24 October: ONES triptych @ Women in Dance Film Festival, Yokahama

Miku and I are happy to announce that our triptych ONES will be screened at Women in Dance Film Festival, Yokohama, Japan

24 October 2pm
@7artscafe

ONES [ 2 women, 2 countries, 2 disciplines, 1 film ]

Miku Tsuchiya – dancer | editor

Anne Verheij – concept | cinematographer | editor

ONES VANISHING POINT
a woman is stuck under the surface of London’s brutalist architecture where echoes of mankind linger.
The inseparable relationship between the interior and exterior is put to the test in a fight of the natural body versus the manmade surroundings. Through strong movement and impossible angles the spectator starts to lose their sense of gravity, drifting closer to their own vanishing point.
ONES COUNTERPOINT
depicts the inner voice of a haunted woman by crawling under her moving skin. The interior and exterior are brought together by the three elements of water, wind and earth.
As the lines between movement and manipulation blur, the woman’s calm facade cracks, revealing something dark and mysterious that makes its way to the surface.
ONES
is a collaboration between Dutch visual artist Anne Verheij and Japanese choreographer Miku Tsuchiya, in which film and dance are explored across the former pedestrian tunnels of Elephant & Castle.
Juxtaposing two dance films created from the same footage, ONES captures the individual’s rhythm beating amidst the pulse of the restless city.

#TeKijkGezet – 4th edition Sept-Nov 2021

The fourth edition of Te Kijk Gezet is now on display @ Koningsstraat 6, Amsterdam.
A collaboration between @AVWS-artwork and myself.

Tegen de Zwaartekracht [Defying Gravity]
This 4th edition of Te Kijk Gezet is the latest result of the ongoing conversation about letting go, in which the artists research their family bond and age difference.
Defying Gravity is a spatial design by Anne in which she provides a third of the space for each artist to use. Visual layers are created by horizontal planes that both take and create space. An exciting relation between the works reveals itself by putting them in this framed context. The three artworks play with the recognition and denial of material, composition and expectations.

echo @ Kings Place London 19-20 November

Cassie Kinoshi and I are excited to announce that our new collaboration echo can be seen on 19 and 20 November at Kings Place London as part of London Unwrapped.

Experience echo, the new immersive film installation from long-time collaborators composer Cassie Kinoshi (Artist in residence for London Unwrapped) and visual artist Anne Verheij.
The installation is a sonic and visual exploration of our connection with ourselves and each other in London.

Filmed entirely using handheld cameras, echo is an immersive audio-visual triptych with London as its main character. Day to day experiences of London life are manipulated through exploratory editing and camera movement, creating an encapsulating visceral experience of the ever changing cityscape.

echo’s electro-acoustic score was created with field-recordings captured around London; familiar sounds of trains, crowds, park life and traffic are altered and re-conditioned into the unfamiliar. Blended with synthesisers, a string quintet formed from members of Chineke! Ensemble were recorded to provide ethereal textures. These samples further elevate an evocative sound world that emulates the ever-changing experience of existing in the transformative city of London.

The programme brings together Chiaki Nagano and Takahiko Iimura’s collaborations with butoh pioneers Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. Connecting these works to present-day conceptions of movement, society, and technology is In Passing. “

In Passing
A short film about navigating the invisible to connect.
Through movement and unexpected camera angles we try to find our way into the 24/7 world in which we start to lose connection with ourselves and others. How close can the digital age bring us together and which borders do we cross?

In Passing © ANNE• 2019
Friday 17 Sept, 6:00pm
Barbican, Cinema 1
This screening features a video introduction by Michael Sakamoto

The first of our two screenings celebrating butoh co-founders Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno through wildly inventive and highly surreal cinematic works.

Our bodies are in crisis! This programme brings together Chiaki Nagano and Takahiko Iimura’s collaborations with butoh pioneers Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. JAEFF attempts to define a dance style which defies definition. Beginning with the first entry in Nagano’s Mr O trilogy, viewers will be plunged headfirst into the grotesque absurdities of a form which seeks to “resist fixity”. The unforgettable imagery of Portrait of Mr O is complemented by Iimura’s “cinedance” recordings of Hijikata’s early 1960s performances. Both Anma and Rose Color Dance are efforts to film choreography and to choreograph film. 
Connecting these works to present-day conceptions of movement, society, and technology is Anne Verheij’s In Passing.

Anders dan anderen
© Alida Verheij 2021

Alleen in het hoofd
Eenzaam in het lijf
Omgeven door somberheid
Dat is het gevoel als van een depressie
Alles is anders, voelt anders of voelt niets
Maar…..
 
Langzaam laat de depressie los
De cirkel gedachten verdwijnen
Het lichaam wordt warm
Langzaam komt vertrouwen
Laat alles los wat zwart is
