AfroSocialiteLifeDiva, originally a full length stage dance theatre work, was transformed into a 25 minute dance film to be aired on European Arts Channel Canal Arte in the fall of 2005. Filmed on location in Oliver’s current home town of Champaign-Urbana Illinois, a local, national and international team of performers, artists, technicians and support staff contributed to the making of this 25 minute version of the saga of women moving across geographies of landscape, bodies, and matters of spirit in one vibrant American family.
