Dance for Film on Location at Montclair State University is a project of the university’s Office of Arts and Cultural Programming. With support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s Choreographers on Campus Initiative, three exceptional choreographers have worked with outstanding filmmakers to explore the art of dance when created especially for film, rather than as a document of a dance performance. The resulting short films have made their debuts in tandem with live performance pieces receiving their world premieres as part of Montclair State University’s acclaimed Peak Performances series. The first, Soliloquy, was directed and choreographed by Heidi Latsky and debuted at Montclair State University’s Alexander Kasser Theater in April, 2015. The second, Nora Chipaumire’s Afro Promo #1 Kinglady, debuted at the Kasser in April, 2016. Doug Elkins’ A Hundred Indecisions, debuting in April, 2017, is the third and final film in the series. Montclair State students have played key roles in in the development, production, and performance of each film. Student filmmakers have also created short documentaries to provide contextual insights for each film. All of the films and their supporting documentary materials are available online at danceforfilm.org for Montclair State students and others to view on demand.
