Escape from reality at the Dance on Film Festival with short works by choreographers Rebecca French, Ashley Horn and others. French contributes The All Hands Meeting, a surreal piece that follows a woman as she attempts to escape from her sterile office environment. Mallory Horn appears in a stunning solo and in a boundary-defying duet with Carlos Guzman in All Hands, which includes gravity-resisting choreography in which characters fall up walls and casually climb on the furniture. Film editing and set design for All Hands are by Robert Thoth. Ashley Horn contributes Drain, a love story about underground pipe dwellers. Shanon Adams and Alex Soares appear as the two characters who live in a world of concrete and sludge (Drain was filmed in Houston's runoff water system). Other shorts will be announced at the screening.
