Synopsis: “Time Capsule – A Physical Documentary” is a dance film, directed and choreographed by Valerie Green, in collaboration with cinematographer/editor Alex Lopez, composer Mark Katsaounis, and the dancers of Valerie Green/Dance Entropy. Eight solos physically trace emotional experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic, woven together with a score of vocal reflections and incidental sound from the diverse sampling of New York City landscapes in which each dancer was filmed. A dynamic interplay of beauty, strength, and resilience, “Time Capsule” is a testament to the faith we have in our City, its vast infrastructure, the delicate spirits that inhabit it, and the tender terrains we all hold within.

Director's Statement

In light of the Covid 19 Pandemic the performing arts industry had been hit very hard. Dancers were not allowed to dance or perform publicly, although video and filming was allowed. Therefore I decided to make a dance film about our emotional experience of the pandemic.

Director's Bio

Valerie Green has been an active dancer, choreographer and teacher in the New York City dance community since 1995. She created her own company, Dance Entropy in 1998, adding a permanent company home in 2005 called Green Space. Green Space serves the dance community by providing an affordable and welcoming environment for rehearsals, classes, and performances. Her choreography has been seen throughout NYC and has also toured to various venues throughout the US. Internationally she has taught and performed in Albania, Armenia, Austria Azerbaijan, Bosnia, Burkina Faso, Canada, Colombia, Croatia, Cuba, France, Guatemala, Georgia, Greece, India, Italy, Lebanon, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, and Sweden. Valerie’s choreographic work and teaching style is influenced by her formative years working with the Erick Hawkins Dance Company, her certification in Body/Mind Fitness, her practice as a Somatic Psychotherapist, and undergraduate work at University of Wisconsin-Madison. While Green routinely make multi-media dance work, Time Capsule, is her first film.
