Welcome to Grace Street Theater

Virginia Commonwealth University's Grace Street Theater is a little known but successful example of renovation and adaptive use of a historic property. The building originally opened in 1935 as the Lee Theatre, a neighborhood movie theater showing second-run films. It served for a brief period in the late 1950s/early 1960s as an art house theater. In 1965 it became known as the Lee Art Theatre and began presenting adult films along with burlesque style dancers. VCU purchased the property in 1993 and after extensive renovations the building re-opened in 1996 as VCU's Grace Street Theater. The theater is now the primary performing venue for VCU's Department of Dance and Choreography which operates the building and the box office. VCU's Department of Art History and Cinema Program also uses the building for many of its classes and screenings. In addition to its University uses, the 225 seat theater is available to the Richmond community to rent for dance performances, films, lectures, and other events.

Admission: Free and open to the public

4:00pm – VCU Student, Alumni and Faculty Filmmakers Showcase

Moderator: Mary Beth Reed

6:00pm – Christmas Wedding Baby (2014)

With special guest, writer/director Kiara Jones.

Moderator: Brandi Summers

About Christmas Wedding Baby:

A bride to be discover that her first love has been hired as her wedding photographer, while her two sisters reach similar crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

Christmas Wedding Baby explores the distance between the perception of happiness and actual joy. Through these three women and their eccentric mother, it questions the societal definitions of success and reevaluates the roles and responsibilities of today’s woman. it also examines the depth of passion and commitment of men who are often struggling and confused in this gender non-specific landscape. There are no villains in this film, just men and women who love each other, yet somehow fail terribly at communicating their emotions.

Shot on location in the director’s hometown of Jacksonville, Florida and funded through a Kickstarter campaign, Christmas Wedding Baby is a touching story with a stellar cast, and an inspirational example of independent filmmaking in the current landscape.

Admission: $8 /$5 students

Tickets are available at https://www.showclix.com/event/DANCEONCAMERA16 or at our Grace Street Theater Box Office M-F, 12-4pm at 804-828-2020.

 

(Photo: From SHIFT by Rachel Lincoln and Amelia Randolph)

Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Dance & Choreography kicks off its 2016-2017 season with the Dance on Camera film screening, Monday, September 26, 2016 at 8:00 pm at the Grace Street Theater, 934 West Grace Street. Tickets are $8/$5 students, available via showclix.com or at the door.

This year’s screening was curated through the American Dance Festival’s Movies By Movers Institutional Partnership program by film festival director Cara Hagan, and coordinated by VCU Dance professor Martha Curtis.

Movies By Movers is an annual festival dedicated to the celebration of the conversation between the body and the camera. It showcases collaboration between the ephemeral art of live movement and the perpetual nature of film. Students, emerging artists, seasoned professionals, even those who would not consider themselves “artists,” but have great ideas, find room on the festival’s screens to share their craft. The VCU Dance screening includes five films:

Normal Day – Directed by Ani Xhuma
In this short film we are looking at the life of White, a young man who comes back from work, frustrated from his everyday life keeps commenting on everything that is happening to him. When he enters the house we meet his 3 colors or personalities that are always there to visualize his thoughts, feelings but also the external inputs that he experiences and receives. As the movie proceeds we get to see more of white’s everyday life and his concerns about himself and life around him.

SHIFT – By Rachel Lincoln and Amelia Randolph
SHIFT is a short mountain dance film featuring Bay Area vertical dance company BANDALOOP as they journey across the Sierra. Using climbing technology to access back-country sites including a 2900 foot dance wall, BANDALOOP challenges the boundaries of site-specific performance, re-imagining what dance can be and where it can take place. Lead by founder and artistic director Amelia Rudolph, the company of eight dancers hike from Yosemite Valley over the crest of the Sierra supported by a technical team of riggers. Dances are staged and captured throughout the journey on multiple terrains, including steep cliff faces, on slabs of granite, and in the spray of a waterfall. Both virtuosic and human, SHIFT invites viewers into the incredible endeavor of bringing dance to the wilderness. As the performers find grace in the midst of high altitude effort, their artistry highlights the grandeur of the mountains and transports viewers into exhilarating, playful, and visually stunning BANDALOOP choreography.

Klasse – Directed by Malia Bruker Klasse
Klasse tracks back to the winter of 1938 in Jewish Hamburg at the height of WWII in a classroom kept just as it was during the war. The chairs, desks, chalkboards and solid walls are reminders of the haunting fixity of place against the trace of memories left as records of a tortuous time. The intimate cast of German middle school students and guest artists bring to life letters written between young classmates as they left one by one on the Kindertransport, reimagining the courageous spirit of children with uncertain futures, both then and now.

