The Scientist and the Showgirl follows the path of a dance filmmaker turning into a pyromaniac sculptor, and the unlikely ways that those things relate to one another. Starting with the challenges of color, light, and camera movement, Kat Green found herself going down a rabbit hole of cause and effect, leading her to play with the ideas of telling a story through minutia, cadence, and finally making inanimate objects dance.

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.
