Post-Screening Q&A with David Bolger
Mon 13 May
This year’s Dance on Film sees a carefully curated programme of six short films that includes a selection of Light Moves Festival 2018 Award Winners, some recent French releases, and the premiere of CoisCéim’s How to Sink a Paper Boat, with director David Bolger in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
(France, 2018) 22’42’’
An encounter between dancers and physically disabled children, who get to explore unusual movements and new perceptions using virtual-reality glasses.
Time Reversal Symmetry
(Canada, 2018) 08’00’’
Light Moves Prize for Outstanding Overall Work
In Time Reversal Symmetry, the artist uses dance, movement and media to visually exemplify how neutrinos (very small pieces of matter) change ‘flavour’ as they travel.
(UK, 2018) 15’32’’
Light Moves Innovative Use of Sound Award
Entangled responds to Matthew Whiteside’s score in three movements, each a response to a different facet of the work relating to physicist John Stewart Bell.
(UK, 2017) 9’23’’
Light Moves Outstanding Choreography and/or Performance Award
A mysterious group of figures find one another in the woods. They unite in dance and, as the evening falls, reveal their true identities.
Les Indes Galantes
(France, 2017) 5’47’’
This striking film blends the music of Jean-Philippe Rameau with krump, a dance style that grew out of the riots following Rodney King’s beating in Los Angeles, in the 1990s.
How to Sink a Paper Boat
(Ireland, 2019) 13’17’’
Premiere | A CoisCéim Production
How to Sink a Paper Boat delves into the mysteries of the sea as events of Dublin Bay’s past collide with the present, bringing history to life in a bold, physical short film.
