ReelAbilities NJ - 2021 Film Festival presents: Behind the Scenes of On Display mini-documentary and “Conversations With… ” Elaine Katz and Heidi Latsky
Behind the Scenes of ON DISPLAY: The Documentary
To create their final project for Professor Stuart MacLelland’s documentary filmmaking course, five MSU student producers went behind the scenes of Heidi Latsky Dance Company’s site-specific installation, ON DISPLAY. Latsky brought a diverse cast of 14 performers, some with disabilities, to the Kasser Theater stage to create and film, a mesmerizing new sculptural dance work in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the company’s residency, the student filmmakers observed both rehearsals and filming from a remote broadcast studio and conducted interviews with the performers, choreographer, faculty experts, and the PEAK Performances production team. Their illuminating documentary tells the inspiring story of a boundary-pushing creative collaboration.
