Less by Teahm Beahm

A lush and melancholic work of memory and forgetting, “Less” vacillates between quiet, contemplative imagery (pieces of a letter falling overhead like snow, cotton candy savored at a funeral, a slow-motion ride on a carousel) and rapid-fire, gesture-rich dancing. Wearing a classical-length tutu made of office binder clips, a solo dancer explores notions of nostalgia, sensation, and grief as she moves through virtuosic phrases and theatrical vignettes.   Photographs are clipped into and released from the skirt, the costume physically and metaphorically replicating notions of emotional scrapbooking and loss.  Inspired by Randall’s aunt’s struggle with Bulbar ALS, “Less” borrows gestures from a body that is deteriorating at a rapid pace while the mind still grasps at an active, vibrant, and sensual history.

Black Crow

Official music video for UK artist Blackbird and The Storm's single "Black Crow" from the album The Water is Rising.

"Black Crow" warns of catastrophic apocolypse at the hands of Mother Nature. The song was written well before the floods hit Boulder County, Colorado in September of 2013. However, the floodwaters started rising just as the guitars for the track were being finished. Hours later, the studio was abandoned as it began to fill with water before finally being lost completely to the flood.

More from Teahm Beahm

Pressures of “producing” take on new meaning after pumping milk between power meetings in airplane bathrooms and gas station stalls.  “More” is an experimental, sci-fi peek into the extremes that shape the internal world of one woman who endeavors to "have it all."  Dressed in a gown of 200 milk jugs with a tricked-out 1950's vacuum cleaner modified into a breast pump, our heroine is a human machine of hyper-production, drained and afloat in the liminal space between dreams and reality.

More has screened around the globe and took a Top Ten award (juried) at Facade Film Festival 2014 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
