We’re thrilled to announce that our 360/VR film SILENT RESONANCE has been chosen to screen at the 2017 San Francisco Dance Film Festival. The first virtual reality experience from Pacific Northwest Ballet, SILENT RESONANCE features dancers Emma Love Suddarth and Miles Pertl performing stunning duets. PNB Company dancer Price Suddarth choreographed the piece with the concept of VR’s immersivity in mind: his work seeks to bring the viewer into the mind of a dancer. SILENT RESONANCE was directed by our Creative Director, Scott Squires, and produced by Aaron Rhodes and Julia Fryett.
The 2017 San Francisco Dance Film Festival takes place October 19–22 at the Brava Theater Center.
