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: WATERMORPHOSIS, 4min., Germany, Dance

Weightlessly, life moves through dark infinity, a mystical space without threat. The dance embodies the beauty of nature, appears innocent. But as suddenly as it arises, it becomes vulnerable and physical – life is suffocated by dead matter. Plastic. Reality. An estimated 5 – 12 million tons of plastic waste reach our oceans every year. – Where does it come from? Where is it going? What remains? These and other questions are posed by the short film Watermorphosis. Abstractly staged, based on facts, it forms an image, a feeling, a thought – open to interpretations and dreams.

Short Film: FLORETS, 4min., USA, Dance/Music Video

7a18223e32 posterAs I get older I keep realizing that so many things change in life. People go in and out. Trends go in and out. Relationships go in and out. We never know what our next path in life is and that’s what is so astonishing. I relate the Florets to life. They grow, they are a wish, they are alive, they fade away, and then we find new growth.
