Chris Schlichting
Period

In Period, Chris Schlichting’s prolific, obsessive movement generation dispenses with preciousness and patterns to hammer out a Rosetta Stone to leave behind for the next, better world. Small tectonic collisions create a dense choreographic landscape in the spareness of the Chocolate Factory, and the dancers fasten themselves to intricate, churning movement in their slide toward extinction. Period is about letting go but not before exhausting every ounce of love one has left for dance.

Brian Rogers / The Chocolate Factory Theater
Screamers

Screamers is a 75-minute feature film created and performed by members of the experimental dance, theater and performance communities – including dancers, choreographers, directors and performing arts curators. A kind of conceptual ghost story, Screamers was conceived during a year-long residency at a former Catholic Church owned by the artist Dan Hurlin in Stuyvesant, NY – and was subsequently filmed over the course of two weeks in September 2015, with additional filming in the Playhouse at Abrons Arts Center.
