Dir: Mary John Frank, 3 mins 23 secs, 2013, USA, INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE

Screened  as part of Dance For Camera programme


Contemporary Swing is a whimsical, experimental dance film that will make you smile. Choreographer & Director, Mary John Frank, creates movement for the camera and combines her dance moves with an art installation in this playful short.

The film takes the familiar and pushes it to a new level creating a refreshing and clever display of dance and visual art. Mary created the project as her final thesis at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts while getting her M.F.A. Degree in Dance. The dancers are from Tisch Dance & Musical Theater and the project was shot by students from NYU's film school. The project was a fun and collaborative experience and we highly recommend having swings on your next set!
