Parade: U.S. Premiere

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024

7:30pm

Parade is the translation of a stage work by choreographer Adam Linder into a new cinematic form. Initially conceived by Linder as a reinterpretation of Jean Cocteau’s one-act ballet created in 1917 for Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, Shahryar Nashat’s filmic adaptation departs from the two original sources to become a new text through which the three dancers’ performances are catalogued and mediated through a particularly authorial lens. Parade seeks to extend the life of the choreography into a new cultural form while reconsidering the role of the camera as a passive witness to performance and dance in broader terms. The presentation of Parade marks the work’s United States premiere. (2014, Dir. S. Nashat, 38 min.) 

A Q&A with artist Shahryar Nashat and choreographer Adam Linder, moderated by curator Aram Moshayedi, follows the screening.
