Sine and Time: An Aerial Dance Film
“Sine and Time” (working title) is an aerial dance film, being made with support from Dance Canvas, that explores how outside forces guide the ebb and flow of relationships. Individual worlds colliding as the result of happenstance combined with choice.
Some of the relationships depicted include the blossoming of a relationship cut short by loss through a vertical dance duet, a harness trio that was pulled together by momentum navigating how to maintain connection when the forces that brought them together disappear, a relationship with deep roots exploring how far they can progress as a result of common ground. All of the relationships being woven together by the pendulous, sine wave-esque movement that results from being suspended by rope and harness.
My biggest priority is paying my dancers, technicians, and artistic contributors a fair wage. It is profoundly important not only to me and to the artistic world here in Atlanta, but the United States as a whole that we enable artists to work as professionals. Without support, we cannot provide you with the quality of art you deserve to enjoy.
