DUST HOUSE, A DANCE MEETS FILM GALLERY EXHIBITION.
For this project, Fly on a Wall immersed themselves in the layers and patterns of an abandoned house in Atlanta’s historic West End. Multiple vignettes were created to reveal the intrinsic nature of each room and the ways in which we live in them. Fly on a Wall has collaborated with three distinctive Atlanta filmmakers, Felipe Barral, Kris Valeriano and Alex Zhuravlov, as well as Stephanie Swart, an animation artist from New York City.
Each filmmaker was presented with the same physical material. They were given one day to film from their point of view using their individual style. The edited films will be exhibited, side-by side, to present four unique perspectives on the same work.
: 7PM DUST HOUSE Opening 7-10PM @ DASHBOARD ATLANTA GALLERY 31 NORTH AVENUE

ABOUT FLY ON A WALL
Fly on a Wall’s Artistic Directors began working together in the spring of 2014 with a shared desire to work across mediums and be a voice for Dance Theatre in Atlanta. The creative process that Fly on a Wall’s artists use is unique in that there isn’t one lead choreographer or director; instead, the process is truly collaborative and ideas are able to flow freely and exchange with ease. This equal creative investment fosters a heightened focus, as everyone has equal input. Fly on a Wall’s collaborative nature extends beyond dance; Fly on a Wall collaborates with actors, filmmakers, animation artists, and musicians who create new compositions and also perform them live.
