David Byrne’s “Contemporary Color” with performers St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, and Ira Glass (March 31 – April 6)

Pin It

Contemporary Color is a performance event and now a major motion picture inspired by the phenomenon of color guard, colloquially known as “the sport of the arts”—conceived by David Byrne, co-commissioned by Brooklyn Academy of Music and Toronto’s Luminato Festival, and with support from WGI Sport of the Arts.  Ten 20-40 person teams from the US and Canada will perform at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, alongside an extraordinary array of musical talent—performing together live.

 

In the summer of 2015, legendary musician David Byrne staged an event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to celebrate the art of Color Guard: synchronized dance routines involving flags, rifles, and sabers. Recruiting performers that include the likes of St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, Ad-Rock, and Ira Glass to collaborate on original pieces with 10 color guard teams from across the US and Canada, Contemporary Color is a beautifully filmed snapshot of a one-of-a-kind live event.

 

Critic Quotes:

Over all, this movie is less “you are there” than “you had to be there.” – The NY Times
