In a city where artists are priced out to the margins, and coinciding with the beginnings of occupy wall street, I inexplicably gained access to a townhouse on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I invited 9 artists to to respond, inhabit and document the building, and this is what we made.

 

For his evening of Kinetic Cinema, Adam will be sharing and discussing never before seen footage from the project Inside Lives, described above, as well as other guiding forces behind his work for stage, for studio and for camera.  

 

  

 

 

Adam H Weinert was born in New York City.  He began his training at The Royal Ballet School in London, and continued to The School of American Ballet, Vassar College, and The Juilliard School where he was awarded Scholastic Distinction and the Hector Zaraspe Prize for Outstanding Choreography for 2008.  Adam has danced with Shen Wei Dance Arts, The Mark Morris Dance Group, Jonah Bokaer and is currently pursuing a Master's Degree from NYU.

 

In addition to his performance work, Adam has been published in the New York Times, the Juilliard Journal, and as a featured profile in New York Magazine.  Weinert is the producer and choreographer of an award-winning collection of dance film shorts screened nationally and abroad, and his creations for stage have toured to four continents.  This year, with the help of Jonah Bokaer and Chez Bushwick, Adam was honored to receive a Creative Stipend from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation to create an evening length work at the Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, NY. weinert.wordpress.com 

 

About Kinetic Cinema

Kinetic Cinema, is a regular screening series curated by invited guest artists who create evenings of films and videos that have been influential to their own work as artists. When artists are asked to reflect upon how the use of movement in film and media arts has influenced their own art, a plethora of new ideas, material, and avenues of exploration emerge. Kinetic Cinema is dedicated to the recognition and appreciation for "moving" pictures. We have presented these evenings at Collective: Unconscious, Chez Bushwick, Interborough Repertory Theater, University Settlement, Launchpad, Green Space and The Tank in New York City, as well as at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia.
