Returning Home
Returning Home, a breathtaking and groundbreaking dance documentary in which 80-something Anna Halprin, pioneer of postmodern dance, uses movement as a means of connecting the individual to nature, and art to real life. In collaboration with performance artist Eeo Stubblefield, Halprin moves along thresholds of earth, wind, water and fire, discovering lessons in loss and liberation. Whether surveying the charred remains of her home, or her scars from cancer and aging, Halprin finds beauty and meaning even in the destructive forces of nature. A testament to the importance of honoring the human and earth bodies, this unforgettable film takes us on a mythic and very personal journey home. (45 min.) more

Steel Work
Steel Work, a film by Elliot Caplan with music by Philip Glass, David Bowie, and Brian Eno mixes dance with industrial elements which simulate dance movement and form. This film offers a unique dance for camera work through its application of non-dance elements as dance. At the core of this piece is choreography by Robert Poole which was inspired by principles of industry. Other elements include electronic manipulation of images, a steel mill, steel workers choreographed by Poole, and steel structures in New York. (48 min.)
