Short Film Program

SummerStage: Waxahatchee / Swearin’ / OHMME / Delphine Blue (DJ Set) + Shorts

SummerStage is back in 2022! Live performances from Waxahatchee, Swearin’, OHMME, and Delphine Blue — preceded by Jessica Bardsley’s Life Without Dreams and Iva Gocheva’s My Heart is My Only Country, two short films programmed by Rooftop.


Wed Jun 22 5:00 PM

Identical twin sisters Katie and Allison Crutchfield haven’t always played music together—like their early project PS Eliot—but when they do, it’s easy to see the talent and passion they share. This year these former Brooklyn residents will return to New York City to reshare the stage with their respective bands: Waxahatchee – Katie’s band and a 2020 SummerStage Anywhere alumn — which has evolved from a solo acoustic act into the lush country-tinged rock arrangements of her latest album Saint Cloud; and Swearin’, Allison’s band with Kyle Gilbride, Amanda Bartley and Jeff Bolt, whose self-titled 2012 debut remains a Philly indie rock classic. They’re joined by Chicago duo Ohmme, touring in support of their 2020 LP Fantasize Your Ghost.

The Films

Life Without Dreams

Jessica Bardsley | US, France | 13

Life Without Dreams is set within the outer space of consciousness, where the surfaces of far out planetary bodies form the terrain for an exploration of the gradual disappearance of darkness, 24/7 capitalism, and insomnia.

My Heart is My Only Country

Iva Gocheva | US, Azerbaijan | 12

Structured over a remote therapy session between Elya, a young Azerbaijani woman, and her Polish therapist, the film explores the existential challenges of belonging to a country not one's own.
