Big congratulations to my friends Liz Levine and Adrian Salpeter of Random Bench Productions. Finite and Infinite Games – a collaborative art project between a choreographer, filmmaker, visual artist and fashion designer – is celebrating its European premiere at the Hot Art Fair at Art Basel Switzerland from June 14-20.

The film features nine pure movement performances for 10 dancers choreographed by artistic director Katherine Helen Fisher. The massive, colorful geometric backdrop is by visual artist C. Finley with costumes by Gai Mattiolo. Award-winning dance photographer RJ Muna shot and directed the performance at NYC’s Judson Memorial Church. Random Bench produced the film and provided new technology applications, marketing and social networking strategies to execute this labor-of-love across multiple mediums.

Finite and Infinite Games is “not about people sitting in a dark room watching a screen,” says Liz. “This is a thinking person’s movie.” Two iPads in the Art Basel booth encourage viewers to put themselves right into the piece through interactive photographs.

Longtime friends Liz and Adrian launched Random Bench to develop, produce and market original films for an international audience. As we chatted about the premiere, Liz highlighted a key juggling act for creative pros everywhere:  balancing pure inspiration and creation with more commercially viable work. While Finite and Infinite Games represents art at its finest, I’m sure it will make a deep impression on the Art Basel galleries and international glitterati.

Check out the film’s website for performance dates and times – if you’re lucky enough to be in Switzerland for Art Basel.
