Danspace Project presents a retrospective evening of Intermedia artist Elaine Summers's work in film and dance as part of PLATFORM 2010: Back to New York City from Thursday, March 18th to Saturday, March 20th.

"I'm in love with light and movement and bodies and this is why I choreograph dances and make films... Exploration of light and movement naturally led me to filmmaking. Film to me is another form of dance: camera movement and editing are another form of choreography."
