Dean Moss: Untitled (perfect human) screening and artist talk with Young Jean Lee
Screening and Artist Talk with Young Jean Lee | Tuesday, December 1, 8pm ET
A link for the livestream will be sent to registrants prior to the event.
Following the livestream, the film will be available for viewing at danspaceproject.org from December 2-22.
Untitled (perfect human) is a mesmerizing digital film by interdisciplinary choreographer and video artist, Dean Moss. Referencing Jørgen Leth’s 1967 Danish cult film, The Perfect Human, Moss reimagines Leth’s “empty” white space as a seductive kaleidoscopic world of flesh folding in on itself, offering wry observations of race, materialism, and spirituality.
On December 1, playwright, director, and filmmaker, Young Jean Lee, will join Moss for a screening of this new work. Building on their long standing artistic relationship they will engage in a live discussion of the film’s making, sharing insights on how their relationship grew from mentorship to collaboration, plus take questions from the audience.
Accessibility: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request CART live captioning or any other access requests. Requests should be submitted by November 9.
