Campus + Community Film Series: The Mind of a Dancer

Saturday, September 10, 2022,

Maine Film Center at Railroad Square Cinema, 17 Railroad Square, Waterville

The Campus + Community Film series is a collaborative program of the Colby College Museum of Art and Maine Film Center at Railroad Square Cinema. Films selected are related to or inspired by current exhibitions and/or works in the Colby Museum collection.

Can You Bring It: Bill T. Jones and D-Man in the Waters (2021, 1:34) is a feature documentary that connects our world today to the fear, anger, grief, and hope of the AIDS pandemic that was at the heart of Bill T. Jones’ ballet, D-Man in the Waters, when it debuted in 1989. As we see a group of young dancers learn this work, new understandings of the power of art in a time of plague emerge from the experience. This film series is inspired by the exhibition, Alex Katz: Theater and Dance, on view now at the Colby College Museum of Art. 

This screening is free and open to all.
