About the event

Image description of event photo: Black and white photo of "Telephone" dancer Camille Tokar Pavliska wearing  dark shorts and tee-shirt. She is in a deep lunge with her arms spread  out, wrists flexed. Text is overlaid on the photo reading: telephonefilm.com.

Telephone Film, co-directed by choreographer/filmmaker Heather Shaw and Dark Room Ballet Founder Krishna Washburn, is a disability arts film project that promotes radical arts inclusivity by bringing awareness to audio description for dance, an art form that allows blind and visually impaired people to be fully included in the joy of artistic expression. Telephone advocates for a new paradigm of anti-ableist artistic expression by showcasing audio description as an art form in its own right, while also providing an immersive sensory experience of dance for audience members of all sight levels. The screendance documentary is the first of its kind, featuring diverse disabled and non-disabled artists who have come together to prove that: dance is visceral, not merely visual. Join us to experience the forty-five minute film, followed by a talkback with the co-directors. The conversation will center around accessible art, creative choreographic/filmmaking methodologies, and the future of anti-ableism in the arts.

ASL Interpretation will be available during the event.
