SUMMON: Dance Film

Grey Gardens is a haven where women come to feel free and to feel safe.  Take a load off.  Commune.  Exhale. Laugh.  Be seen. Be weird.  Absorb love.  Armed with the knowledge that they can always return here.  This space was carved for them.


SUMMON is written, directed, and edited by filmmaker & LACDC’s artistic director Jamila Glass, choreographed by former artistic director Genevieve Carson, captured by prolific cinematographer Nathan Kim, scored by Oscar & Emmy award-winning and Grammy-nominated Kris Bowers, and features a cast of phenomenal women from LACDC and the LA dance community.
