I love Abigail Child's Perils, which definitely draws on that silent-era 
slapstick vocabulary.

  Hello all,

  Does anyone know of any experimental films that have explored vaudeville, 
slapstick and/or silent era clown films (eg. Buster Keaton) in some way or 
another?

  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!
