“Because dance is fucking terrifying”

Tickets $10 : http://screamdance2015.bpt.me

Announcing SCREAMDANCE! a new, experimental dance horror film festival in its very
first year that seeks to support movement oriented films with a dark vision. Can zombies
swagger with the kind of lurid grace that would make Maguy Marin Sleep No More? Are there
filmmakers who spend hours toiling on stop motion animation replicas of the elevator scene in The
Shining? Perhap Thriller should be restaged with an all puppet cast? Balletic slasher scenes,
anyone? Essentially: is dance film ready for dark genred storytelling? Is dance horror even a film
genre? We posed these questions to the dance film community at large and accepted
submissions free of charge, and now we are proud to present
SCREAMDANCE! International Dance Horror Film Fest as the curated result of our questions.
Happening for one night only! on October 30 at UnionDocs, in conjunction with a Dead Celebrity
Halloween party, where you can dress up as your favorite dead celebrity while infinitely
fishnetted and danceable band The Simple Pleasure pours sound into your ears and Brooklyn
Brewery helps you pour other things into other places. Advance tickets strongly encouraged as
space is limited! Admission includes SCREAMDANCE! + Dead Celebrity Party + all you can safely drink.
OFFICIAL SELECTIONS for SCREAMDANCE! to be announced on October 11.

SCREAMDANCE! is dreamed up & directed by Marisa Gruneberg of white road Dance Media
(NYC); curated with love and gore by Meredith Early (Hattiesburg MS), Brandon Polanco (Austin
TX), Jenny Stulberg (San Francisco CA) and Zeb West (Oakland CA).
