8pm: Vertigo Bird and Vašhava
Two pieces from the Slovenian dance group, En-Knap, Vertigo Bird and Vashava use modern dance to more closely examine industrial labor and working life. Performing in Eastern European mines at the height of their profitability and after their abandonment, the juxtaposition of dance and space, industry and art, creates startling imagery. Bodies and spaces move to their own mysterious ends, in both work and play, and the result are films of unmistakable orginality.
