Parting 6 is a video adaptation of a modern dance piece for stage choreographed by Serena Chang. I saw the original work in Columbus, Ohio at The Ballet Met Performance Space through The Ohio State University Department of Dance, in February, 2014. I was inspired to create a version of the piece for the screen, and I returned to Ohio in March to shoot the video adaptation at the EMMA lab in newly renovated Sullivant Hall.
Parting 6 premiered at the Third Coast Dance Film Festival 2014 in Houston, Texas, where it became “Spirit of the Festival Award Winner”.
