Dust Horizon: Dance, Film and Landscape Inspired by the Poetry of Gailmarie Pahmeier
Inspired by the poetry of Gailmarie Pahmeier, this multi-media dance performance presented by Collateral & Co. Contemporary Dance Company and the Nevada Museum of Art explores the landscape of Nevada through choreography, photography, and film.
Gailmarie Pahmeier is a recipient of Nevada Art Council’s esteemed Project Fellowship Grant and has spent the last year in residency at a variety of Nevada state parks composing narratives about her experience focusing on the people and environments she encounters in these often remote places. Inspired by Pahmeier’s writings, Collateral & Co. traveled to three Nevada State Parks: Washoe Lake State Park, Wild Horse Reservoir, and Valley of Fire, to record and document movement in the landscapes. In this special event, Pahmeier’s poetry combined with Collateral & Co. live and recorded movement will bring the vast and ever-changing beauty of Nevada’s landscape to the Nevada Museum of Art for two multi-sensory nights of poetry, film and dance.
Collateral & Co. Contemporary Dance Company was founded in May 2017 when Founder and Artistic Director, Caitlin McCarty, returned home to the Reno, Nevada area after working for New York-based Gallim Dance. Collateral & Co. explores the intricacies of the human experience and investigates the nuances of everyday life. The company recently welcomed, Leslie Balzer, also a native Nevadan, as their Assistant Artistic Director.
