Attend the screening at the NW Film Forum of a new dance film conceived and directed by Argentinian choreographer Margarita Bali, featuring UW students and Seattle community dancers, as part of the Creative Fellowships Initiative.
As the UW Creative Research Fellow in the UW Department of Dance, Bali has spent months thinking about Seattle’s stairs: the elegant stairs in UW’s Suzzallo Library; the bold central staircase in Odegaard Undergraduate Library; the concrete steps in downtown Seattle’s Freeway Park. The film was shot over eleven weeks on stairs throughout Seattle and the University of Washington, including Volunteer Park, Seattle Public Library, Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle University, the Bullitt Center, and more.

About the Creative Fellowships Initiative
The Creative Fellowships Initiative is a new interdisciplinary pilot project at the University of Washington exploring the nature of creative research. The Initiative, funded by a three and a half year, $750,000 grant award by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, seeks to advance the field of performing arts by supporting artists in the development of new work and by integrating the performing arts disciplines into the broader curriculum.
