In this short dance film something extroardinary happens when a dancer and musician struggling with depression attempt to find connection through their respective art forms.

Thursday, September 29th @ 7:00pm
Tickets: http://bit.ly/VoluntaryCaesura

Show Description - In this short dance film a former ballet dancer and a struggling musician are deep in the throes of severe depression but manage to bring themselves into a space together to move and create music. Through their respective art forms a channel of shared experience is forged, pushing beyond the barriers of isolation created by the choke hold of mental illness. In this opening the boundary of time collapses, bringing a third figure into the space as a catalyst towards what may yield real connection. The evening will begin with a screening at 7p. Afterwards we invite you to join the artists in the lobby for drinks and conversation. Photography by Christin Call will be on display, as well as photographs of the film-making process by Bret Doss. Repeated showings of Voluntary Caesura plus other video works by Christin Call will run ongoing in the theater until 9p.
