https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEuhOne_1wU;The Silent Chaos of Growth;2:03;The concept of this piece is about how growth and life can be a chaotic journey, but often silent because it is usually an internal process. When a seed sprouts out of the ground we do not hear it, but that does not mean it’s growth was an easy process. Often life we are met with many emotions and circumstances that are often hard to describe such as joy, anxiety, depression and grief to name a few. My black outfit is a symbol of a funeral dress to express the concept of our past selves dying, allowing to make more room for many layers of the self to emerge as we continue to live this dance of life.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYIQW03qtKc;Lemus;3:58;A woman struggles to have an identity, to recognize herself, to be ... but that path leads her to madness.
The street of your childhood and a recurring memory of shame and nakedness that corrupts your soul. To return there, to the fragmented woman, to the feeling of disintegration and loss, to rebuild yourself. To meet with steps already taken, to walk on steps already taken, to be unable to escape. To return, to return, to flirt with madness.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgETThi70Sc;Threshold;13:45;Threshold is a poetic and intimate dance of remembrance. Dance filmmaker Larry Asakawa and choreographer Kara Jhalak Miller collaborated to create a screendance with the Jhalak Dance Company. Performers included Tina Chan, Cy Higashi, Lance Sabado, and Katelyn Wyatt. In 2021 the dancers met in person for the first time since the global pandemic required restrictions in Hawai’i a year before.
The dancers and filmmakers had mixed emotions throughout the extraordinary year and committed to creating a dance for camera, acknowledging the millions of people worldwide who perished because of COVID-19. The vast and lush Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden gave both solace and recognition to the unique moment in these artists’ lives. The dance was digitally filmed on iPhones over two days.

Every step of life pushes us to walk on this line where sometimes we fall.r
However, the days spent on this path where it is difficult to keep the balance keep us alive.r
Often the goal is to reach the destination but at the end, everything stops.r
We who were always looking far away, in an incessant rhythm. Let’s finally take the time to contemplate the path that brought us here.r
Because in the end, what counts is the path taken and not the destination.»r

She has chosen the radical treatment of neurodialysis: clearing up unpleasant memories and fears, wanting to drive away her growing anxiety and sadness. Next step: the side effects. The body reacts. And nightmares visit her while she moves.
How can a body move when it feels like a shadow of its own existence? What is the distance that separates it from the source of life? And while we tend to robotize, what does «human» eventually mean?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8fyngbfz-Y;Terra;43:00;Terra expresses the detriment of pollution in Appalachia, through mythology and culture. The film follows a student character that is taught about the threats of climate change by the 4 natural elements: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water.
Throughout the work, the elements signify that they used to symbolize life, now they symbolize fear and destruction. This elemental metaphor reflects how the earth warns us of human disruption through the increase of hurricanes, floods, mudslides, forest fires, and other natural disasters.
The elements guide the student through time, from the past to now, as a warning to take action against climate change before time runs out.
By working with an artistic medium, we hope to not only engage the public, but provide a platform for young Appalachian artists. Consequently, we hope to accurately portray what is happening in the region without relying on stereotypes, overdone Appalachian tropes, or overdone topics. We hope to create a platform in which young artists feel they have a place in the region, and do not feel they have to leave to have opportunities. To put it simply, we want to provide Millennial and Gen-Z artists with a voice for two reasons: for one, we have a deep outmigration amongst the youth in the Appalachian region and want to provide opportunity; two, we, the youth, are the ones that will ultimately face the climate crisis.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm_ykJyh_Zw;Murmuring;5:17;“MURMURING” was borne from the impacts of COVID on the performing arts industry and particularly, the desire to nurture the mental health, spirit and connection of dancers and audiences alike, who were struggling through the prolonged 2020 COVID lockdown in Victoria, Australia.
The film Murmuring includes artists from The Australian Ballet (TAB) plus the 2020 Graduating year of The Australian Ballet School (ABS) (normally the graduate year level performs at State and National venues and accompanies The Australian Ballet on a regional tour). The Australian Ballet had not performed since March 2020, and whilst all dancers had undertaken some form of remote classes from their living rooms, the extensive COVID lockdown resulted in isolation and lack of connection as all performance opportunities and collaborations disappeared in the wake of back-to-back lockdowns.
Amidst a sense of despondency, the collaborative Project Starling evolved. It aimed to work within the COVID restrictions with the mission that artists, volunteers and audience members would feel a sense of achievement and connection, despite the year which challenged those very things.
Project Starling was a plan to work towards producing a film of a large group choreographed piece in a public location which would involve artists and students mentoring, learning and rehearsing remotely until they could meet in person.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJXxsi_YX3Y;Not Anymore;5:30;(Not anymore) is a short experimental dance film based on Idea Vilariño’s poem (Uruguay 1951), that explores body poetics to speak out about heartbreak and diversity. While they are being moved by the craving of past coincidences, the dancers establish a dialogue across the impossibility of finding each other. Thus, the dream turns to be the non-place where everything is going to exist: a rehearsal for letting go, a date for no meeting or another version of an already known farewell.
«When the way we were is no longer, waking up means absence and therefore dancing could be the garden where we’re still true».
