Moments Frozen in Time
An Exhibit of Dance Images
Yunchengco Museum
27 October - 2 December 2009

For Martha Graham, dance can only be collected in other media. Alongside film and video, photography is the most important means of recording dance. Its images are sculptures of human posture and light. Like theater photography, it uses stage lighting. Like photojournalism, it concentrates on the motionless moment within a movement.

Moments Frozen In Time: An Exhibit of Dance Images is a traveling exhibit organized by the Tanzarchiv (German Dance Archive) and the Goethe Institut. Rather than just present the history of dance photography, it focuses instead on the more modern trend towards the visualization of dance.

Exhibit highlights and programs include:
  • The Green Table film screening at the exhibit
  • Rhythm Is It! film screening (November 4 & 7)
  • Moving Body with Mind and Spirit artist talk with Jeannie Javelosa (November 18)
Yuchengco Museum is located at RCBC Plaza, corner Ayala & Sen. Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati City. For more details, contact Luisa Zaide of Goethe Institut at 817-0978 or e-mail
