Frame Dance Explores the Relationship of the Moving Body and the Camera through Film

Houston TX – What if you could watch dance under water? Or up on a mountain peak in Tibet? What if you could be a silent and invisible observer of the magic that happens in the veiled dance studio? Frame Dance hosts their second annual Frame x Frame Film Fest that takes audiences to see dance in these spaces, and more. Filmmakers are represented from all over the globe in this 3-day film fest that begins on October 4 and runs through October 6, 2019. The weekend’s events opens with “If the Dancer Dances,” a feature-length documentary that takes viewers inside the dance studio with the Petronio Company in New York City as they restage Merce Cunningham’s “Rainforest” for his centennial, two programs of short dance films by invigorating filmmakers from Australia, Europe, Africa, and the United States, “Breaking Boundaries” documentary about the formation and history of Houston’s own world renown ballet company, a filmmaking workshop with Tara Knight, Rebeca Salzer, Liz Burritt, and Liam Clancy, and other activities that will take place at the Houston Ballet, 14 Pews, and various locations. Ticket prices are varied and range from Free to $65.00 for an all access pass.
