“CAA” is a dance film by Ana Mara Alvarez, founding artistic director of CONTRA-TIEMPO Activist Dance Theater, commissioned by the Getty Museum for the exhibition “Poussin and the Dance,” on view February 15May 8, 2022. Alvarezs film is one of three unique responses by Los Angeles-based choreographers to the legendary French painters many scenes of wild revelry, dancing nymphs and satyrs, and dramatic action drawn from classical myth. Like Poussins epic painting “Dance in Honor of Priapus,” which provides a window into a private ritual being performed by a group of women dancing in a ring, Alvarezs film also draws us into a private world of a group of women, dancing together unselfconsciously among natural landscapes and dressed in lusciously colored textiles. Throughout the film, sugar cane is ripped, bitten, and swung about as a meditation on this indulgent substanceechoing themes of vice and virtue, and the pitfalls of bacchanalia that were investigated by Poussin.
