In a Glass Hour | Johannes Goebel
Tuesday, February 17, 7 PM
Free + Open to the Public

In this talk, music will serve as a projection screen to reflect thoughts on time. Music is, quite obviously, not language (even though there are many who say music is the universal language). Sound moves differently in time than pictures or touch. A printed book evolves differently in time when we read it than a piece of music when we listen to it. A film can be fast-forwarded differently than a piece of music. Music in Western culture has dealt with time and rhythm differently than music of other cultures. The Western notation of music in conjunction with the development of clocks influenced how we think and feel time. Time became mechanized, and now computers are lost without their clock. The assumption that time, as we see it governing our lives, allows us to structure future, present and past (in that order) is a political tool, for better and worse.

Unfiction | Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait
Directed by: Philippe Parreno + Douglas Gordon
Friday, February 27, 8 PM

Over the course of a single match (Villareal vs. Real Madrid, April 2005), 17 film and video cameras captured every move - every step, every squint, every strike - of legendary footballer Zinédine Zidane. Directors Philippe Parreno and Douglas Gordon have used their documentation to create a modern portrait that is equal parts performance, athletic event and intensely personal reverie. 

Via a surround mix of audio, viewers in EMPAC's Theater will be immersed in this poignant examination of the human condition of the athlete and of athlete as performer. 

For an additional treat, arrive early and grab a snack. For an hour before the screening, Epicurean (, will provide food and beverages for purchase in EMPAC's Evelyn's Cafe.

DEADLINE: MAY 1, 2009 

EMPAC announces the 2009-2010 guidelines for the DANCE MOViES Commission. This is an open call for artists, choreographers, dancers, and filmmakers, based in the Americas, working in the genre of dance for the screen. The deadline for the proposals is May 1, 2009.

The EMPAC DANCE MOViES Commission will support the creation of experimental works for the screen which may vary widely in content and form, yet are united by the fact that the image on the screen was crafted by, or in collaboration with, a choreographer or movement-based artist.
