Still from "Roam"

Guest blogger Danielle Marie Georgiou is a dance lecturer at the University of Texas Arlington. She also serves as assistant director of UT Arlington’s Dance Ensemble.

Combining a love for dance and film, seven artists from North Texas will be screening their work at the Dallas Hub Theater on Saturday

After the initial success of the Hub Shorts Film Festival, which debuted in July, the Dallas Hub Theater has chosen to host the event monthly. This month’s festival will feature video work created by myself and other local dance/film artists:

  • Danielle Georgiou (UTD/UTA faculty) – “Roam”
  • Philip Gentile (Dallas) – “Cursive”
  • Amanda Jackson and Melissa Watt (TWU/Denton) – “Framed
  • Lily Sloan (TWU) – “Not Vampires”
  • Michele Hanlon (UTD faculty/Elledanceworks) – “The Guitarist/Outside In”
  • Micki Saba (UTD faculty) – “Izzat” (“Honor”)
  • Rachel Bruce-Johnson (TWU/Oral Roberts University faculty) – “She Drew a Picture of a Whale”

Hanlon’s “The Guitarist/Outside In” was chosen as a finalist for the 2009 SideBySide International Online Dance Festival and was most recently at the Dallas Museum of Art as a part of the “All the World’s a Stage: Celebrating Performance in the Visual Arts” exhibit. My dance film, “Roam,” is an official selection of the 2010 Dallas Video Fest. It will be shown as a part of the “Theatrical Musings” screening on Sept. 25 at 5:30pm at the Angelika Mockingbird Station.

Additionally, many of the choreographers/directors will be installing complimentary pieces of work in the lobby – including a video installation by Sloan and interactive sculptures by Bruce-Johnson and Saba. I will also be installing a new performance art/video piece.  Seventeen-year-old singer/songwriter Justin Duenas will provide live music. Justin will hit the stage at 7:45 p.m.  The screening will be begin at 8:15 p.m., with a Q&A with the directors to immediately follow.

Come and enjoy a glass of wine and some dessert with us and enjoy the dance films being created in the area. Click here for ticket information.
