Choreographer and film maker Jo Andres experiments so much with high-speed dance, fluorescent fabrics and cinematic light during performances that the artist admits to being "sometimes freaked" by what it all represents. Getting this 33-year-old New York quasi-cult figure to talk about the tricks of her trade is like pulling artistic teeth. "Hey, that's not fair," Andres says with a giggle when asked how and why her dancers turn into luminous and cartoonish skeletons.

An intense and restless hour of images and movements, Jo Andres' "Before Your Eyes: Lucid Possession" received its West Coast premiere Thursday at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The New York choreographer's piece combines dance, light manipulations, slides, film and densely atmospheric music by the likes of Elliott Sharp and the Cocteau Twins into something rich and strange--but too diffuse to be genuinely powerful.

Among the films screening in the American Cinematheque at Raleigh Studios' continuing Hideo Gosha retrospective are "Hunter in the Dark" (1979) and "Onimasa" (1982). The first, which screens Friday at 9 p.m., is a masterpiece of the classic Japanese period film, a tale of the underworld that's more Shakespearean tragedy than gangster picture.
