Cheer Up Baby // Adinah Dancyger :: A young woman who was sexually assaulted by a stranger on the subway is rendered with psychological menace and sensory dislocation in this elliptical tale.

Takako VS. Nine Lives // Lauren Wolkstein :: Juxtaposes classical ballet and masked professional wrestling in the lucha libra style.

our last aria // Scotty Hardwig :: A duet dance for camera film, made on location in the Eureka dunes of Death Valley California. This work follows the journey of two figures traversing a kinetic and emotional landscape in the heart of a desert wilderness.

Sky of Trees // Raven Jackson :: Water is incarnated as a woman and experiences the wonder of the world for the first time. Shot entirely on 16mm film.

Circadian Rhythm // Ariel Noltimier Strauss :: Juxtaposing dance and stop motion animation, Circadian Rhythm is a ballet that moves through the cycle of a day, playing out in 3 acts.

Herd // Florence Laford :: That morning, as she gets ready for her dance audition, Alex is outrage when her mother forces her once again to babysit her disabled sister.

Heron // Roxana Barba :: Developed from of an intimate encounter with a wounded heron, this dark underworld unfolded through dense and controlled movements to the pulsing sounds of cars passing on the highway. Rising and looking for light, she manages to jump over the bridge only to find herself in a new limbo, by the side of the highway.

The Icons // Mitchell Rose :: Alternative interpretations of signage from America’s favorite generic couple, The Icons.
