The people of Battle Lake, Minnesota star in this short community screendance. Participants rolled dice to find their movement quality, level, and direction. The participant that followed began their movement with the movement of the last person. The result is a seemingly continuous dance in Battle Lake's Artstream Alley. Produced as part of the annual DanceBARN dance festival. Soundtrack by Hamilton Beach.
A short experimental screendance shot at sunset exploring the idea of new opportunity in a small community. "Hatchery Row" is a look back at the landscape that "was" with the hope of providing new opportunity and a new sense of place in rural Minnesota.
