Chrysalis (1973) 16mm, color, 21.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Dance

Made in collaboration with Alvin Nikolais, featuring the Nikolais dance company. CHRYSALIS is the result of structuring a series of cinematic and dance ideas Nikolais and I had. The film involves the dancers in improvised choreography, varied costumes, and cinema techniques from slow motion (400FPS) to pixilation. I did the sound score, using the voices of the dancers.
