I am thrilled to announce that my plans to turn Deviation, Twice Removed (a stage duet I originally choreographed in London in 2016) into a short dance film are moving full speed ahead!

NEFA_black_RGB_small_0This project has recently received partial funding from New England Foundation for the Arts’ New England Dance Fund, with generous support from the Aliad Fund at the Boston Foundation. I am extremely grateful to NEFA for their support – this generous funding is crucial to making this film a reality. Read a quick summary of my project on NEFA’s website.

The film will feature choreography and creative direction by yours truly; dance performances by myself and my collaborator Carolyn Harper; and cinematography/pretty much everything else by filmmaker Christopher Di Nunzio. We are currently in planning meetings and studio rehearsals, and will be heading up to our film location over several days in June.

That location is none other than the Madame Sherri Forest in southwestern New Hampshire. We chose this gorgeous location for both its natural beauty and strangeness – the juxtaposition of dense forest with a manmade ruin, in this case, literally a crumbling mansion staircase to nowhere. It’s the perfect landscape for our abstract exploration of genetic memory, which itself is the intersection of lived human experience with biology.

Be sure to check back here, and to follow me on Instagram (@mcnult45), for a behind-the-scenes look into our process on-site in June. Trailers should be launched later this summer, with a live screening of the full film following in the fall! It’s been a long road and I am so excited to go on this creative journey!
