Finite and infinite games

James P. Carse
the writer of Finite and Infinite Games, suggests:

There are at least two kinds of games.

One could be called finitethe other infinite.

The finite game is played for the purpose of winning,

an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play,

...and bringing as many persons as possible into the play.

Finite players play within boundaries;

infinite players play with boundaries.

Finite & Infinite Games,

An interdisciplinary dance film,
is a collaborative art project between a choreographer, 
filmmaker, visual artist, and fashion designer
is a celebration of unity and color. 

It draws inspiration from philosopher James P. Carse's 
"Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility."

The suite of nine dances, 
directed and choreographed by Katherine Helen Fisher,
seek to explore the individual's quest to find purpose in life 
through creation within community. 

Visual artist C. Finley created 
the 48'x12' non-repetitive geometric painted canvas
 as a comparative replication of the dance.

 Costumes by fashion designer Gai Mattiolo. 

Film by RJ Muna. Edited by Sam Chase.

The film was filmed at Judson Memorial Church in 2010,
a spectacular space with an illustrious collaborative arts history.
