Finite & Infinite Games



An interdisciplinary dance film, Finite & Infinite Games, is a celebration of unity and color. Filmed at Judson Memorial Church in 2010 and premiered at Art Basil Switzerland, Games draws inspiration from philosopher James P. Carse’s “Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility.” The suite of nine dances, directed and choreographed by Katherine Helen Fisher, explore the individual’s quest for generativity within community.

Visual artist C. Finley created the 48’x12′ non-repetitive geometric painted canvas as a comparative replication of the dance. Costumes by fashion designer Gai Mattiolo. Film by RJ Muna. Edited by Sam Chase. Score by Phillip Glass, Moondog, Michael Nyman, Riff-Ola, Food. A thisiswater Production.

Live performances of Games were presented at Judson Church and at Danspace Project in 2011.
