A short film and Virtual Reality experience

Fall For Dance 17.jpg

red nightfall productions presents...

 

A new concept in film, a hybrid: part fashion film, dance film, music video, using orchestral music and movement to tell the story of a young woman who has lost everything and must choose forgiveness or revenge.  Shot with 360 degree capture technology, this will be a traditional film for release in theaters, and a Virtual Reality experience for viewing across various platforms.

CRONE was premiered as a one-act ballet by the University of Texas at Austin's Dance Repertory Theatre in November of 2017, and was awarded 'Top Ten Dance and Classical Treasures of 2017' by the Austin Chronicle.

CONGRATULATIONS to our dancers, musicians, and designers on Fall For Dance being named to:

Austin Chronicle - Robert Faires' Top 10 Dance and Classical Treasures of 2017   

"Dorothy O'Shea Overbey's 'Crone' paid lush tribute to narrative ballets of yore in a mythic tale inspired by The Rite of Spring [...] with its luxe orchestral score by composer-in-residence Samuel Lipman, colorful and flowing costumes by Aaron Kubacak, and graceful movements, this work had its eye on the present as much as the past[.]"
