Fosse In Film: All That Jazz + post film discussion
26 Sep 2019 6:30pm - 9pm
All That Jazz is a semi-autobiographical drama/fantasy film directed by Bob Fosse, starring Roy Scheider and Jessica Lange. It is a showbiz take on the road to death, born out of Fosse’s feelings of impending doom following a heart attack. It won the Cannes Film Festival Palme D’Or and several Academy Awards.
This screening will be followed by a post show discussion on power and exploitation in the dance and film world.
“The film … is an uproarious display of brilliance, nerve, dance, maudlin confessions, inside jokes and, especially, ego.” New York Times, 1979
“Sensational dancing and eye-popping production numbers punctuate the confessional reminiscences of arrogant, satirical theatrical eminence Joe Gideon as he flirts with Death.” Empire Online, 2000
This film screening is in partnership with the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
Fosse in Film: Mashiya Presents is screening five Bob Fosse films (Sweet Charity, Lenny, Cabaret, Liza with a Z and All That Jazz) to demonstrate and celebrate the breadth and skill of Fosse’s directing and choreography in film. The films will be shown as part of Scalarama Festival Leeds 2019 with funding from Leeds Inspired and support from key Leeds partners including Hyde Park Picture House, Leeds Film and Northern School for Contemporary Dance.
