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.

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.

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©ANNE•2016

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.
