Works by Michelle Ellsworth and Brian Rogers

The New York Times hailed Brian Rogers' dance film "Screamers" as "a movie that creeps to its own choreographic beat" and declared Michelle Ellsworth's work "eccentric and marvelously original art [that] defies easy categorization." In this year’s [UN] W.R.A.P., these two innovative artists come together to expand your definition of dance.
