Mark Haim - This Land is Your Land

MARK HAIM: THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND / Tuesday, June 25 and Wednesday, June 26, 7 & 9 PM / The American Dance Festival and Nasher Museum co-present This Land Is Your Land by Seattle choreographer and distinguished ADF faculty member Mark Haim for 14 performers in the minimalist tradition. The acclaimed work debuted in Paris in January and is special to North Carolina audiences this summer. Set to a dynamic country music score, This Land is Your Land is based on a simple, continuously mutating walking pattern. Haim uses culturally-identifiable props, from Starbucks cups to cell phones, to explore contemporary hot-button issues such as consumerism, environmental abuse and body image. Contains adult themes and nudity. Seating will be provided; personal chairs are not permitted.

Advance tickets are avaible: $15. Purchase tickets at Duke University Box Office online at tickets.duke.edu or by phone: 919-684-4444. There will be limited chair seating available on a first come, first served basis. Additional seating will be available on the floor, and audience members will also have the option of standing. Performances are 50 minutes. More information: americandance festival.org. Photo by Tim Summers

Encore Paradise Omeros Redux

THE CINEMATIC IMPULSE OPENS / Saturday, June 29, 10 AM / Drawing from the Nasher Museum’s permanent collection of contemporary art, The Cinematic Impulse explores the intricate relationships between cinema, visual art and culture. Cinema, in the sense of a moving image, came about in the late 1800s, and its evolution has had a lasting impact on contemporary society. Its stories and images are sharply etched into our imaginations and act as windows into the shifting ideals, fantasies and preoccupations of society. The artists represented in this installation use a variety of strategies to visually examine the effects of Hollywood, from photography and video art to film itself. Their approaches reveal and examine the power of cinema, its origins and histories, audio-visual relationships, film narratives whether implied or direct, editing processes and character studies.
