PWNW presents a screening of jin camou & Julia Calabrese’s Episode III, with live original music by Mary Sutton. Following the screening there will be an accompanying dance, performed by camou and Linda Austin, as well as a short duo-in-progress by Ayako Kataoka, with Kathleen Hong.
As the third part of a trilogy involving a pair of body-snatched characters, Episode III is a short film with a live score featuring an alien duo arriving on their home planet. Traces of interplanetary travel are revealed through their re-inhabited alien bodies, now synthesized on their planet of origin. This film is their love letter beamed back to Earth. Created and performed by jin camou & Julia Calabrese, costumes, styling and production assistance by Sarah Baker, director of photography by Leah Brown, with original music by Mary Sutton. Episode III was created in part by the Spaceness Festival 2017 and will screen at the 40 North Dance Film Festival.
