In-Person Screening and Online Workshop with Anabella Lenzu
Join Anabella Lenzu for an in-person event on Wednesday, May 31st at 6:30pm(EDT) at Carroll Hall (2 Vandervoort Place Brooklyn, NY 11237).
The event will highlight four award-winning short dance films and an intimate conversation with choreographer and filmmaker Anabella Lenzu.
How do we navigate the unbalanced life of a parent/art-maker? What makes a good mother? What makes a good artist?
The dance films reflect Anabella Lenzu’s experience as an artist living in New York and come from a deep examination of her motivations as a woman, mother, and immigrant.
Since 2006, Anabella Lenzu has presented 390 performances, created 14 choreographic works at 100 venues, and produced 9 dance films presented in over 200 festivals both nationally and internationally.

You can also join Anabella for a two day online workshop on June 3 and 4 from 11 am – 2 pm (ET).
This two-day workshop will be led by choreographer Anabella Lenzu and photographer/ filmmaker Todd Carroll.
The objective of the course is to gain an understanding of choreographing for the camera and the choreography of the camera when recording dance for all screens.
Explore how to adapt, extract and see choreographic material transform from 3D to 2D. We will lead participants through exercises, discussions, and works that look at the role of performance and the use of movement in filmmaking, embracing risks and limitations.
Participants will explore questions like: What is Choreography? How do we read dance now? What is performance for you?
In addition to the scheduled class time, all participants an have a one-on-one 30 minute private consultation. At the end of the mentorship program you will receive a certificate of completion upon request.
The Registration deadline is May 31st, 2023. To apply, please send your resume and a cover letter explaining why you are interested in participating to firstname.lastname@example.org
