Contemporary Color (Bill Ross, 2016, 97 minutes)
In summer 2015, legendary musician David Byrne staged an event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, 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 Lucius; Nico Muhly and Ira Glass; Nelly Furtado; St. Vincent; Devonté Hynes; How To Dress Well; Zola Jesus; Money Mark + Ad-Rock; and tUnEyArDs to join him in creating original compositions to accompany ten color guard teams’ performances. The result is Contemporary Color, a bold and irrepressible snapshot of a one-of-a-kind live experience. “Color guards are…in my way of looking at them, a sophisticated folk art form that flies under the official cultural radar,” says Byrne, according to Slate.
