Well Contested Sites

A 13 minute dance and theater film that delves into issues of ¬†incarceration in the United States. Through dance and stunning visuals the film explores the effect of imprisonment on the body: the “well contested site”. ¬†Filmed on Alcatraz, the cast is comprised of a group professional performers and previously incarcerated men. We hope to engage the audience in a dialogue around the problem of over-incarceration in the American justice system, utilizing the film as a tool to begin a discussion long over due in our society.

Well Contested Sites is a collaboration between choreographer Amie Dowling and our very own Artistic Executive Director of Rapt Productions, Austin Forbord.
