“A rare and wonderful talent.”— New York Times

Mitchell Rose mines everyday life for the humorous and absurd in this award-winning series of films inspired by his choreography and performance art background. The program highlights Rose’s celebrated comedic work, including Elevator World (1999), a computer-animated essay on the politics of elevator riding, Modern Daydreams (2001), an exploration of the human connection with inanimate objects, and Contact (2012), a love letter to the respite of human interaction. 

Rose is an assistant professor for The Ohio State University’s Department of Dance. His eponymous dance company toured for 15 years—including appearances at the Spoleto Festivals in the United States and Italy—before Rose turned to filmmaking, for which he’s captured more than 50 awards at festivals and art venues.
