Canis Major, 2020 

An artist suffering from server writers block relies on the friendship of their dog in this

multi-genre sci-fi short. Based on many true stories, this video-animation hybrid ruminates the

relationship between dancing and earthly survival at the "end of the world"

Written and Animated by Charli Brissey

Featuring text from "Dancing at the End of the World: Choreographies of Time and Uncertainty" (forthcoming manuscript 2021)
