Dance, Film and Photography

After another lovely long weekend we finished last night celebrating with a movie at the Curzon, the Arthouse Cinema, on the Kings Road.
If you have a chance, try to catch the dance and documentary film in 3D Pina, by Wim Wenders. Pina Bausch was a German Modern Dance Pioneer, Wenders is the acclaimed film director of films such as Buena Vista Social Club and Wings of Desires.
The film features Pina Bausch's vision through some of her famous pieces such as Cafe Mueller, Kontakthof and Vollmond and impressions in dance and words by her ensemble, all supported by 3D technology that draws the viewer in at times while at others exaggerates a distance and observing position. It is a mesmerising, intense and joyful film that takes the possibilities of 3D one step further.

I am sorry to say it is only on till Wednesday at these cinemas, but here is a short clip

If you miss it or want to see more by Wim Wenders, the gallery Haunch of Venison is presently showing 'Places, strange and quiet', with photographs by the artist, till the 14 May.
