Undercurrent @ LSFF 2018

It is with great joy that I can announce that my newest film Undercurrent is accepted into the London Short Film Festival 2018!
The festival runs from 12th – 21st of January 2018.

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.

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, London.
Juxtaposing two dance films created from the same footage, ONES captures the individual’s rhythm beating amidst the pulse of the restless city.

The Outlet Dance Project is committed to providing artists who identify or have identified as women an opportunity to share their artistic vision through site-specific dance, film, and work created for the stage. In partnership with Grounds For Sculpture – an internationally renowned contemporary sculpture park – collaboration, community building, and interdisciplinary experimentation are an integral part of the festival. The Outlet is dedicated to supporting all traditional and nontraditional dance forms. The festival celebrates the intersections of visual and moving arts, exploring relationships between sculpture and dance, between place and movement.

ONES VANISHING POINT @ Deptford X Fringe Festival!

Miku and I have some very exciting news:

ONES VANISHING POINT will be screened during Deptford X Fringe Festival!

@ Deli X, 156 Deptford High Street, SE8 3PQ
22 – 30 September 2017
Mon – Fri 09.00–18.30
Sat 09.00–18.00

In ONES VANISHING POINT the audience is drawn into a world of strong visual movement, where we lose our sense of gravity and direction. The inseparable relationship between the interior and exterior is tested. The 7-minute video installation dives under the skin of brutalist architecture where echoes of mankind linger.

ANNE • goes Japanese

Last month Miku and I took our collaboration to the next boarder: Japan!

We have explored Japan’s city Tokyo and the rural environment of the Izu Peninsula through film and movement.

Whilst filming the theme of the individual versus the mass crept into our frame. Not only does Japan have millions of people living in just one city or travelling over the many highways and train tracks, it also has a great individual disconnect with its direct surroundings.
Dark subject matters as loneliness and the high suicide rate amongst the young generation made their appearance.
The beauty of Japan’s unplanned architectural compositions, however, gave us calligraphy lines to move and explore.

Miku and I are looking to deepen this movement research in a country that has so many beautiful contrasts.

So stay tuned for more exciting projects across borders @AnnePointNL

ONES COUNTERPOINT trailer

The trailer of ONES COUNTERPOINT is online!

Please go and check it out!

More news and developments from us on our ONES collaboration soon straight from Japan @AnnePointNL !

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.

In ONES COUNTERPOINT Anne Verheij (NL) and Miku Tsuchiya (Japan) cross the vast distance between the UK and Japan via internet to make their second diptych (the first being nominated at LSFF 2017 for Best Experimental Short Film).
Their two individually created contemporary dance films, made from the same footage, are juxtaposed on a single screen where the soundtrack, especially created out of the field recordings they made in the UK and Japan, bring them together.

Thank you LSFF 2017!

Miku and I want to thank London Short Film Festival for having our film ONES!
We had a marvelous time with the excellent programming and meeting the talented artists involved.

We also want to thank LSFF and the ICA for nominating us for their award and making us feel so welcome at their wonderful venue.

ONES is jumping straight in to this new year with its third and final part of the triptych currently in development, so please stay tuned and we hope to invite you soon!

Cheerio,  @AnnePointNL
