Motorama at the Downs Santa Fe

Santa Fe, NM United States

After a two-year hiatus, the Dovetail Orchestra takes to the Motorama stage for a magical night of silent films with live music. For this one-time performance, Dovetail Orchestra will partner with SITE Santa Fe and take inspiration from SITE’s participation in the Feminist Art Coalition by scoring innovative, women-directed silent shorts from the earliest years of cinema. The orchestra comprises primarily women musicians.

Led by composer/conductor Ross Hamlin, the rotating cast of Dovetail Orchestra has carved out a unique niche for writing and performing music for lesser-seen early cinema gems, with a propensity for shorter works. Already posessing one of the most diverse stylistic palettes of any ensemble in the area, they will also be showcasing new song-based material before the films begin. Film directors whose works will be shown include Germaine Dulac, Cleo Madison, Lotte Reiniger, Maya Deren, Alice Guy-Blanche, and Lois Weber.
