Woo hoo! We’ve finally completed the short dance film ‘Masks All The Way Down’.  We made this in collaboration with dance students from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2022. Self funded with additional support in kind from the Dance Department at UW-Madison and amazing work from filmmaker Aaron Granat (cinematographer, editor, sound design). The film also features music by the incredible Colin Stetson. You can find out more about Colin and his work HERE.

Inspired by ‘The Green Table’ (Kurt Jooss) and set in a smoky, hyper-masculine gentleman’s club; dancers move into and out of tableaux; they gesture emphatically; they fight and they fall as they argue and ultimately refuse to budge. A woman occasionally appears at the edge of frame, dancing soulfully in the margins. But no matter how hard she tries, she cannot break in or through.
