About the event
CreateART's Dance Film Nights offer a space to view recent dance films and get to know their makers, featuring monthly screenings all summer of dance films followed by a Q&A with the makers. This season we will be hosted by Millennium Film Workshop in Bushwick and will be donation based (suggested donation $10).
Morning Time X GHOST
Supernatural and hypnotic, Morning Time X GHOST combines the creativity of musician and creative director Alison Clancy, film director Max Louis Miller, and dancer Albert Esquilin Jr. aka GHOST. Known for his signature step, “The Ghostwalk,” GHOST is a legendary Bruk Up (broken form) dancer and teacher. Bruk Up is a style which draws on Jamaican dancehall and hip-hop forms but is also used as a practice to heal broken bodies and spirits. After a childhood accident, GHOST spent many years wearing a leg brace, but used dancing to rehabilitate himself and develop a unique vocabulary of movement textures. The haunting sound of Alison's song “Morning Time” is embodied by GHOST's fluid yet precise movement, featuring his own stylistic creation called “possession.”
Topia investigates the complexity of emotions, specifically exploring individuals’ different manifestations of darkness – numbness, dissociation, depression, mania. The work examines the necessity of vulnerability, community, holding each other in pain and joy, and the effects that can have on the individual as well as those we let in. Directed by Jessie Lee Thorn & Justin Thorn.
