We're creating a series of very short films based on legendary cartoonist Jules Feiffer's ultracool modern Dancer - with a live dancer! We would love your help (re)introducing an audience to the rapturous world of Feiffer.
Our collaborators include beautiful Andrea Weber ( a star of Merce Cunningham Dance Company), jazz luminary Jane Ira Bloom, and celebrated modern choreographers Larry Keigwin and Susan Marshall.
This project is the talk of the town, and we intend to see the films exhibited in public - for free! - throughout NY, America and abroad.
You can read all the details at http://sites.google.com/site/dennistwinsproject/Home
and take a peek at our choreography in the rehearsal video above.

Your contributions make filming possible this Spring! Costume the cast, feed the crew, build a beautiful setting for our Dancer.
Create a series of upbeat, funny, timely and timeless movies with us.
Jump in and make someone happy!

Contributions to FEIFFER DANCER FILMS are deeply appreciated and tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
