Bolero Session 1
documentary
2:41 minutes
2014

This is the first dance session in a new video series titled "Bolero," shot on location among San Antonio's 'urban ruins': decorative floors which were once the interiors of buildings but are now exposed to the elements due to demolition by neglect or for gentrification. This project combines my love of social dancing and - using video instead of concrete as the medium - my work embedding traces of historical culture and memory in the changing urban core. Couples dancing to diverse styles of music in older neighborhoods across the city represent different eras and influences in San Antonio's history.
