Torse + Bill Dietz & Amy Cimini in conversation
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Torse, 1977, Dir. Charles Atlas, HD restoration of 16mm double projection, 55 min.

As part of a series of programmes devoted to the work of composer Maryanne Amacher, her former collaborator Bill Dietz is in conversation with musicologist Amy Cimini, author of a forthcoming monograph on Amacher.

The conversation will be followed by a screening of the film Torse (1977) by Charles Atlas. This two-channel work documents Merce Cunningham’s eponymous choreography through multiple cameras, performed to Amacher’s composition Remainder (1976). It is a rare recording of Amacher’s work from this time, which was often specific to singular sites, iterations and scenarios.

The Maryanne Amacher programme continues on Friday 31 May with a talk presented by Bill Dietz and musicologist Amy Cimini followed by the UK premiere of GLIA (2005).
