Oxbow Series

 A series of 'dance films' filmed in Northampton, Massachusetts. Each filmed in half an hour or less, always outside, filmed with an iPhone, and lit by car headlights, the Oxbow Series is my way of saying no to the preciousness of dance making and yes to the making of any old thing. With a play between seriousness and comedy, they are my response to feelings of stagnancy, sadness, and winter in New England.
