Over at EMPAC at RPI in Troy, New York we look forward to “media-dance” pioneer and Merce Cunningham collaborator Charles Atlas, who will be in residence this spring to develop a new piece of choreography tailored for the screen.

The multimedia dance form he helped popularize has been a programming priority at the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (110 8th St., Troy) ever since its opening.

With generous support from the Jaffe Fund for Experimental Media and Performing Arts, the DANCE MOViES commission will present this year’s selected works on Saturday (January 31) at 7pm. Admission is free.
