Closing: Friday, August 2, 2013 from 7-10pm
Projector Projects presents Leg Room, a show of 11 videos that interpret dance, movement, and choreography within a set of assigned structural restrictions for the artists.
Leg Room is a group dance. Each artist was asked to make a short, no longer than one minute video that used their own body, or other people’s bodies, to choreograph or improvise their own interpretation of dance. The artists made a diverse array of videos. They embraced, or fought with, the semi-rigid structure to their creative advantage, producing a group of exciting and distinct work. The curators, assuming the role of lead choreographers, then projected the videos in a way that conveys a sense of struggle for individual space amongst a group of individuals. Within this structure, dance can then be seen as liberating or as a strict enforcement of deliberate and predetermined instructions. Exploring a way that primal dance impulses may exist in 2013, Leg Room is about freedom, containment, and projectors.
