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.

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?

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.

OFFSET @ Deptford X Fringe Festival 2018

I would like to invite you to my newest short film OFFSET screening @ Deptford X Fringe Festival 2018

OFFSET
There is no guidebook on how to survive the agonising hurricane of pain when you find your most intimate self betrayed. Trapped between walls of pain, you try to fight your way out.
How much of the pain do you need in order to survive, what time do you get to test the truth of your expectations and how much do you let yourself be told of what is right? In fight for breath, love balances us sharply on hopes blade.

Concept | director | cinematographer – Anne Verheij
Composer – Cassie Kinsoshi
Dancer – Kathrin Gramelsberger

Screenings daily @ DeliX

Undercurrent
We find ourselves uncomfortably close with a dancer on screen. Are we allowed to possess her?
She is oblivious to her spectators until the momentum changes and she becomes aware that she is no longer alone.
On the verge of losing possession of her body she takes control, turning her attention to the camera and the audience behind it. Encroaching on them, like a predator stalking its prey.
