“A brilliant show. A series of mesmerizing spectacles brought to life.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

Exclusive Theatrical Engagement March 17–21

In the summer of 2015, legendary musician David Byrne staged an event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to celebrate the creativity of Color Guard: synchronized dance routines involving flags, rifles, and sabers, colloquially known as “the sport of the arts.” Byrne recruited performers including the likes of St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, Devonté Hynes, Zola Jesus, Ad-Rock, tUnE-yArDs, and Ira Glass to collaborate on original pieces with 10 color guard teams from across the US and Canada. The result is CONTEMPORARY COLOR, a bold and irrepressible snapshot of a one-of-a-kind live performance.

(2016) dir Bill and Turner Ross w/David Byrne, St. Vincent, Ira Glass, Nelly Furtado, Devonté Hynes, Adam Horovitz, Money Mark, tUnE-yArDs, Zola Jesus [107 min; DCP]
