A solo film created for dance artist Erin Thompson, Reckless, blooming. moves through diverse biographical landscapes, both interior and exterior spaces, as well as through a doorway, a threshold for life, time and change. Movement dynamics express the range of this performer’s life - exertion, recovery, reflection, curiosity, aging and boundless joy. Choreographed by Bebe Miller, Reckless, blooming. celebrates Erin’s 50 year performance career as a professional dance artist.
Reckless, blooming. was filmed and edited by Caitlin Hammel with lighting design by Kevin A. Jones. SOLO: Six World-Premiere Dance Films was produced by Dana K. Kassel and Colin Edwards.
Reckless, blooming. was commissioned by The Cowles Center as part of their SOLO Commissioning Program, funded by the McKnight Foundation. It was commissioned on behalf of Erin Thompson, 2019 McKnight Dancer Fellowship recipient.
LÍNEAS de SANGRE
A dance film by choreographer Taja Will and filmmaker Sequoia Hauck
LÍNEAS includes open captioning (54 mins)
Queer ceremony. Tierra. Fuego, Agua, Viento. Reclaiming connection to bloodlines through the guidance of plant and land ancestors on Dakota and Anishinaabe land, Mni Sota Makoce. We find ourselves right where we are, as we listen deeply to the plantita ancestors near us. This dance film is the biomythology of bodies in Latine diaspora, Boricua, Chicana, Chilean. We journey with the archetypes which support/guide/mask/empower us, we are LOVER, VIRGEN, SHADOW, SERVANT, SIREN and ALCHEMIST. We are here now, and ancient, elders in training and millennials, we are stress, and meditation, we are tired and we are growing.
Filmed at Belwin Conservancy, our process was held by ancestors of long, tall grasses, bison, raspberries, mullein, yarrow, burr oak, and red pine, ancestral lands of the Dakota and Anishnaabe people.
This work is created with support from the McKnight Foundation Fellowship for Choreographers, the National Center of Choreography Akron, Belwin Conservancy, and the Metropolitan Regional Art Council.
