BACK ON TRACK (2019)
Shauna Sorensen, Victoria Prince, & Ian Hoyt
The elevated subway line in Queens is the inspiration for, "Back On Track." The walls of the station are glass, allowing the train as well as passengers entering/exiting the train to be seen. The energy/habits of train travelers are used to explore concepts of commuting in a big city.
"ESCAPE" is a film born out of Los Angeles based site-specific dance company Heidi Duckler Dance's experience performing, teaching, and filming in Valdivia, Concepción, and Los Ángeles, Chile, during a time of civil unrest in November 2019.
MORTAL STAIN (2018)
Kathy Escobar & Marion-Skye Brooke Logan
In this body, you are free.
"Initiation" is the cinematic experiment of Polish Dance Theatre. Each of the frames is the separate, pictorial composition. Looking into the human habitats, toxic relationships and untamed fears we can see that demons, with whom the characters struggle often exemplify social problems described on the front pages of newspapers.
MIS AMORES (2019)
Dinorah de Jesús Rodriguez & Niurca Márquez
A simple celebration of Earth, origin and ancestry.
DEL MUNTU (2019)
"del muntú" is portrait of a woman of black and indigenous ancestry, a dignifying memory. In her search for freedoms she dances. The film is part of a body of work that explores the African and Indigenous philosophy described in the literary work of Colombian writer, Manuel Zapata Olivella.
AS ONE. AS TOO. AS 3 (2019)
Sarah Nachbauer & Jon Eden
This piece titled "As One. As Too. As 3." is about unity and is about how we are not fully complete until we are able to be strong enough within ourselves to offer unconditional support to one another.
Gabriel Beddoes, Mattia Parisotto, Teresa Sala, & Ilaria Vergani
A man stands, with his gaze suspended, in a sleeping city. Choreographed in the awakening by the daily gesture, it moves in it like a sponge. Thus, feeding on the actions of others, he reflects the world around him and dances, dances silently with his own shadow.
KICK-UP HICK-UP WILL YOU WON'T YOU (JOIN THE DANCE) (2019)
A morning stroll in Onagawa turns sour when unfamiliar surroundings and information overload suddenly turn hostile on you. When too much is going on, and the voice in your head turns out too demanding, all you can do is let go and dance.
