Sat, Nov 14: 7:00 pm: The Cost of Living by Lloyd Newson


A leader in Britain’s contemporary dance scene, London's DV8 Physical Theatre brings To Be Straight With You, an explosive multimedia dance theater piece, to YBCA’s Novellus Theater, Nov 12-14. In conjunction with their performance at YBCA, we offer three films created by the dancers and the Artistic Director of DV8. These films, while inspired by and featuring dance, are not documentations of performances; they are original films developed for the camera.

Two Videos by DV8 Physical Theatre: Enter Achilles & Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men
We present two groundbreaking video works from the DV8 Physical Theatre. Program includes Enter Achilles, a funny, cruel exploration of the male psyche; and the stunning Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men, loosely based on the story of serial killer Dennis Nilsen. (1996 & 1989, 95 min total running time, digital video)

The Cost of Living
By Lloyd Newson
Adapted from DV8’s stage production, The Cost of Living was shot in an English seaside resort. Eddie and David are disillusioned street performers. Eddie is tough and not afraid to defend his belief in justice, respect and honesty. David is a legless dancer who is determined not to let his disability get in his way. The film challenges notions of dance and demonstrates how expansive and individual the medium can be. (2004, 35 min, digital video)
