Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre: "CAMERA ILLUMINATA"

Camera Illuminata is a collection of dances inspired by the paintings of John Currin, Edgar Degas, Hippolyte Flandrin, Egon Shiele, and Caravaggio.

The performance derives its name from camera obscura (dark chamber), a device used by painters to view a scene projected as an image inside of a dark box. In Camera Illuminata, the inverse is achieved, as two-dimensional paintings inspire dances, cast into the lit space of the theater. Each dance of "art" is paired with a musical complement.

The New York Times calls the evening a "fascinating suite" with a "powerful conclusion."

Location: Emelin Theatre, 153 Library Lane, Mamaroneck NY
