AMORPHIC

AMORPHIC

A short experimental dance film, which grew out of a reflection on a state of being constantly connected to and dependent on digital devices, and the mental pull this may have on us as individuals and as a society. How do we stay physically present and grounded in an increasingly fleeting yet demanding digital world?

ENCOUNTER

ENCOUNTER
ENCOUNTER

a DANCE FILM in two parts;

Unknown, yet Known and To Find the Common Frequency. 8 min.

ENCOUNTER explores the curiosity, fear and mistrust that is so common when faced with something (or someone) unfamiliar, and the constant shift between resistance and acceptance, to finally arrive at a place of humility and mutual understanding. The video is in two parts, and originally screened as part of a commissioned piece for dance, video and string quartet in five sections to music by Magnar Åm.

Created in collaboration with video artist Run Shayo and performer Tori Sparks, commissioned by composer Magnar Åm, and performed live with Ålesund String Quartet in Volda and Ålesund (Norway) in November 2010.
