Vt. dance film to be screened at Marquis Theater
MIDDLEBURY — Cradle to Grave Arts will host a benefit screening of the film “Dear Pina,” in Middlebury on Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m. at the Marquis Theater on Main Street. A discussion with the artists behind the fill will follow the screening.
The film documents a dance performance of the same name, and was created during four of the six sold-out performances in June 2012 at the vast Breeding Barn at Shelburne Farms. This hour-long dance/theater piece is a tribute to Pina Bausch, the well-known German choreographer who changed the shape of dance and influenced many artists around the world.
The piece showcases an ensemble of 30 performers — including some from Addison County — and the work of seven collaborating artists in a swirling opus of relationships in motion.
Vermont-based choreographer Hannah Dennison, who created “Dear Pina,” and other collaborating artists will host a post-film discussion.
Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors. Half the proceeds from this screening will benefit five more live performances of the site-specific work at Shelburne Farms in late June.
