Now in its ninth season, the Barnard Project and New York Live Arts present the first international collaboration creating an unforgettable experience: the “wunderkind of South African Dance.” Barnard students work with cutting-edge choreographers Boyzie Cekwana, Lance Gries, Annie-B Parson, and Donna Uchizono.
Join Chris Bregler, professor of computer science at New York University and director of the NYU Movement Lab, and Paul Scolieri, Barnard associate professor of Dance, for an eye-opening discussion of motion capture research. Bregler’s research involves modern dancers, U.S. Presidential candidates, Olympic athletes, and crowds.
“There’s been a dramatic transformation,” says Professor Tina Campt. “There’s been the transformation of going from nothing to something.” She’s talking about the Africana Studies Program, which she directs—and which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
