dance dance evolution


This video is a mash up of women from horror movies edited so they appear to dance to Bill Munroe's blue grass tunes. This work explores ideas around matrimony, archetypes and closure of past relationships and institutions. The iconographic women in these films reference both the linear narratives and the non linear video editing process. Somewhat liberated from their horror filled fictions but yet still controlled by the movements and puppetry choreographed by the author.

Shown here in conjunction with two dancers - Neesa Kenemy & Meredith Thompson at LabCab Festival. Live dance piece titled Mellowdrama Choreographed by Neesa Kenemy & Meredith Thompson.
