Butte at Radar Dance in Vancouver

We’re very pleased that Butte, featuring Byron Chief-Moon, will be included in the Radar Dance Film event at VanCity on November 21, 2013.

RADAR: Exchanges in Dance Film Frequencies features a program of local/national and international dedicated to the exploration and evolution of dance film.

Butte unfolds over the course of a day, marking the progression of time at four key points – sunrise, mid-day, late afternoon, and sundown. Filmed on the Blood Reserve in the plains and ancestral grounds of Southern Alberta, the camera instinctively accentuates dancer-choreographer Byron Chief-Moon’s deep connection to the land. The film captures images of nature and the connectiveness with the land – undulating waves of wild grass, the slow passage of clouds, pastoral, woodland thicket, and streams. The body as landscape is the central image; where the flesh, bone and muscle become synonymous with the land.


Butte was nominated for Best Short Film and Best Cinematography at the First People’s Festival in Montreal in 2007.
