[UN] W.R.A.P. Dances That Don't Look Like Dances (2019)

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.

The presentation and production of Post Verbal Social Network was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Post Verbal Social Network is also supported by a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Headlands Center for the Arts Residency program, the MacDowell Colony, the Atlas Institute and the Center for Humanities and the Arts at CU Boulder, and the Boulder County Arts Alliance.

Creative Expression: Dancer turns everyday experiences into art

“CU has an unbelievably expansive definition of dance,” Ellsworth said. “The dance department is incredibly experimental with an exquisite commitment to understanding the complexity of contemporary performance, whereas many other dance programs are still mired in a European esthetic.”
