The New Museum is proud to present an advanced preview of the latest production from Big Dance Theater
. A Q&A with company directors Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar will follow the presentation. Big Dance Theater's new work entitled Comme Toujours Here I Stand
reinvents Agnes Varda's classic French New Wave film Cleo From 5 to 7
for the stage. Big Dance Theater teams up with video artist Jeff Larson to make Cleo's activities come alive via the intersection of three rolling walls and decidedly low-budget video, fracturing space to capture the agile quality of film.
