Why Do You Want To Dance? Eric de Kuyper over film en dans

Eric de Kuyper presents an evening on his fascination for music, especially dance, a central theme in all his films. In this programme, he pays tribute to the classic Hollywood musical. He will also show footage from his latest installation 'Work/Travail/Arbeid' and reflect on the dance performance Echte clichés, the footage of which was recently restored by Eye.
