BEST OF CAPRI BY NIGHT 2017
BEST OF CAPRI BY NIGHT 2017
In December 2017 Capri by Night presents Now Dance.
Now Dance borrows it’s name from a song by the same title, released in 1987 by Byron Davis & The Fresh Krew on the 4 Sight Records label. Like many early Miami Bass artists, Davis packed his work with samples from sources like Ohio Players’ Love Rollercoaster and Roger’s unforgettable 10+ minute rendition of I Heard it Through the Grapevine.
Now Dance is both an original composition and an index of sorts, enticing listeners to learn more about the genre’s roots and influences. Ben Sisto’s December collection of videos for Capri by Night works in a similar way — a mixtape of ideas, samples, artists and presentation styles that offer a window into the wider world of dance as he has come to know and appreciate it.
curated by Ben Sisto, who oversees the cultural programming at Ace Hotel in New York, including annual exhibitions and artists in residence program
A selection of video works by artists based in Bulgaria. Each of the works responds differently to the concept of the “couple”. It is about diversity in different forms of communication – between two friends, lovers, family members, teacher and student, even between two digital devices or between the artist and his imaginary antipod.
curated by Daniela Radeva – a curator for contemporary art, based in Sofia, Bulgaria

The compilation BROKEN ROMANTICISM is looking for lost idylls not only in opera and novels. the videos of the compilation are investigating reflexive romanticism in contemporary urbanity. it is about ideals, dark longings and cultural insight – about faded leitmotifs, illusions and disillusions. this is time-based romanticism.

The August selection is a compilation of short films, which represent a very own category of the dance film. Here, the choreography was specifically developed for the medium of the moving image and involves both the dancers and the camera. Dance performances, made for the camera, will never be the same on a real stage. They strongly depend on their spatial environment, whether an outside, inside or a completely fictive space.
