To Die in the Valley I’ve Loved at Slamdance 2021

An experimental movement piece adapted for film. To Die in the Valley I’ve Loved explores horror movies, their tropes, appeal, and the unique brand of escapism they offer.

In this dance film, a lone dancer moves between the roles of stalker, victim and voyeur, embodying the variety of experiences provided by scary movies.

To Die in the Valley I’ve Loved was conceived as a live performance. It employs an algorithmically scrambled soundscape that triggers the accompanying text randomly.

In a live performance the dancer responds to the text with choreographed and improvised movement in real time making each live iteration of the piece unique.
