Under Review: Gold Butte

Made available to the public on Earth Day, April 22, 2019

Under Review: Gold Butte takes place in Gold Butte National Monument outside of Mesquite, Nevada and is the first film in the Under Review Series. The story uses mythology from the Paiute tribe to convey the dichotomy between governmental corruption and the earth's natural purity. Gold Butte's choreography explores three underlying schematics for movement - geological events, Paiute folklore of the wolf and coyote, and the oscillating dynamics of a symbiotic relationship. Under Review: Gold Butte premiered on exhibition for the Creative Climate Awards hosted by the Human Impacts Institute at the Taipei Cultural and Economic Center in NYC from Sep 17 - Oct 12, 2018.
