'Hit and Run' Part of Dance Film Programme at IFC
07 May 2002 :
The International Dance Festival of Ireland has programmed a day of screenings of dance film for Sunday 19 May.

CoisCeim Dance Theatre, from Ireland, will be performing a dance drame for film with Rough Magic Films. According to the festival programme, "Directed by John Comiskey and choreographed by David Bolger, Hit and Run centres on the story of one night in the life of 8 underworld characters. They meet for an unspecified purpose in a very large derelict building, which is the 9th character. It is large without apparent limits, a maze of corridors, stairs, halls, landings, machinery, cathedral like vaults and dark pits like futuristic dungeons. but it is also in its own way, a magical place, a place of transformation, and those who enter will not leave unchallenged or unchanged."

The international programme for dance films also includes a selection of screenings from BBC's Dance For The Cinema strand, introduced by Rodney Wilson from the BBC.
A selection of dance films from some of the most prominent directors including Philippe Decoufle, Thierry de Mey and Peter Greenaway.
A short retrospective of the award-winning British filmmaker David Hinton, well known for his filmic collatorations with DV8, Wendy Houston and Adventures in Motion Pictures.
An open discussion on dance film-making in theory and practice with contributions from David hinton, Rodney Wilson, John Comiskey and Rosemary Butcher.

There will also be a screening the previous evening (Saturday 25th) of 'Singin' In The Rain' on Meeting House Square, at 10pm. Admission to this screening is free, but does require tickets.

Admission to the IFC for the Dance film selection is EUR5/EUR3 for the morning/afternoon, and EUR8/EUR5 for a day pass.
