Jody Sperling is the Founder/Artistic Director of Time Lapse Dance. She has created over 40 works including many furthering the legacy of modern dance pioneer Loïe Fuller. The filmmakers commissioned Sperling to choreograph Fractal Memories, a contemporary homage to Loïe Fuller that utilizes cutting-edge 21st century technologies to illuminate and expand upon Fuller's process. Especially noteworthy is Sperling's reimagining of Fuller's famous Fire Dance, in which the dancer appeared to self- immolate. Conceived by Fuller at the dawn of the fossil fuel age, the Fire Dance finds enormous resonance today, as reanimated by Sperling.
