore artists who use movement and gesture as a means of communication. Featured film and movement artists include Chanelle Lajoie, Terrance Houle, Martine Syms, Ariana Gerstein, A.M. Baggs, and Chloe Nagle.
October 14 at 7:00pm: Work-In-Progress Showing
Kym McDaniel and Chloe Nagle premiere an immersive, multimedia collaborative work investigating boundary setting and the body’s relationship with trauma. By creating dance and video improvisation structures with elements of unpredictability, the artists seek to translate how pain shapes interaction with ourselves, other people, and the environment.
