Independent Film: Kitchen Dance

Inspired by the original Frankfurt Kitchen in the permanent collection of Mia (Minneapolis Institute of Arts), Maribeth Romslo created a kitchen set and produced a conceptual short dance film that explores the multi-dimensional lives of women and their work.

The Frankfurt Kitchen is an example of changing domestic expectations, codifying traditional female labor obligations through efficiency and predictability. Through modern movement, Kitchen Dance examines the complex demands women still face today in pursuit of their own aspirations at home and in the workplace.
