Short Film: ABSOLUTION, 7min, USA, Dance

B3cf006e45 poster

The House of the Rising Sun is a place of transition in music and folklore. It’s a purgatory where travelers, vagabonds, and lost souls cross paths before continuing toward their life after. Absolution is a snapshot of that purgatory, that waiting room, where souls must accept the regrets and disappointments in their lives before they can cross over. Personal struggles are highlighted in duets and solos throughout the piece. Some remorse is too difficult to let go, though, and while many find reprieve from their sins and escape the cycle of self-recrimination, others are doomed to stay and repeat it.

Sexual harassment is an epidemic.
I wrote this piece as a way to relieve the screams I felt suppressed in my own skin.
I created this work for anyone who felt they were hiding in their bones too.
We can not silence the monsters of our society by hiding them,
under beds they grow and maintain.
We must put light to our demons, only then can we truly discover what it means to remedy.

Short Film: MINE, 8min., USA, Dance

C6c10fb093 poster

A dance and music collaboration between sisters exploring a coal mining site from the 1920’s where an iconic structure called the Gronk still stands. Body based dance research and song writing were translated based on the mining history of this place. The sisters collected stories and myths on Peanut and Pershing Mine from elders in Crested Butte, CO. Sasha developed gestures and movement themes from the mining stories and Sophia created lyrics and music. The Gronk overlooks spectacular views of Paradise Divide in the West Elk mountain range. The sights are beautiful and popular for outdoor recreation; however sadly still toxic. The land has only partially recuperated from destruction. Mosses are the first step in ecological restoration of toxic mine sites. Very few mosses are growing here. After land violence, how is spirit of place honored?

Short Film: HAPPY ENDING, 4min., Australia, Dance

4f988e122f poster

In 1997 magician/psychic, Uri Geller tried to help Second Division football club Exeter City win a crucial end of season game by placing “energy-infused” crystals behind the goals at Exeter’s ground (Exeter lost the game 5–1). Although made famous by his spoon-bending theatrics throughout the 1970’s and 80’s, Geller was unable however to ever successfully bend a fork.

Both the convex and concave complexity of the bent spoon is explored as a reflection of the duplicitous ambiguity of Geller; the fine line between artist and conman in a post-truth world.

Well, something like that.

Short Film: WEIGHTLESS, 5min., Canada, Dance

A01360cbc7 poster

What happens when we allow ourselves to shift perspectives? When we defy established concepts such as “direction”? Perhaps, just perhaps, up is not up, and we need to look down.
Weightless is an invitation to create an alternative reality. To imagine a world where the rules we believe unbreakable are simply an option. We invite you to get lost in your thoughts and the satisfaction of defying our most established understandings.
