Remnants and Umbrellas 8-12
A Dance & Film Installation in Plaza de EspaÃ±a
inspired by the work of AgnÃ¨s Varda and Jacques Demy
by Thought Loom and the Miami Beach Cinematheque
In collaboration with the Consulate General of France in Miami
Remnants and Umbrellas 8-12 is a site-specific kaleidoscope of movement, music, and film on EspaÃ±ola Way at Plaza de EspaÃ±a. The work, which incorporates Jacques Demy’s Umbrellas of Cherbourg and AgnÃ¨s Varda’s films from the Nouvelle Vague period, is a celebration of the moving image fused with dance. Saturated colors and rich black and whites graze sparse canvases; mirrors clad palms; and umbrellas become screens which reflect images of an era as seen through the eyes of two visionaries who changed the world of cinema.
