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.
