Dancinema 2020 Selection: ESCAPE
OFFICIAL SELECTION 2020: QUARANSCREENDANCE View Full Program @ www.dancinema.co/quaranscreendance @cascadiadcfestival @capitoldcfestival * * * ESCAPE Valdivia, Concepción, & Los Ángeles, Chile 13 Mins In November 2019 Heidi Duckler Dance performed as part of the international programming at the Centro de Experimentación Escénica in Valdivia and at the LOFT International Dance Festival in Concepción, Chile. The company arrived at a time of mass protests fueled by the increased cost of living and prevalent inequality in Chile. Despite the rising fear of violence and feelings of trauma coming back from the days of the dictatorship, the festivals moved forward with their programming. Duckler, impacted by the protests, decided to create a film titled, ESCAPE, with HDD Dancers Tess Hewlett, Ryan Walker Page, and Himerria Wortham along with Chilean filmmaker Felipe Díaz Galarce and dEUSeXmACHINA Films to develop a powerful work that reveals the correlation between the Chilean and American experiences. The team traveled and filmed in Valdivia, Concepción, and Los Ángeles, Chile, listening to the stories of local residents, using dance as a tool of expression and resistance. Now as we face global crises, the themes of fear, increasing inequality, and unstable leadership feel more relevant than ever and are explored through this cinematic experience.

Moving Portraits is a short dance film by the two dancers Himerria Wortham and Raquel Cabrera. Born out of a yearning for elevated images of women of color, Wortham and Cabrera borrowed from their respective Algerian and Mexican cultures to create this contemporary dance portrait. "Our goal with Moving Portraits is to celebrate the beauty of our mixed heritages and American cultures through fashion and dance. Understanding that media is one of the strongest educational vehicles of change, we wanted to create images of women of color that encapsulate the dignity, beauty, and poise we wished we could have grown up seeing on TV."

| NIOBE |
NIOBE, a weary traveler from an unknown land, carries with her only the pain and suffering of all the people she has encountered along the road. Niobe arrives at an impassable wall, an unavoidable stop. She uncontrollably begins to release the held sadness that she has collected. The communal tears start flowing through Niobe. She becomes submerged in the tears of humankind. The water that at first was drowning her, begins to cleanse. With renewed strength, she reemerges. Writer | Director: Christopher Allen Director of Photography: Michael Elias Thomas NIOBE | Choreographer: Himerria Wortham Editor: Adam Larsen 1st Assistant Camera: Daniel Waynick Costume Design: Zoe Johnson
