At the Screendance conference at ADF two weeks ago, I presented a paper that put forth an argument for the value of "artist-driven" curating in developing and galvanizing an art form. I wanted to propose a way of raising awareness about screendance among dance communities that would help dancers to feel like they can enter this art form that is new to them with a set of useable skills and knowledge already in place.

His piece called "Dance Like Your Old Man" is remarkably clever, full of heart and disarming in its simplicity and conceptual strength. He collapsed documentary, feature and dance film in the scenes in which six women imitate their dads' dancing and make them present in our imagination. These unseen men come to life through the dances and reflections of their children.
