Award-winning student dance video: Gina T'ai's "Lumiere D'Ampule"

Posted by on Fri, Jul 6, 2007 at 8:08 PM

Greetings from the Dancing for the Camera Film Festival, ADF's annual curated showings of experimental and documentary films on dance. (And vice versa.)

I'm posting from White Lecture Hall (next to the East Duke building -- appropriately enough on Duke's East campus), where we're actually in an intermission on Friday night. It's just long enough to direct your attention to an award-winning student video, Lumiere D'Ampule, by choreographer Gina T'ai and videographer Joe Kirschling. The work won one of two awards for outstanding student work. (The other, Charlotte Griffin's Raven Study, will show Sunday afternoon.)

About the work, T'ai says, "We didn't set out to make a dance. This was an experiment, with a series of photographs; the 'dance' came together in the editing room."

The festival continues with showings Saturday at 2 and 4:30 p.m., here at White Lecture Hall, and Sunday at 2 p.m. at Nasher Museum of Art.
