Earlier this year, Clinard Dance participated in a creative exchange with Hrishikesh's Center for Contemporary Dance in India. Now filmmaker Diandra Miller has documented their work in her documentary, Concurrent Rhythms. Here is some background on Miller:
Diandra Miller is a native of Glendale, Arizona and currently lives and works in Chicago, Illinois having received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Over the past two years she has been working with Clinard Dance to create unique documentation for their repertoire productions; such as the 40-page publication illustrating the process of Watershed, along with directing the documentary ‘Concurrent Rhythms’ that follows the international collaboration between Clinard Dance and Hrishikesh’s Centre for Contemporary Dance. For 'Concurrent Rhythms' Diandra collaborated with the filmmaker Tapan Pandit from Pune, India as well as the composer and musician, Cody Rowlands from New York to score the documentary.
In her individual art practice, Diandra Miller catalogs how folklore, narrative, and history function in our contemporary concepts and places of play. Focusing on the imagery of game and leisure structures for everyone from womb to tomb; Diandra's art practice situates itself in research, collaboration, and a multifaceted approach to making.
