Q&A with Yi-Chen Chiang, composer for student film ‘Dancing Man’


“Dancing Man,” a new short film from IU grad student Robert Mack, is set to premier at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 26 at IU Cinema. The event is free but ticketed. Tickets are available on the IU Cinema website. 

“Dancing Man” follows a young male ballet dancer — David — who, unmotivated by his current career, finds himself lost in a fantasy world heavily inspired by classic Hollywood movie musicals. David, however, becomes torn between the girl he loves and the chance for his dream career when a new choreographer presents him with a unique opportunity. 

The film is co-directed by Mack and IU alumna Clarisse Gamblin, with an original score by IU alumna Yi-Chen Chiang. The Indiana Daily Student spoke with Chiang about her work on “Dancing Man” on Feb. 14.