In Passing – Directed by Andrea Schermoly
Technology and social media often gives a sense of being more connected to our community than ever. But are we really? In Passing is a short dance film that explores the loneliness that results from this false sense of connection, the pace of our overstimulated interactions, the illicit affairs that seem so easy in our modern world, the struggle with one’s perceived identity. No one is immune to the hurt of isolation and betrayal. American painter Edward Hopper’s use of bold color and weighted environments in his paintings suggest this sense of loneliness, and serve as inspiration for the aesthetic of the film. In Passing is directed choreographed by South African choreographer and former Netherlands Dance Theater dancer Andrea Schermoly with cinematography by Zack Bennett and Kevin Schlanser, and a new score by Mikael Karlsson.

Platform 13 – By Camiel Zwart
Platform 13 tells the tragicomic story of a Japanese railway conductor. With his equally strong as graceful movements he keeps the biggest crowds under control. But than he ends up in his biggest nightmare: a strange new world, in which he and his signals prove unnecessary.

Dance on Camera is the first event in VCU Dance’s 2016-2017 performance season. The presenting program of VCU Dance is committed to building and engaging dance audiences in the University and Richmond communities while providing opportunities for artists to present and create work.

Recognized by professional dancers and choreographers as “a place where things are happening,” Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Dance and Choreography offers a vibrant and stimulating atmosphere where students prepare for careers in dance.

"My truth is my truth, your truth is your truth, and six billion people on this planet have six billion truths" -- Devdutt Pattanaik

“My truth is my truth, your truth is your truth, and six billion people on this planet have six billion truths” — Devdutt Pattanaik

The Myth We Live In:

“In our contentious political landscape, there is often anger and hostility between those with different worldviews. Our own cultural story and the subjective truth we believe shapes our worldview: bringing us together or tearing us apart. Our stories, our subjective truth, is the myth we live in.

Take an eye-opening look at the stories that shape our worldview and examine your own subjective truth. In an inspiring talk, author and mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik delves into how we bridge the divides of our cultural and personal myths; whether those divides arise between cultures on opposite sides of the world, the other side of town, or across our own kitchen table.”

About Devdutt Pattanaik:

“Traveling all the way from Mumbai, India, for this event, popular TED presenter, Devdutt Pattanaik, author, mythologist and leadership consultant, presents internationally on the management insights derived from mythology, and has written extensively on mythological stories and symbols to shine light on our modern life. He has written over 600 articles and 30 books on the relevance of sacred stories, symbols and rituals in modern times.”

“SISTAH SINEMA-RICHMOND and AFRIKANA INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL in Collaboration with University of Richmond’s WILL* Program and Common Ground Present, “Out in the Night” with NYC based director and producer, Blair Doroshwalther and Renata Hill, one of the women whose life was turned upside down by events of and evening in August 2006.

Late one night in August 2006, a group of young black women walked down the Avenue of the Americas in the West Village. Typically, these women frequented the area as a place of acceptance. They found themselves at home among the populous LGBTQ community. Yet, on this night, an ogler begins to threaten the women when they deny his advances by admitting they are lesbians. Fearing for their safety, the women fight back, and one of them pulls out a knife. In the ensuing brawl, the man suffers a non-life-threatening stab wound, and the women successfully defend their lives. Or so they think. Renata, Patreese, Venice, and Terrain—exploited as a “Gang of Killer Lesbians” in the media and dubbed the “New Jersey 4” by activists—plead innocent to charges of gang assault but were ultimately sentenced to as many as 11 years in prison. Blair Doroshwalther’s documentary OUT IN THE NIGHT follows the heartbreaking story of what happens when four black women stand up for themselves.

We are honored to have in attendance Director/Producer, Blair Doroshwalther and Renata Hill, who will take your questions!”

Fierce, charismatic choreographer Nora Chipaumire has been described by dance critic Deborah Jowitt as “thrilling… a powerful woman with a strong message.” In this visceral exploration of African masculinity, Zimbabwe-born, Brooklyn-based choreographer Chipaumire is joined by the specters of her estranged father (performed by Senegalese dancer Pape Ibrahima Ndiaye, also known as Kaolack, and Jamaican-born dancer Shamar Watt). In a makeshift boxing ring, under the harsh glow of halogen worklights, the three trade jabs steeped in Chipaumire’s trademark synthesis of contemporary African movements.
