(North Adams, MA:) MASS MoCA visitors will find it impossible to stand still when the infectious long-form dance music video Girl Walk // All Day kicks off a dance party on Saturday, August 4, at 9 PM. Directed by Jacob Krupnick, Girl Walk // All Day is set to Greg Gillis’s (a.k.a. Girl Talk) album All Day, in which three dancers move across NYC, turning its sidewalks, parks, and architecture into an evolving urban stage. Wired Magazine calls Girl Walk // All Day “a film for everyone who caught themselves dancing in public to the music in their headphones and just didn’t care” and continues, “It’s also a piece of visual art painted with the colors of New York City, where the residents don’t even blink when a goofy girl in a windbreaker starts dancing like a crazy person right through a park in broad daylight.”

The film essentially uses nothing but All Day as its narrative, foregoing dialog aside from a subtitled encounter between the movie’s star (Anne Marsen) and a Hasidic man who asks her why she’s dancing. Krupnick explains, “I knew I needed a piece of music that had an emotional arc to it, that had a story unto itself. At first listen, the album seemed like a godsend.” At virtually every screening, viewers dance in front of the screen – not unlike fans at the average Girl Talk concert. Krupnick notes, “Most of our screenings have been without chairs.”
