Here’s the trailer for 3D Western, a dance film exploring the American West and American identity. It is a patchwork quilt of voices, bodies and landscape that, in its complexity, offers a fully dimensional portrait of place and of human experience. I am currently creating 3D Western with Kate Elias and Tori Lawrence, thanks to a residency with the UCross Foundation and support from the Coginchaug Valley Education Foundation.
