GHOSTS OF THE SOUTH” An Affrilachian Butoh Homage

Filmed and edited by Rainer Doost, Zamani Productions

Directed by Julie Becton Gillum in collaboration with Valeria Watson-Doost

The 18 minute film honors and calls forth the Ghosts of the Asheville River Arts District, a part of town in which blacks thrived and from which they were displaced.Fo otage is derived from a live performance at the fall 2011 opening of Valeria Watson-Doost’s art exhibit entitled “NiceNasty.” The exhibit and performance addressed the continuing inhumanity we visit on each other through war, torture and racism.

The choreographers and lead performers Valeria Watson-Doost (a black woman) and Julie Becton Gillium (a white women) both have deep historic roots in Western North Carolina. In this profoundly personal performance the two dancers take us from deep racial dissonance to possible redemption.

It is the same ray of hope that makes Valeria Watson-Doost’s art not only bearable, but beautiful.
