Shiva Dances with the Art Institute of Chicago (October 2004; 01:43:18)
Structured by a Fall 2003 lecture at the Art Institute
of Chicago that transformed into a spontaneous and moving group performance,
I situate Funk Lessons first in the evolving tradition of recent
mainstream films that highlight the teaching of popular dance as a medium
of self-transcendence and cross-cultural contact; and second within the
broader philosophical context of The Color Wheel Series, which
this video completes.
