A Short Film from Intersection

Posted on: September 1st, 2011 by Garrett Ammon 3 Comments

This is The Empty Desk written by poet Michael J. Henry and recited by dancer Julie King. Filmed on location at Ranum High School (now Middle School), it is just one of several films that I created with the company for the full length performance of Intersection.

This show is the second of two major collaborations BNC has done with Lighthouse Writers Workshop to date. Mike and I developed Intersection together and he wrote a total of 13 poems for the production, which premiered in 2009. You can go here to learn more about the show and buy tickets.

We are delighted to bring Intersection back to launch Season 10 from September 16-25. I hope to see you there!

    I saw this last year and it’s one of the most unforgettable ballets I’ve ever seen. Wonderful to see it back!

      Yes, I saw Carry On and it was terrific. This is different because instead of live music, there’s a narrative (via poetry and film) that really makes the ballet special. I’m not super objective on the poetry, but I will say the dance was captivating and the dancers really inhabit their characters fully.
