NEW!! – The Pandemic Dances

“The Pandemic Dances” flow from my previous dance-on-camera pursuits. Sheltered at home due to pandemic, miles apart from and grappling with my mother’s final days, I created a small dance for her utilizing at-hand elements of lighting, sound, set. This first film is leading into a series seeking to capture the character of the moment in which we’re living through intimate dances in interior settings – my first effort to capture autobiographical work on film in movement and imagery.
