Be transported to a time of grainy, romantic films in which celluloid characters pass through layered interactions in pursuit of love and connection. Films-within-films collide in Matinee, a dance/theater/film piece inspired by Robert Coover’s extraordinary New Yorker short story. This remarkable work is created by Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater artistic co-directors Stuart Pimsler and Suzanne Costello, in collaboration with filmmaker Andrew Welken. A man and a woman search for connection, filled with desire and longing for a wisp of something just out of reach. Throughout this wondrously intertwined piece, the performers move effortlessly through the stage and screen, exploring the nature of relationships in the delicate divide between fantasy and reality.
