N O S T A L G I A
We all have triggers that bring out certain emotions. Whether it’s a scent of a perfume, a specific song or just a simple text. Directed, filmed and edited by Emma Colton Music by RRUCCULLA Dancer: Paige Werman Choreography: In collaboration between Emma Colton and Paige Werman
This film was created in response to the rising number of hate crimes targeting Asian Americans at the beginning of the pandemic. At the time, I had sensed a lack of support from activists, artists and friends. I wanted to use my voice to increase public awareness. Despite our physical isolation, this piece allowed me to bring my community together, in support of Asians in our country.
The Perfect Smile 2019 Dixon Place show
The Perfect Smile is a piece that brings awareness to the inequalities in America’s oral healthcare system, known as the silent epidemic. This piece was inspired from personal experiences, curiosities and the book, “Teeth: The Story of Beauty, Inequality, and the Struggle for Oral Health in America” by Mary Otto.” The movement is a blend of choreography and improvisation based on each dancer's character and response to the material. I like to think of this piece as a reaction or response rather than a dance performance. Our mouth sustains life, needed to communicate and survive. Our teeth have the power to tell a person’s age and socioeconomic background. A person’s smile can go so far as to whether he or she will be hired, make a great first impression or be considered beautiful and healthy. In a country that coined the “Hollywood Smile” an ideal beauty standard that has now spread all over the world, a perfect smile should be accessible to all. Performed in the "8 in Show" program at Dixon Place Theater NYC Dancers: Paige Werman, Nadia K., Caitlin Burns, Kelly Flansburg, Marissa Graham, Jen Silver Choreographer : Emma Colton Music: Carey Clayton

Beyond the badass, powerful woman at its center, Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 thriller still traffics in some of the more exploitative aspects of the female revenge genre, complicating its legacy as a feminist film. Here’s our Take on how Kill Bill both defies and perpetuates those female revenge tropes, and why The Bride is still such a force to be reckoned with.
