Aura Lee

The relationship between OSU Dance faculty and students is a dynamic one — a collaboration between experienced working artists and enthusiastic young dancers. When dance-filmmaking Prof. Mitchell Rose saw a study by sophomore Charlotte Stickles in Prof. Susan Hadley's Composition 2 class, he thought it would make an exciting dance-film.

Globe Trot

a dance-film by Assoc. Prof. Mitchell Rose , Emerita Prof. Bebe Miller

Globe Trot was an international crowd-sourced dance-film project. Prof. Rose got 54 filmmakers in 23 countries (representing all seven continents including Antarctica) to each contribute two seconds of footage of non-dancers performing choreography by Prof. Miller. The film has the effect of creating a sense of equalization — when a new image takes the place of an old image, with the same continuity of action, it says, These things are equal. And that was the hope of Globe Trot — that it would convey a message that people, all over the world, are equal. This two-project, which has won 15 awards, had to be very precise. You can see the training information for the filmmakers here.
