Still: Malinda Allen “Other Games”
Kinetic Cinema explores the intersection of dance and the moving image both on screen and stage. Each month curator Anna Brady Nuse invites a special guest from the dance community to share the films and videos that have inspired or moved them. These could be films that feature dance, are kinetic-based, or have been influential on their work in some way. The guest curators come from a range of backgrounds as performers, choreographers, critics, and filmmakers. Upcoming guests include Malinda Allen (March 3rd), Jonah Bokaer (April 7th), Levi Gonzalez (May 5th), and Kriota Willberg (June 2nd).
Malinda Allen creates works of body-based theater with collaborators including HBO Def Jam artist Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai, and poet/violinist Alicia Jo Rabins from the punk rock Klezmer band, Golem. She’s been presented at Dance Theater Workshop’s Fresh Track Series, Moving Men and Chez Bushwick at Dixon Place, the East Village HOWL Festival at PS 122, and the Movement Research at the Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance, among others.
