Buster Keaton) in some way or another? Ken Jacobs, "Ontic Antics Starring Laurel and Hardy: Bye, Molly" (2005). I am working on a collaborative dance film with choreographer, Cori Olinghouse, who has been studying movement forms like eccentric dance, mime, and voguing. Our film will seek to invoke the spaces of Vaudeville through a Dada/Surrealist eye. We are attracted to the way these two forms share aspects of humor, oddity, and slapstick. Here's a link to a preview of our film project on our Kickstarter page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/139958170/ghost-line Some films that have inspired us thus far are Hans Richter's "Ghosts Before Breakfast" and Anna Halprin in James Broughton's "Golden Positions". Any leads will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
