The Tiny Dance Film Series is a collaboration between New York City-based choreographer Peter Kyle and Washington DC-based sound artist James Bigbee Garver, featuring dancer Holley Farmer. The installation consists of very short (usually between 60 & 180 seconds) and very small (always 320 x 240 pixels) dance films presented on tiny screens in a darkened kiosk for an audience of one. The result is a uniquely personal, interactive experience for the viewer which evokes the nostalgia of an old-time penny arcade.

The addition of a soundtrack is the only post-production allowed; all of the films are done in "one take" with no picture editing after the shoot; no artificial light is used during the shoot. The tiny format and the disorienting venue in which the films are screened provide further possibility for both filmic and physical trickery. This process of creation encourages the filmmakers to concentrate on what they feel is useful in dance and on film: corporeal and mechanical magic.

The project evolved out of guerrilla performances choreographed, rehearsed, and filmed in Lower Manhattan's public spaces. Peter, James, and Holley have devised a set of tight restrictions governing how the films are made:

Begun in 2006, the ongoing series currently includes seven completed films. The artists continue to develop plans for new films as well as other installation formats.
