The radical visions of two of modern dance’s most revolutionary choreographers are captured with lightning-in-a-bottle brilliance in this dynamic pairing. In NIGHT JOURNEY, the legendary Martha Graham stages and performs her powerfully physical interpretation of the Oedipus myth, directed by acclaimed avant-garde filmmaker Alexander Hammid with striking sets by Isamu Noguchi. The alchemy between choreographer and filmmaker yields similarly scintillating results in PINA, Wim Wenders’s dazzling documentary portrait of the renowned Pina Bausch, whose ecstatically expressive explorations of the human condition leap off the screen with thrilling, immersive immediacy.
