It Has A Golden Sun and an Elderly Gray Moon

January 2

This film will be on view in the Jepson Center from January 2 – April 7, 2018.

Filmed as one unedited and continuous shot, Ulla von Brandenburg’s (German, b. 1974) film It Has a Golden Sun and an Elderly Grey Moon features seven performers engaging with a monolithic white staircase that acts as a stage for their danced narratives. Their movements, collectively and individually, become a choreographed struggle against the hierarchical architecture of the stairs. This film uses dancers, architecture, and fabric props to create a rich story around the tropes and traditions of theater.
