Screendance from the “Fly-over Zone”

(Dance on Screen by artists with roots in the Midwest)

Curated By: Terri Sarris

Poster Art By: Lizzy Duquette

Installation Art By: Charlie Woodman

In his article, "Video Space: A Site for Choreography," Filmmaker Douglas Rosenberg writes, "The screen as a site for dance and choreography provides a malleable space for the exploration of dance as subject, object and metaphor, a meeting place for ideas about time, space, and movement. In the articulation of this site through experimentation with camera angles, shot composition, location, and post-production techniques, the very nature of choreography and the action of dance has been questioned, deconstructed and re-presented as an entirely new construct."  These six works by artists with roots in the Midwest showcase various approaches to exploring and integrating dance on screen.

Terri Sarris (curator) is an award-winning media artist and educator who has been teaching classes in dance on screen, documentary, narrative, and television production at the University of Michigan for over two decades. As a media maker with a “previous life” as a dancer and choreographer, dance and film are often interconnected in her work.  Her short dance film “lift” was awarded best experimental short at the Imago film festival and her short “GISH” explores silent film gesture/acting as a form of dance.   Her short 16mm film Ziegler premiered at the 2015 Ann Arbor Film Festival. Buzzards Steal Your Picnic, her documentary profile of Detroit artist Frank Pahl, was awarded "Best Michigan Film" at both the 2007 Detroit International Documentary Festival and the 2008 Ann Arbor Film Festival. Sarris has served as a juror and film moderator at the Traverse City Film Festival and as a guest curator for the Echo Park Film Center’s “Marvelous Movie Mondays.”
