    The Physical TV Company was thrilled that Fuselage screened Richard James Allen and Karen Pearlman's dance film, DIGITAL AFTERLIVES. While we had to let the film travel for us from Australia, it was a delight to work with the festival.

    So grateful to be included in the program of the 1st ever FUSELAGE DANCE FILM FESTIVAL! The screening was in the middle of an art walk-very cool! A lovely event with the most gracious hosts Stella and Will. Looking forward to many more seasons of FUSELAGE!
