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.

Dance and the moving image research with Harriet Latham

Yesterday Harriet Latham and I dived back into the physical part of our summer collaboration.

Over the past couple of months we have been filming, watching and talking about our collaboration and now we are back to filming.
One of the key points in this research is the trust that we have in each other and each others work approach. The space this creates for our individual and dual growth is fascinating and encouraging. It takes our work process to the next level where we have the freedom to try new things.

We are on the move!

Most exciting news!

We have started to collaborate with two amazing composers to take our recorded sounds to the next level: a soundtrack.

Composer Cassie Kinoshi (On An Empty Stomach) has agreed to make a soundtrack for our third location.

Sound designer Jack Goodwin (Teokorus) has agreed to create the soundtrack for our first location.

ANNE• crosses new borders in 2015!

By the end of October 2014 I started a research project with choreographer Miku Tsuchiya. The process consisted out of four makers intensives on four different locations throughout the UK in which spatial composition, dance, painting, movement and film were explored. The flow was enticing and the footage was rich. Consistency and style began to form out of two different disciplines, dance and visual art, bringing it to a new level in which exploration and intuition became the leading roles of this collaboration. Central to this research is the use of the digital canvas as our main tool.

When in December 2014 Miku moved back to Japan, we became well aware that in this digital age boundaries are relative when it comes to distance. Since we have landed in the next step of our work process, the digital step, we have decided to collaborate from opposite ends of the world.

From this day we will log the process of our collaboration onto this blog as a support for the work being created through theory and practice.

Collaboration with Jack Goodwin

I dare you!

Tomorrow, 25th of November, my almost 48hour collaboration with composer Jack Goodwin will be shown at Goldsmiths Great Hall at 7.30pm.

Jack has asked me to make an abstract and non-narrative film to accompany his soundtrack, after he saw my film work. This collaboration is a first in a line of experiments we will undertake over the coming months in which sound and film will be explored.

We start with me responding in a first visual film reaction to the soundtrack Jack composed, after which Jack will compose a first musical reaction to my film. Further down the line we will see what this will bring us and if or how we can start the process of creating simultaneously.

Come and see!

Autumn research with Miku Tsuchiya

This autumn I am researching dance and film with choreographer and dancer Miku Tsuchiya. In this collaboration we let a chosen location influence and challenge both our views and work methods to come to a new image that combines dance and film as one.

These photo’s are a sneak peek into our current work process.
