Being & Becoming

Director, Cinematographer, Colorist
Oct 2020

This is a deeply personal project—an improvised short dance film, performed in the urban and abandoned spaces of central Connecticut. The score is original music by J R Stitt, recorded in improvised sessions, and all dancing was either improvised by the performers or choreographed by Mikaela Papasodero on the day of the performance.



"I think all human beings actually are ratios of being and becoming."

– Joy Ladin, American poet and essayist
