W.T. Preston Artist Talk and Screening of Dance Film

November 23, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the Anacortes Museum, the Seattle based dance company MALACARNE, and filmmaker June Zandona in the first public screening of their dance film created on the W.T. Preston. During the month of August, this all-womxn dance company and a film production crew worked on the W.T. Preston as part of the Anacortes Museum artist in residence program that invited artists to create new works in response to the history, culture, and engineering of the National Historic Landmark Steamboat. Lead by choreographer Alice Gosti, their combined efforts culminate in a 15-minute film that explores the mechanics of the boat and invents new choreographies in the wheelhouse, galley, Captain’s room, and other nooks and crannies of this three-deck steamboat that once cleared the river ways of Washington State. Join us for this free event to watch the premiere screening, meet the artists, and to hear about their creative process.
