(34) Swampass Diary

Rohan Quine - New York(34) Swampass Diary. As experimental dancer Xanthan Merchant, in the short film Swampass Diary directed by Chad Heeter.

For a change from my usual “rugged lumberjack” type of role, I was here cast as a fey and effete little “experimental dancer” named Xanthan Merchant, which was quite a stretch, as you may imagine. This vol-au-vent of silliness is from a quietly hilarious mockumentary film, in which the lovely Janet Amateau and I get to bitch and swoon, respectively, when we’re interviewed about a legendary male dancer we used to know, who had the power of a cheetah and the grace of a swan. Here, Janet here puts the haught back into haughty; while I run the gamut from delicate to fernlike, then from fernlike all the way back to delicate again. (1’26”)
