Dance with Trees and Absent Friend is a live performance created for AVA Gallery’s 2021 event, Through the Windows: Opening an Exhibit During Covid-19.  The film, created by CATV’s Chico Eastridge and Kealin Rooney, features artwork from sculptor Stefania Urist and sound from Jacob Elias, Amanda Sisk, Ellen Smith Ahern and Scott Walker.

View the trailer of Clear Creek, my 2019 dance film collaboration with Kate Elias and Tori Lawrence.  Two women dance through iconic western images and into something new: a moving portrait of home, land and memory as illuminated by the voices of a rural Wyoming community.  This work is made possible with support from Ucross Foundation, Dance Films Association, Coginchaug Valley Education Foundation and New England Foundation for the Arts.
