From the starting point of what today can be referred to as “the downtown dance community,” curators Elmo and Leary journey into the recent and somewhat obscure past of the NYC dance scene in the 80’s and 90’s with a program of rarely seen footage. At the screening will be artists that were around and active during those decades. This screening marks the beginning of a larger project of an archival collection of videos, photographs, programs, posters, set props, sound scores, notes and other relics from the 80’s and 90’s NYC dance scene’s influential people, their work, collaborations, politics and persuasions.
