PICK – An Experimental Short

Director Benjamin Ross Hayden

If you are channel surfing this week in Alberta, click over to Channel 10 Broadcast, Nov 6 – 1am, Nov 7 – 9PM and Nov 8 – 10pm. You’ll see a really cool experimental film that I helped with a few months back. The music and the visuals come together to creep you out and suck you in.

The film is about the re-appropriation of history, a boudoir in Calgary on February 15th & 16th, 1916 provides the inspiration and it was shot in the creepy basement where a massive riot began.

This film was shot entirely on film. The scratches are real. The stunts are real. The credits are also hand-scratched.

Benjamin Ross Hayden, up and coming director, first approached me to do the film while I have having breakfast at a trendy dinner in February of this year, it was a little out of the blue but insanely awesome. After that day it wasn’t long before I was all costumed up on set ready to stick an ice pick in my face in the dustiest room I’d ever stepped foot in.

The whole thing was a complete blast.

World Class Partner Poi – Zan & Aurora

November 7, 2010 Leave a comment

Nothing like watching the best in the world to inspire you to take out your practice poi and get spinning again. Aurora and Zan do a poi retreat in Costa Rica that I will be making every effort to hit in the next year or two. Till then I’ll be watching from afar as I drool into my Kerosene.

Zan & Aurora of the Instruments of the Now performance troupe dance at ‘Tsunami on the Square’ festival in June of 2009. The fire poi routine was performed in Prescott, Arizona’s town square for an audience of 2500.

A performance on April 24th, 2010 by Zan and Aurora as part of the Fire Dancing Expo in Union Square, San Francisco. Partner poi gets a classy dance make-over.
Lots of thanks to Annetta Lucero and Roz Schrodt for choreography, and to Taarka for music.
