2011 – The camera is turned on Maida Withers in this study of motion and the force of nature by Ayodamola (Ayo) Okunseinde.

Maida I and Maida II are part of Withers’ Dance Portraits on Screen Series developed by Where Where IS Productions!

The concept of the series is to give two different filmmakers the dance footage shot in green screen and have two portraits created on video that could then be exhibited in galleries and museums. Any Okunseinde and Anthony Gongora were the filmmakers selected for Maida I and Maida II.

The premiere was at DANCE:FILM showing in the expansive Dome Theatre at Artisphere, October 21, 2011 in Arlington, Virginia and next for Danzlenz at the Habitat Center in New Delhi, India, February 2012.

Dance Portraits on Screen has been supported in part by Paul Falcon and Bella Faccia Inc. the premiere television studio in Washington, DC.  A grant from Arlington County Cultural Affairs Office supported the first films in the series.
