Artist-driven Curating and How it Could Help Galvanize a Screendance Movement

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.

Rythmn & Feel Performance


I am performing in NEW YORK CITY. If you are in the area please come and check out the show. I recently participated in a two-week intensive workshop on ISADORA with TROIKA RANCH.

Gideon Obarzanek got the Cinedans 2008 Jury's award and the public award!

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.

Congratulations… Continue
