Hinge Arts presents RAWdance’s short dance film Picnic (2020) as part of ViDEOSKiN II, a festival of short contemporary dance video works based on the theme skin created by international artists, curated by Monique Romeiko.
Picnic takes place within a surreal, grassy bubble, echoing the experience of its creators, RAWdance Co-Artistic Directors Ryan T. Smith and Wendy Rein, while sheltering in place in New York’s Hudson Valley last summer. Themes of time and consumption expand and converge throughout the film, countered by a klezmer music through-line.
Picnic premiered as part of the CONCEPT series: Digital Edition in August 2020.
This edition of ViDEOSKiN will be a Live in-person/in-theatre event. Five different full-packed screenings of international contemporary dance films will be shown at Movie Garden – a gorgeous, open-air cinema set up in a bamboo grove on a hill – in Nepal! Read more about ViDEOSKiN.
