Make Me Dance (65 min)
Tatyana Bronstein, Director | USA | 2016 | Doc

“Make Me Dance” is a documentary that takes an in-depth look at one of the most prestigious dance schools in the United States, The Boston Conservatory. World-renowned choreographer, Darrell Grand Moultrie, has chosen to hold the residency at the Boston Conservatory to craft his new work, “Winds of Now” for young students. The film documents Moultrie’s choreography and preparation for his piece from conception through rehearsals, culminating in the opening night at BoCo Theater.

Margaret Moody Puppets

Margaret Moody loves the way two hands and a few puppets can present a whole story. She studied with master puppeteer Li Tien-lu of Taiwan for three years, and continues to use the intricate puppets and choregraphy of Bu Dai Xi (‘cloth bag drama’) in performance. Margaret performs mainly for children and enjoys creating shows with fairies and other magical creatures. In addition to her solo work, Margaret performs with Dream Tale Puppets and Galapagos Puppets.
