For NEW Creatives – Join the Project
Creatives will be randomly paired off into teams–with one dancemaker and one filmmaker– at the kick off event. This creative team has full autonomy for the project from concept to finished screendance short. Creatives source and select additional collaborators, gear, site, choreography and production elements. The creatives are encouraged to think about the specificity of their city and consider iconic sites within their city to serve as inspiration for the project.

Kristi Faulkner (Dance)
Kristi Faulkner is a choreographer, performer, filmmaker, educator and activist. Based in Detroit, she operates under the philosophy "dare to be different" - creating thought-provoking, visceral experiences that generate meaningful conversation and social exchange. Her work challenges and excavates ideas about sensuality, strength, authority, disgust, attraction, and objectification while centering on authenticity and shedding the artifice of technically-focused performance to show what makes us human in ways that are relatable, yet sometimes uncomfortable.
