Kia Simon's In Public Space, featuring local companies POTRZEBIE and Flyaway Productions, shares a bill July 30 with Encore for Ruby, about early San Francisco Ballet dancer Ruby Christiensen (of the famous Christiensen ballet family), and Speaking on Dance, a portrait of city dance legend Lucas Hoving. Those who follow the precocious choreographic career of current San Francisco Ballet principal Julia Adam will want to catch The Medium; it screens July 16 with a documentary on modern dancer Erick Hawkins, and The Red Shoes, starring the iconic Moira Shearer and a young Royal (then Sadler's-Wells) Ballet. San Francisco choreographer Rebecca Salzer's Office Furniture accompanies filmed reconstructions of Isadora Duncan's pioneering dances July 23, and Mikhail Baryshnikov's melodramatic celebrity vehicle, The Turning Point.
