I am really excited by how film can inform choreography, with its potential for non-linear performance, special effects, and multiple angles and locations.
There Is No Reason For This To Be Where It Is
Choreographer and writer
Created in response to Neon Dance's PuzzleCreature, this video explores the effect of architectural space on our psyche. Using a mix of original writing, quotations from my own dairies, and phrases from Arakawa and Madeline Gins' essays and audio recordings, the piece builds motifs around the idea that architecture could create eternal life, a reversible destiny. The choreography was largely inspired by the physical structures in which it was filmed, as well exploring the space of screen itself.
Peculiar by Libby Tidley
Inspired by Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, this song tells the story of feeling outcast and the journey to empowerment. The dance style is contemporary, working to find unusual movements and body positions to draw out the themes of peculiarity.
