Lazarus is a film album by Nikolai Kemeny that refines the symbiosis of jazz and tap dance. In this 40-minute dance film, documentary footage blends artful, contemporary, urban culture and vibrant harmonies of world music traditions. In collaborations with significant musicians of the jazz and tap scene, Kemeny provides a cosmic audio-visual fusion of the roots and visions of tap dance.

After a particularly harrowing incident at her house she manages to escape, she runs outside and screams but nothing comes out.

PINK BOOTH CONFESSIONS, 29min., USA, Experimental
Directed by Millie Heckler
Pink Booth Confessions relishes in what it means to be woman: dark, whole, broken, bent, drunk, woke, silent, brash, slutty, strong, prude, wise, forever-changing and deeply committed to humanity and love. Through a pressurized “pink booth,” performers testify to their experiences as women, illuminating their secrets and discharging them simultaneously. Directed by UVM Dance Faculty Millie Heckler in collaboration with Schivona Johnson, Britt Ford, PhaeMonae, Camille Breslin and Elias Hill, this work features original music, dance, costume design, set design, and videography. This project is supported in part by the Vermont Arts Council, the Vermont Community Foundation and the Austin Music Disaster Relief Fund.
