Emory's annual program of short dance films Dance for Reel is co-curated this year by Atlanta choreographer Blake Beckham and Dance Truck founder Malina Rodriguez. Beckham and Rodriguez say that the films were selected based on connections to the Atlanta dance community. Kyle Abraham, a recent artist in residence at Emory, appears in “Quarantine,” a film by Gabri Christa. Angelin Preljocaj's Provence-based company wowed the Atlanta audience this time last year at the Rialto, so the program includes “Pavillon Noir” by French director Pierre Coilibeuf which explores the company's home in Aix-en-Provence. New York choreographer Aszure Barton made her Atlanta premiere at The Ferst Center a few weeks agoe, and her work is featured in “Afternoon of the Chimeras,” a piece by Daniel Conrad. The evening will include a work by Emory alumna Natalie Metzger, a choreographer and filmmaker based in Los Angeles. Metzger’s “For Water” is a collaboration between dancers from Indonesia and America, and is inspired by the importance of water to the islands of Indonesia and to water-starved California.

"Dance for Reel" takes place on Tuesday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the Oxford Road Presentation Room, 1390 Oxford Road, on Emory’s campus. The program is free and open to the public.
