Dance Film Premieres

Always the dilemma of an artist: do you spend time running the business of promoting yourself to do you actually do the act of creativity? I’ve obviously chosen the latter since I last updated the blog in 2013, but I am happy to have time to post something of interest.

This week, Art in Odd Places will be having an archival celebration at Governor’s Island where my film “Zero” starring the young dancers of Jump! Dance Company under the artistic direction of Mary Paula Hunter will be premiering.  If you can’t come to their opening tomorrow, Sep. 13th, the film will also have its New Jersey premiere at the Outlet Dance Project’s Film Festival at the Grounds for Sculpture on Thursday, Oct. 2 at 7:30pm.

I have been very interested in finding dance films simply by walking around NYC, which is what happened when I made this film.  Several young girls all wear shirts bearing the number zero notating the number of women in specific professions (such as “zero female directors NYCB”—shame on you ballet dance world—in a world full of ballerinas why one of them can’t be at the top of your organization is beyond many of us).  I ended up following them around for the afternoon winding up in this collaborative project.

Sorry to say that though I publicized on facebook and email, I did not have time to post to this blog about last Friday’s premiere of “sunday” starring Lee Sunday Evans with original sound score by Jesse Neuman.  Taking place at the Irish Memorial in downtown NYC, the film evokes the memory of the past reflected into the present.
