Wrong Wave 2013: Revenge of the New Puritan

Brought to you by Unit/Pitt, co-produced by the Western Front, and co-presented by the Pacific Cinematheque and SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement, Wrong Wave 2013: Revenge of the New Puritan draws inspiration from Charles Atlas’ 1986 fictionalized documentary Hail the New Puritan. Featuring music by the Fall and production design by Leigh Bowery, this landmark documentary features modern dance, music, and art, sharing the stage in a jarring mix of post-punk and New Romanticism. This year’s festival includes a new dance work by Jen Weih, a screening of Charles Atlas’ film, and a film and music event by Kensington Gore and friends, as well as other special musical guests and panelists.
