MAGUY MARIN—TIME TO ACT—the opening film of the Dance on Camera Festival—will screen online this week.
Presented by the Dance Films Association and Film at Lincoln Center, the documentary—directed by David Mambouch, Marin’s son—celebrates the choreographer whose work “stood out for its theatrical aesthetic, political commentary, and audacious integration of traditional dance with unexpected narrative, musical and physical elements. In 1981, Marin’s work May B, inspired by the work of modernist playwright Samuel Beckett, upset the dance world; it rejected traditional ideals of beauty and embraced a fiercely political perspective.”*
Friday, July 17th.
3:30 pm on the West Coast; 6:30 pm East Coast.
