Cécile B. Evans presents her “experimental ecofeminist thriller” A Screen Test for an Adaptation of Giselle and a related performance work—Notations for an Adaptation of Giselle (welcome to whatever forever)—in Paris, through the first week of November. The works are part of the Move 2020 festival at Centre Pompidou.
Both A Screen Test—which combines digital footage, 16mm, VHS recordings, animation and AI—and the live Notations performances feature Alexandrina Hemsley as Giselle, Rebecca Root as Bertie, and Lily McMenamy as Leonida.

Through November 7.
