Start the Ball Rolling

Guest Artist Repertory – Brighton Dance Festival 2017

Music: Run Lola Run Introduction

Group work for 6 students. Cumulative theme and variation, inspired by the German film Run Lola Run, in which the lives of the characters are played out three times with subtle variations in timing that yield very different results.

In the dance, one performer enters the space and completes a movement phrase. She then restarts, and a second dancer enters, altering the trajectory. The phrase initiates a third time (new dancer facing upstage), and another joins to change the course of things again.

I manipulated GoPro footage captured in the studio to create projected background video.
