Dance on Film

“Not, but Still”

Friday, December 4th, 2020 at 8 p.m.

This unique dance on film was created through the fall semester on the campus of Oakland University. Under the direction of Ali Woerner, Take Root Dance Company and Oakland University’s Oakland Dance Theatre came together in collaboration for this project. Although the art and creation of dance has not been the way it was since the pandemic started, we as creators, movers and artists are still finding ways to express and build our art no matter the situation.

This performance is free, but donations are encouraged to the OU Department of Dance and Take Root.

Choreographed by Take Root founder and director Ali Woerner, in collaboration with Take Root dance company and Oakland Dance Theatre

Filmed and edited by Vivian Costello and Sam Paraventi

Original score created by Take Root musical director, Jon Anderson
