MOVING CITIES: DALLAS EXHIBIT
This exhibit showcases photography and a short film combining Dallas performing arts talent with the culture, prestige and urban modernism of the city. Moving Cities: Dallas captures the dancers performing in a wide variety of locations across Dallas, celebrating their unique talent and Dallas' diverse landscape. The production took place in early September 2016 in 17 Dallas locations, featuring 56 dancers from ten different dance organizations.
Commissioned by VisitDallas, Moving Cities: Dallas is seventh in an ongoing collection of short films by the award-winning London-based videographer Jevan Chowdhury, using dance to present 21st century global cities. It is an artistic comment on cities as they stand today. Not the postcard past portrayed, but cities that mean business. The project brings together the best dance institutions a city has to offer, from world-class ballet to contemporary, and juxtaposes them with their city landscape.
