Satellite Film Originals is an evening of original film and video created in collaboration with Satellite choreographers, composers and artists. For the first time Satellite will premiere a full program of film, video and original scores in partnership with Bowery Arts and Sciences.
Satellite Film Originals is the first event in a series leading to the premiere of "Narcissus" - an immersive experience inspired by Ballet Russes. This season, Satellite produces a series of showings, events and surprises, leading to the Spring 2018 premier of their new large scale collaborative work under Artistic Director Kevin Draper.
In a few short seasons Satellite Collective has created a body of short film, video and original film scores in collaboration with composers and choreographers, poets and writers. Satellite Film Originals will feature "Twin Star Event" and "Edie Leaves Twice" the first and second parts of a multi-year trilogy of films in collaboration with resident Film Maker Lora Robertson, with composer Ellis Ludwig-Leone, and librettos by Kevin Draper. Scores for the films are by Ellis, and Stelth Ulvang of The Lumineers.
The team creating this immersive event will be led by Daniel Applebaum, NYCB (Director), Devin Alberda, NYCB (Ballet Director), Marika Anderson, NYCB (Branding), Brandon Stirling Baker (Lighting), Kevin Draper (Architect), Lora Robertson (Filmmaker) and Aaron Severini, NYCB/Juilliard (Composer and Music Director).
Founded in 2010, Satellite believes in artists collaborating as equals, globally and virtually. We incubate performances, arts exchanges, and publications that allow artists to work together because we believe that is the future.
