Sundance Film Festival: Animation 03/05/15 To 03/21/15
Over its 30-year history, the Sundance Film Festival has been an indispensable showcase for short films—and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers. The 94-minute live-action program includes both fiction and documentary shorts in a range of styles, and subjects ranging from a hilarious government deposition to the struggle to understand the meaning of life to beautiful insight. The animation program features 90 minutes of world-class creativity, from vivid hand-drawing to painting to puppetry, with stories of love, art, bubbles, nudism, the creation of the universe, and what it all means.

RUBBERBANDance 04/10/15 To 04/11/15
“An exciting, seemingly improbable fusion of hip-hop, ballet and modern dance.”—Los Angeles Times With the freshness and spontaneity of street dance, the rigor of ballet, and the inventiveness of contemporary dance, RUBBERBANDance Group defies gravity with humor and humanity as well as power and grace. Choreographer Victor Quijada, who was a b-boy in Los Angeles before signing on with Twyla Tharp and later Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, codirects the Montreal-based company with Anne Plamondon. Their latest production, Empirical Quotient, explores human relationships with six exceptional dancers whose backgrounds range from classical, contemporary, and urban dance to circus arts.

These two pieces combine stunningly lovely imagery with inventive movement and shadow play for works that are,as she says, “at once semi-scientific (like flipping through a children’s encyclopedia), emotional, and dream-like, rich in surrealism, metaphor, and fantasy.”
