Kudos to hardworking impresario Lynette Kessler on the launch of the ninth annual installment of Dance Camera West, the month-long series celebrating the best-of-the-best of the filmed dance experience.
Here is Dance Camera's West's full schedule.
I'm particularly drawn to Lynette's June 12 symposium on German choreographer Pina Bausch, a great force in dance who died tragically of cancer last year.
Like many west coasters, life slipped by without my focusing sufficiently on this influential choreographer. So Lynette is making a great contribution by helping us catch up.
The symposium, co-hosted by Dance Camera West and the Goethe Institute, features the West Coast premiere of two films, followed by Q&A. It happens at the Hammer Museum. See you there!
