Celia Rowlson-Hall: Dance and Film

WITH GUEST DIRECTOR/CHOREOGRAPHER CELIA ROWLSON-HALL

Run Time: USA Language: English

Synopsis

Tonight’s program at the Aurora Picture Show will include a selection of Celia’s dance films and fashion and music videos, interspersed with commentary by the director. Rowlson-Hall began her career as a dancer and choreographer for theater, but caught the film bug after being asked to choreograph a music video for MGMT. Rowlson-Hall began working on a stunning series of short videos in which she performs, including The Audition (2012) and the 2010 piece, Prom Night, in which “she shapeshifts into various female archetypes, from Pamela Anderson to the Virgin Mary,” according to Filmmaker Magazine. Both films will be screened tonight, along with The Magician, Looking Glass, Silent Street, Afloat, Olive Juice, and more. Last year, with the release of her first independent feature MA (screening in the Houston Cinema Arts Festival on November 13), she was named one of Filmmaker’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film.

Joining Rowlson-Hall in conversation about the films will be Lydia Hance, Houston-based choreographer, filmmaker and the Director of Frame Dance Productions.
